Growing is in the air

Springtime – Seed time

Well I don’t know about you but this time of the year that gets my fingers itching – they just cannot wait to be in the soil, planting things. Whether it’s on the allotment, in a window box or taking a cutting from a house plant. Growing is in the air and I want to be part of it.

Imagine how it must be for someone with these primal longings when in a hospital ward or care environment. Their dreams and aspirations perhaps much like mine yet they are excluded from this miracle of greenness and growth.

We as carers, family members, lovers or children, can bring the outside in and make a huge difference to someone’s day – their week- their life. A truly heart-warming thing to do and very simple to execute.

In Leaves of Love, stories for ageing and dying well, there are lots of ideas to inspire you and give confidence; to make the unexpected happen. A wonderful gift to bring on a Spring day.
