Happy Valentine’s Day

Valentine picnicYesterday I went with friends to the Rhododendron Gardens in Blackheath. As we were parking the car, a young man, one of a small group, called out to us, “If you come across a picnic near the pond, it’s there for a reason.”

It turns out they had set it up for a friend who intended to take his girlfriend there to propose.

We walked round the gardens and an hour or so later came across the scene – set up and ready. Around the corner we looked across the pond and saw a young couple in a passionate embrace. When we walked on, we heard a squeal of delight.

I’m guessing her answer was, “Yes!”

Happy Valentine’s Day.

And if you haven’t already received a Valentine’s, here’s one specially for you.
