On Thursday, I put the last edits in on my thesis, pushed the submit button, and finished my Exec MBA. (Hooray!) I called Doug and said “I’m finished!” After the appropriate cheering and such, Doug said “OK. What do you want to do now?” I thought for a minute and said “Go see the bluebells!”
Bluebells are beautiful wildflowers that carpet parts of England for a few precious weeks each spring. If you blink, you may miss them. That would be a shame. The best part of living in this corner of the world is going for a walk through the bluebell woods in the spring. Below you can see a patch of bluebells in the distance; see the hints of purple?
And here they are up close. I love this photo, which shows that in every crowd there is a non-conformist:
We went to see them at Grey’s Court, a National Trust property near our home, that has the most spectacular gardens. I love this little peak of the flowering trees on the other side of the wall.
It’s been a very busy 30 months, full of hard work and total craziness, not to mention a career change mid-way through, but I must say I loved (nearly) every minute of it!
Whatever will I do now with all of my spare time?
