heart leaves...

All around us are hearts a plenty. Many tropical plants have heart-shaped leaves and today we especially notice them. When we began building our house Wally would bring me heart rocks. We have them in all sizes with the largest too large for me to lift. That one is painted red violet with sparkles of gold coming through. Some of them have become markers on the graves of our animal family. Some decorate our living space on window ledges and around the bath tub, and in the walkways of our farm. The natural world is full of valentines!

Today we are going to celebrate. We begin the day with our routine of sharing a cup of tea, a bowl of papaya and toasted bread. We part with kisses to do our morning chores with the plan of meeting to go off into the day for some togetherness away from the farm.
