To be an impromptu tour guide is an inevitable role when a friend comes from abroad to visit. I was playing that role for my friend earlier this week. I think it is good for us, who live in the visited town, to embrace this role every now and then. I went to places I haven’t been before even after all these years (I thought the inside of the Old Parliament House was quite interesting).
At the Cockington Green Garden, by now a very familiar place for me, I’ve noticed these beautiful flower bush that I’ve never noticed there before. I don’t know what their names are but I think they are quite lovely in their colours and beautiful long stems. It’s totally about looking at familiar things with new eyes for me, it’s brilliant!
