Aconite-Middle of December 2015
I always find this time of year extremely difficult, having developed a business where sales of the product manufactured are at their lowest, where days are cloudy and murky, and the sun has not been seen for over a week, I often decide to walk around the garden and today the effect was dramatic. Beyond the flowering cherry, the mahonia with its amazing perfume, there in all its glory, one solitary vivid yellow aconite proclaimed a new season of growth and renewed hope, the date was the 12th of December and I realised from today the evenings get lighter and the mornings continue to get darker till the 30th of December. The winter solstice occurs on the 21st December and this anomaly is due to the slightly oval shaped orbit of the earth around the sun, as well as the tilt of the earth. These thoughts made me realise we should always trust and that all shall be
well and all manner of things shall be well, in other words
Always look on the bright side of life.
