I spotted a tweet earlier on this week, from a fabulous blogger called Elizabeth at Margot & Barbara about a new series she is starting called The Good Things.

The Good Things

The idea is a weekly post “celebrating the things that bring happiness”. Every week, there is a linky, over on Margot & Barbara where you can link up your own post, and check out the things that are making other people feel happy too.

What a fantastic idea!

So here’s mine.

Mottisfont Collage

Yesterday, SmallSmall and I went to Mottisfont, a National Trust property near Romsey, to meet up with my Auntie and my mum’s best friend.
You may remember that we planted a memorial Mulberry Tree there for my mum earlier on this year, and it was a chance to see how it was doing (leaning a little to the left, since you ask, but growing well!) and catch up.
Mottisfont is famous for it’s roses, and it’s walled garden. My pictures don’t do them justice, but they really are beautiful.

Although visiting Mottisfont and the tree will always be tinged with sadness, it really was happy day. And I could picture my mum spending hours walking around the gardens in the sunshine, taking time to look at the all the flowers, and then spending an inordinate amount of money in the Nursery…!

How about you?
What are your Good Things?
Fancy linking them up on Margot & Barbara, and seeing if we can spread some happiness…?!

  1. Hello, thank you so much for joining in! I hope that The Good Things will grow beautifully too. The roses are lovely and a mulberry tree is such a wonderful memorial. I have fond memories of one in a relative’s home when I was growing up, they’re a beautiful tree and rarer than they should be!
