About the kindness...


I was on my way home a fortnight ago, 


and, as usual, I passed next to of the nice garden which I have already used  once as a background for my photos


The garden was especially beautiful because it was full of flowers  


Of course, to keep a garden in orden requires a lot of work, and in fact there was a lady who was taking care of the roses


I stopped for a moment admiring the garden, so the woman offered me a bunch of those flowers...


at home I thought that the kindness makes this world a better place where to live!



( by the way, it has been quite chilly recently here and I have restyled the asimmetrycal dress I wore some weeks ago )

  1. This dress look so pretty with the sweater and the sandals. It's been cool here in my part of the US this summer also. How nice to receive fresh flowers. Kindness does matter!

    1. Thanks Dana, a belt worn over a sweater gives the outfit a special style. Doesn't it?

  7. I love fresh flowers, I would have been thrilled too! I just had my husband pick a bloom off our hydrangea over the weekend so we could enjoy it indoors as well. And before I forget--I love the belt!

  17. This is so nice of the lady, the owner of the garden. The flowers are beautiful. At one side I wish I had a garden, but at the other side, I know it's a lot of work.
