30 Days Wild – 4th June

Yes, I know I’ve missed day 3 but yesterday was horrible. The pain in my shoulder and arm was awful and I just couldn’t be bothered to do anything other than get through the day. It’s not as bad today thankfully. Looking out at the garden this evening I noticed a new flower had opened in our baskets, I’ve been waiting for it.
