You can't imagine how excited I was to see this lovely couple ahead of me. Finally someone I may be able to pass.
Here I go just whipping past this couple. I was feeling quite chuffed with myself. LOL. This lovely lady then has the nerve to reach into her purse to give me a piece of paper and I am thinking "oh man seriously even on a walk". How can someone have the nerve to stop me when I am finally able to whip past them. Well as I was feeling quite magnanimous on this beautiful morning especially to find someone who was walking slower than me. What a surprise. You know that saying "stop and smell the roses", "enjoy the little things" this was one of those moments. I just had the pleasure to meet Dierdre and David Tomlinson of Merlin's Hollow Aurora.
Merlin's Hollow is a 3/4 acre garden in the middle of Aurora started in 1981 (35 years ago). It is a true English flower garden and every year this couple opens up the garden on 3 Saturdays and 1 Sunday for everyone to come and enjoy. (free of charge too). When I first moved to Aurora the streets were lined on these dates with people going to enjoy a little oasis of peace in the centre of Aurora. Below is their flyer, they would love to have you pop in.
Today I am thankful for taking the time to stop and listen to a couple who are still feeding their passion.
