Today the sun is shining on the rain and the rain is falling on the sunshine

“Is the spring coming?” she said. “What is it like?”…
“It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine…”
― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

Meet Penelope. She is a petite little thing. She likes to climb the mountains and get their good tidings.

She likes to play peekaboo and wink at me through the fork in the lemon scented gum. She maybe the centrepiece but it is the frame- the bark on the tree that reminds us “Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.”

Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. 

There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature – the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.” ― Rachel Carson, Silent Spring
