It’s been a gloomy summer.
In Greece, forest fires have ravaged the stunningly beautiful island of Euboea.
The refugee hot-spots are overflowing again.
People are in despair because more taxes have been announced for September. Many have not been on holiday, because they cannot afford it.
Elsewhere – another day, another atrocity. I dread seeing the news each morning.
To say nothing of the depressing spectacle of the US presidential campaign.
So it’s good to have the comfort of small, daily pleasures. Most of which are connected with nature.
