When the heart is full . . .

. . . the tongue is empty. This is a saying from the Philippines, or at least how I remember it after many years. This week my heart is so full – with visits from friends, trips to places new and old, the extraordinary, ever-increasing spectacle of spring flowers – that my fingers are silent on the keyboard and pictures can tell the story instead.

    Love the pix, as always! I liked the bony boats. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an asphodel in real life, or not knowingly, at any rate. Will be looking out for them knowledgeably when next somewhere in Europe — wonder if they grow over here? xx

    The least words but the post so powerful. The pictures do indeed tell the story of wonder and discovery, never ending. The new(?) found passion for life is indeed, actually, inspiring.
