A wildflower posy gathered from the hedgerows along our road. A little posy for our eldest to bring to church to celebrate his First Holy Communion last Sunday. Despite not being especially religious, we had a lovely family gathering to celebrate another milestone in our little man's life.
Gathering these flowers will be ingrained forever in my memory. Eight o'clock in the morning, dressed in pyjamas, raincoat and wellies, as the rain poured down. I must have looked like I had lost the plot. But I loved picking each pretty bloom. I really hope the neighbours were having a lie in.
