I Love Stocks.....



Early morning today to get Mitchell off to work.  The markets were just opening at 6 a.m. as I headed home.


I found a dear old man selling his Stocks this morning.  He told me of his garden that was once a Carnival Garden and of his new garden where he cultivates these beautiful double stocks.


He asked me if I had time to stop and talk, when I said yes, he went into his vehicle and brought out pictures of how his garden had been.  I'm glad I took the time to talk with this lovely old man.

They smell divine...........................

How lovely Leisa - stocks epitomise the fragrance of spring. So do sweet peas. Just so....mmm - springy!
How lovely too, that you took the time to encourage this gentleman by listening and showing interest in his garden. So many people don't make time to stop and really listen with their hearts.
