The buds on my huge tree will be out any day. They're nearly there. I'm excited about watching my Clematis and lobelias flower, even though all I did was put the lobelias in the earth, and plonk the Clematis under the hedge in its pot, and twine a couple tendrils round the fence. Still. It's not dead! It's going to flower again! Perhaps one day it will coat a swathe of the fence with a carpet of its flowers and leaves.

I would love to do a meditation whereby I sat and watched a bud go from closed green pod to fully blooming flower. Somehow, that seems like it would be a worthwhile thing to do. To watch something so magical and natural happening, with complete attention and presence.

Instead of staring at facebook, like.

It's very wet here though, so I can't really see myself achieving that. But I like the idea.

I don't think I could sit that long but it's a lovely idea.
