Woohoo! It is Blood Lilly time again here in Western Australia.
The bright red is a bit of light in my day. Even the black dog can’t ignore how happy and beautiful they are.
It isn’t just the pretty things that help remind us to keep trying either. How about a challenge? Something to keep you distracted and busy and break into those unhelpful thoughts… Plant identification.
Can anyone help? This one isn’t something I’m familiar with. Perhaps a Barleria?
Then there are the things that make you laugh. A friend once told me that in deepest despair and the depths of depression something made him laugh. It was a massive discovery. To be capable of laughter is a sign hope exists.
This discovery cracked me up…
Nothing says Australian like an old Ute carrying steel kangaroos complete with cutout weapons and topped off with our beloved flag. Perfect!
And finally a little closer to my heart were these
Drawings for Mother’s Day which remind me I am needed and cared for. Don’t you just love the gigantic lips 😂!?
Joy and love and laughter and beauty. Things that make life well worth wading through the dark times for.
