Beloved Flower Lover,
“he became the biggest party animal ever”… she whispered to herself, as she caught herself smiling beautifully and filling the hall with flowers for the party…solstice was over now it was party time!
He always had a way of helping friends to grasp in their minds why it was so important for them to do the things they did….
Yes a little different to the Jan 1st way of expressing new year.
He referred to the winter solstice as the “new year.” As the sun returns, with it comes our first foods- our traditional foods and a load of hugs and kisses being shared with families.
She took another relaxing flower filled bath before preparing the meal for all who were expected.
Open hearted she mused to herself….
“He becomes the biggest party animal giving thanks for the past year blessings and expressing intentions for the new year”.
She decided what finery to wear for the party, ready for the welcoming of extended family who came to celebrate this winter ceremony with a dinner, song, and handmade gifts to honor each other. Smiling, recalling how they had resolved some major challenges. This time really counted as she recalled how their house had been the centre of resolved hurt and now genuine affection. Yes this pretty garden was the result of a lot of weeding!
It’s was very beautiful….
The London Flower Lover
