And then, this happens.

We took Small to the park this afternoon, quite late on as Big had volunteered to buy us dinner in Nando's so we went to get some air before eating.

The duck pond  Ornamental Lake has water lilies and they're in bloom at the moment. It's really quite difficult to describe how beautiful I find water lily flowers, especially floating on mirror-still water in the late afternoon when everyone is heading off home and things are tranquil. Well, as tranquil as anywhere that includes Small can be.
Nature is not nice, it's not kind, it's not just, it's not transcendent. It's just sometimes, in rather unassuming ways, quite beautiful.
