With nearly 5,000 acres of parkland within the greater metro area, London is considered one of the world’s greenest capitals. Although Regent’s Park (highlighted last Tuesday) is the largest of Central London’s five “Royal Parks,” Kensington Gardens and adjacent Hyde Park, St. James’ Park, and Green Park are all within easy walking distance of Buckingham Palace, and they’re the perfect place for a refreshing stroll! Instead of telling you more “facts” about London’s gardens, I thought it might be fun to share some of my favorite London flower photos coupled with a few words of wisdom passed on the me from my daughter-in-law’s Irish mother, Sarah, via Linda’s Australian aunt, Dorthea. 🙂 Giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they’ll love you back!
Don’t expect love in return;
Just wait for it to grow in their heart,
But if it doesn’t, be content it grew in yours.May you have
Enough happiness to make you sweet,
Enough trials to make you strong,
Enough sorrow to keep you human,
And enough hope to make you happy.Always put yourself in the other person’s shoes. If what you feel hurts you, it probably hurts the other person too. Bless others, don’t hurt them.
The happiest of people
Don’t necessarily have the best of everything;
They just make the most of everything that comes along their way.
When you were born, you were crying
And everyone around you was smiling.
Live your life so that when you die,
You’re the one who is smiling
And everyone around you is crying.It’s true that we often don’t appreciate what we have until it’s gone,
but it’s also true that we don’t know what we’ve been missing until it arrives.
Don’t go for looks; they can deceive.
Don’t go for wealth; even that fades away.
Go for someone whose life radiates love and joy,
Because their smile will make
Even dark days seem bright.
Find the one who makes your heart smile! Please share this message with
Those people who bring love and joy to you,
Those who have touched your life in a special way,
Those who make you smile when you really need it,
Those who help you see the brighter side of things when you are really down,
Those whose friendship is especially precious to you.
And if you don’t, don’t worry,
Nothing bad will happen to you,
You will just miss out on the opportunity
to brighten someone’s life with this message.“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace…” (Galatians 5:22)
