Loofah yellow

Day 3: smidgins of joy

Smidgins of joy are painted on the petals of flowers.

It’s flowering! I skipped towards the loofah vine as soon as I spotted the pale yellow expression of glory. I will admit to a smidgin of joy when I realised that I am still capable of breaking into a spontaneous skip.

Loofah flower

I was up early and eager to work. A smidgin of ecstasy, that.
