365 Project – May

Bit of a mixed month was May! Not many spring days and I had a rough time with my medication…but…we got a new kitten called Able (read all about him here). You can see the individual pictures here.


In this heart

In this heart lies for you
A lark born only for you
Who sings only to you
My love
