May 20th

“Once you choose hope, anything's possible.”
Christopher Reeve (1952-2004),actor, producer, director, and writer;
best known for his role as Superman.
Every year our village holds a best kept garden competition,
every front garden in the village is judged!
For the 11 years it has been held,
my front garden as always come
in the top 10 but never won.
So this year I am hoping that giving it some
extra food will help. lol

Good Luck in the competition. Very inspiring quote as usual. Sometimes the words of others can make you feel quite humble.
