Surprise Visitor.

Today at work I had a surprise visitor, Helen one of the many RHS Volunteers, who I have come to call my friend through her very frequent attendance on the many walks I have led at RHS Wisley Gardens over the last 13 years together with my colleague David. Word has got out that both David and I will shortly be saying farewell to our current jobs and moving on to pastures new. Helen dropped in for a chat with us both and handed me an envelope which contained this card.
Inside were these words:
MAY YOU ALWAYS HAVE
LOVE TO SHARE
HEALTH TO SPARE
AND FRIENDS THAT CARE
With love from Helen and Kay.

While I know both David and I will miss the enjoyment and friendship we have both gained while showing visitors the local avian wildlife I am hopeful that I will meet up with Helen and Kay in the not too distant future and enjoy a stroll together in the gardens we all love so much. FAB.

  1. A lovely card for sure..leaving a job is definitely a time for so many mixed emotions and can even be a little scary but it's nice you have such a nice hobby to keep you busy while you find a new pasture...might you be retiring? If so congrats!

  3. Hi Frank,
    This is a very nice gift. I guess you were more than happy. friendship is unique and when it is turning around common passion such as walking and birding, it is very precious.
