Sun and flowers and smiles

Location:
Walking to the station from home

I saw:
There is an exceptionally beautiful and loved garden in my street. These past few days I noticed the sun flowers are in full bloom. And they stand just in of a huge trunk of which the branches have been cut off. It looks like a rustic country house setting and it always makes me smile.

Location:
On the tube

I saw:
I was running for the train, I heard that *beep beep* noise so I knew the doors were about to close. I prayed I would make it. As I ran in, another passenger at the door put his hands there so it wont close as I rushed in. Quite nice of him really. I hope he heard my mumbled thanks - I was a bit out of breath. Then there was a guy and his lil son standing next to me. You could see he was a good father and loved being with his son. He was crouched down so he was able to chat to his son. Someone else actually got up to offer the father and son their seat. Now that is really really nice. These two gesures of kindness already made my weekend.

Dennis liked that father and son moment, and sunflowers too.

it's nice when people crouch down or get down on the floor, rather than picking you up all of the time.

Dennis needs your input.

Lovely descriptions! There is so much love and kindness in this world, if only we would notice/ share it.

It always warms my heart to see or hear of the kindness others show. Makes me think that there really is hope for this world after all.

Sunflowers are a spirit lifter aren't they.

This is the time of sunflowers alright, and I too have noticed a lot of extra kindness out there.
