The letter for today is: W, where I feature winsome and walnut.
On an English summer's day, bees buzz amongst the blue rosemary flowers. The herbal scent rises into the still, hot air. I glance at my daughter, visiting from Australia. A winsome expression crosses her face and her eyes focus on something out of my sight.
"What are you thinking about, darling?"
"The beach at Noosa Heads." The engaging look on her face takes me back to the green headland jutting into the blue ocean.
On the opposite end of the scale, the hard shell around the brain-shaped walnut takes immense effort to crack.
Yet, underneath both a winsome expression and a hard walnut shell lies a soft center worth cracking.
