It is good to let some Sunshine into our lives, to open the doors, open the windows around the house to let the Sunshine in sometimes. Not of course in the heat of the Summer when we need to keep the house cool. The flowers in the photo above look so lovely and fresh.
Maybe bring some yellow flowers indoors sometimes as a reminder of the Sunshine….it is surprising how they can lift the spirit just to have them in a vase on the table or somewhere where you can see them as you walk past during the day.
Here is a Recipe for today as it is our Avocado Season I thought you may like this simple way to use some of them:
Avocado on Toast
Slice Ripe Carnarvon Avocado onto Toast,sprinkle with Vinegar and Pepper.
Very nice for lunch with Salad or on it’s own.
So we can let a bit of Sunshine into our lives by cooking something nice for our everyday meals. Experiment with something new for ourselves or our family and friends. We can let the Sunshine come into our hearts by doing something nice for others.
Romans: 1 verse 16 says: For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ.
So we need not be ashamed to bless others with our cooking or by just giving them a small posy of Flowers. In that way a little Sunshine comes into our lives and into theirs.
I hope you have a lovely day today and let a little Sunshine into your life.

Here is a photo of one of my latest Baskets of Flowers hope you like it.
The Flowers are real and artificial – the real ones are Geraldton Wax and Lantana with some Palm Leaves at the back, the Roses are the Artificial Flowers but they make the arrangement look very real.
So you can easily make a Basket of Flowers by choosing a nice Basket (not too large) then use some (Wet Oasis) in a plastic bag – so that water does not come into your basket. If you do not have any Wet Oasis the use a suitable vase to hold water that will fit into your basket.
Arrange your Flowers with some tall leaves at the back (no need for Palm Leaves) some nice ones from a hedge or young branches from a tree will be great. Then next put the tallest flowers in so that you have a nice background and build up with the smaller ones coming to the front.
Sometimes if you have not got enough flowers put some artificial ones in to make a nice show.
There you are then…..that could be a nice project for yourself as a table arrangement or to give as a gift to a friend for a special occasion.
