Simple pleasures bring real delight

The mother duck and one of her brood in Merchant Adventurers’ Hall gardens

First published in Letters by

THANK YOU to The Press for telling us about Mummy Duck and her latest offspring in the Merchant Adventurer’s beautiful garden.

I found the cuties – all together cuddled up in Mother Nature’s feather quilt. What a glorious sight! Then off to witness the baptism outside the Minster – those brave people declaring their love for Jesus in front of all those strangers.

And – last, but not least – what a pleasure to admire another mum’s babies at St Michael le Belfrey – two spring lambs constantly visiting Mum for a ‘top-up’.

And to the farmer who so enthusiastically shared his passion for his livestock with us – a great big thank-you to him, too.

It’s true what they say: the best things in life are FREE.

Absolutely. What a lovely letter. We get so caught up in our busy 24/7 lives, or lost in thought, its nice to sometimes just.......stand and stare. We moan about what we are doing to the planet, but my, is it still very beautiful. Have a go today or tomorrow and feel that benefit!
