I like many people I see lots of memes on social media these days. One in particular struck me as very pertinent at the beginning of this year.
Two people are chatting whilst one of them is gardening. The watcher asks why the gardener is so optimistic about 2017. What do they think it will bring? The gardener replies that they are expecting it to bring flowers. “But why” the watcher asks. “Because I’m planting flowers.” the gardener replies.
Now I’m not being too literal here, but it gave me a prod to go out and plant flowers, of whatever type, rather than sit back and worry about what 2017 will bring.
