Thoughtful Friday


"How to be happy when you are miserable. Plant Japanese poppies with cornflowers and mignonette, and bed out the petunias among the sweet-peas so that they shall scent each other. See the sweet-peas coming up.
Drink very good tea out of a thin Worcester cup of a colour between apricot and pink....."
Rumer Godden
(I know the picture is a lilly and not any of the flowers mentioned but as I didn't have any photos of poppies, sweet peas, cornflowers or mignonette I thought the lilly was just as much a tonic!)
