Flowers…

28 Jul

I love this time of year.  So many beautiful flowers are in bloom and there’s a feeling of life and hope in the air.  As I mentioned before, maintaining my yard is a full-time job but I get so much satisfaction being outside planting, watering, pruning…  It was in the ’80s today so I waited until early evening to go outside and do some weeding and watering.  I could have stayed out there for several more hours but the sun was going down and, well frankly my Angel game was already in the 3rd inning.  A girl’s got to have her priorities in check, right?

Flowers seem to come in every possible shape, color and scent.  There are beautiful ones for every season and depending on where you live you can enjoy lush gardens all year long.

Right now I have several things I’d like to plant.  I tried agapanthus once and it didn’t make it.  I’d like to think it was the location, not my brown thumb.  I’m really anxious to try it again.  I have the perfect spot for it.  I’m a big fan of the purple variety but I’d like to plant the white as well.   I have a big area in the front yard that’s mostly shade and it needs quite a bit of filling in.  It’s just screaming for the lovely purple and white flowers.  When I plant them, I’ll post pictures.

My yard is also filled with fun statues, birdhouses and other goofy decorative stuff.  I’ll do a post soon with more of them another time, but here’s a couple for now… stay tuned for more.

As I leave you tonight, I’ll give you the same advice I give all the living things in my yard, “Bloom where you are planted”.
