OFTEN IT IS THE SMALLEST THINGS THAT CAN GIVE THE MOST INTENSE PLEASURE
By the back door a seedling Cape Gooseberry appeared in the tub of Italian parsley. I never got around to weeding it out and it continued to grow its long lanky arms. Now, here it is winter and I just wait for the day the next fruit will be ripe. The burst of intense flavour in the mouth is just about too much for the mind to absorb or comprehend.
And the 4 week old twin granddaughters give a continuing intense pleasure all of their own. So much perfection in such a small package! I continue to be amazed. And then, later again,
there is the other moment of magic when the two girls are asleep at the same time. Emily is on the left and Isla is on the right.
