When Mother paid a visit in February she came bearing gifts. Mostly wine, but this little cutie made it's way to me from Newcastle. It's a message bean, which comes in a tin can. All I had to do was peel off the lid and add small doses of water every now and then. The cutest little bean eventually surfaced and then split in half to reveal tiny leaves that have grown to a suprising size. It's a lovely reminder of my Mam and how much she loves me. Like no other.
Love you too, Mam.
