On Twitter Bel found this amazing treasure and rightly observes that you have to get up close to see the beauty in some things. Enjoy the little things is, as regular readers know, one of my rules for life (and is indeed well known as rule #32)

Barbara Segall shared this colourful sedum mix in a seaside planter. Barbara says: This is one of the boxes along the sea wall at Whitstable where I am spending a few days this week. It is for work... but oh how wonderful it is to be virtually on the sea! I can feel my eyes and shoulders relaxing and the eyes just drinking in the view. Clouds, sea, shore, tide, oyster beds, people constantly on the move on the sea wall. I grew up on the coast and I realise how much I miss that view of sea and shore! Wish I could paint.." I wish I could paint and I really want to go to the seaside as well. It feels like a very long time since I last saw the sea because of the pandemic. I can close my eyes and think of Barbara's words and smell the seaside air.
