Incredible News! 45% of funding raised!
Greetings wonderful supporters!
I had begun to think there was no end to the rampages of my mind – updates and insta, emails and tweets. An endless merry go round of ideas and things to be done. A life on hold to funding deadlines – yet despite that, we seemed somewhat stuck.

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.

Best Easter Egg Ever – much better than chocolate!
After a slow start, the Easter holidays have been a fruitful time for the Leaves of Love Crowdfunding.
You, my wonderful supporters have got us up to 33%. This is just so exciting! Thank you. Especially to those not known to me and who believe in the book itself – this gives me the courage and energy to push on over the coming weeks.

As Winter moves on and Spring moves in, it is a cause for celebration!
Birds wake us from sleep and at last we can sit outside in the warm sun and drink coffee with friends.
This time can however be doubly frustrating for those who are in a care or hospital environment, removed from the natural world. Perhaps they can witness the burgeoning green haze from their room, but also, perhaps not.
Taking the outside in is very simple. A posy of primroses, some fragrant lawn mowings in a bag, a fallen birds next or little chicks in a box. What a joy this can be – a jubilant moment to share and treasure.
Its important not to underestimate the value of these small thoughtful gestures. What is everyday and ordinary for us can be a delight for someone whose life has become restricted.
For more ideas, please pledge to my Crowdfunding page and support the publication of my book, Leaves of Love, stories for ageing and dying well.
