Late May Sunday.

Today the weather has offered a bit of everything; it was a gorgeous sunny morning with blue skies, but now heavy clouds have moved in from the west. However, I can see that blue skies are visible in the far west and soon the sun will return.

My back hedge is now in full bloom. That hedge is my pride and joy. Wen I moved into the house, it was pretty much just a few sticks growing up out of the ground. After 6 years it is the most beutiful hedge around. Particularly in late May, when it blooms with white flowers. Last year I could hear people passing it on the outside, not knowing I was out on my terrace. They stopped for a while to admire the hedge stating it was the most beautiful one they have ever seen. Such compliments are of the best kind.

I am taking this opportunity, while there is a lack of sun, to post yet another update on my ever so growing clematis.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful laid-back Sunday.

Hi Ms. Z!

"However, I think if you at all times trust your gut feeling, you will be fine. To be courageous and without fear doesn't at all always mean just "to do".:) Very often it means "to think" too.;)"

Thanks very much for that! I really needed to hear it.. I actually wasnt able to sleep last night because it was all I could think about.. and your comment really put me at ease. :-)

glad you found comfort in those words. It warms my heart that they put you to ease. I am so sorry that you have a troubled mind, if it is any consolation, we all feel this way at times.
You are very courageous in my eyes; brave enough to venture into a new profession without fear.
Hope you will have a wonderful week.;)
