Every Spring I Am Reminded That . . .

March 16, 2014

. . . the beautiful vegetation in and around my garden are most likely a distant collection of God’s Garden of Eden. How special is that?

A Walk after the Rain

February 10, 2014

I treaded lightly over shallow pools of water and soggy leaves,

and this is what I saw.

A pair of forgotten clippers . . .

Mood-Changer: vibrant flowers

November 9, 2011

Flowers bring cheer to dull landscapes, gloomy rooms, and grey days like nothing else. A modest pot of vibrant blossoms is all it takes to make an impact. Set against an ordinary lawn and shrub in and around the garden, on a patio, front porch or indoors is an instant mood changer.

Even when the sun doesn’t shine, it’s difficult to be anything but cheery while looking at these brilliant flowers through my westerly windows. Except for the zinnias which I’ve enjoyed all summer, waiting for the mums and azaleas to bloom was well forth the anticipation.
