Happy Valentine’s Day!

Whatever you are doing, either with loved ones or not, I hope it’s a lovely day for you.


Smile at a stranger – they’ll smile back, guaranteed!

Wave at someone you have never seen before, and I bet they’ll wave back!

And if something makes you happy, Laugh Out Loud – it’s good for you (and it’s catching too)!


β€œMay flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day…”

(from an old Irish blessing)

Love, Cathy xxx

  1. Beautiful flowers Cathy!!! Happy Valentine’s Day to you and yours! Because of all the snow our roads are not passable so we are not celebrating Valentine’s until Saturday! We are going to try a new local restaurant.

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

  2. Happy Valentine`s Day to you, Cathy, …and “May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day…”. What a beautiful Irish blessing!
    Love, Elisabeth

    • Thanks Annette. We had some lovely sunshine for most of the day, and the birds have been so happy and noisy chirping away as if spring is not far off. Maybe they know it’s Valentine’s Day too!

  3. I often find myself smiling and waving at strangers… usually because I forget to put my contact lenses in. The kids say, “Who is that?” I tell them and they explain that it isn’t the person I thought it was. You are right, though. The strangers always smile and wave back.

    Happy Valentines Day.

    • I often do too, since I don’t know many villagers “close up” I wave just in case they are locals…. we have a lot of tourists here in the summer, so they must wonder who’s waving and grinning at them as I drive past! πŸ˜‰

  4. Lovely post! I think I might not wave at a stranger as they might think me a little mad – especially as I run away quickly to hide my own embarrassment πŸ˜‰ – but smilling at them wouldn’t be so extreme.
    Beautiful pictures and I love the Irish quote.

    • I think you should try the wave thing… if it ever happens to me I don’t think they are mad, but that I must know them from somewhere, and it gets me thinking about it all day! πŸ˜‰

  5. Look at that pink colour. Amazing. So try about smiling at strangers. Non weird looking ones I suppose because I would not dare smile at the ones that talk to themselves outside London Underground stations!

    • Thanks Andrea! As I don’t know the name of that peony I should name it after the lady who gave it to me… Eva. πŸ˜‰ Several years ago she gave me several tubers of white and pink peonies which i divided and planted in various positions… and all have thrived!
