One of the things I've always wanted came true this weekend....a yard. Yes..silly little thing to most people but I've always wanted a yard where I can sit and watch my flowers grow. Today we did yard work and though it has a way to go, it was a beautiful start and a gorgeous day.
I bought phlox, pincushions, salvia, mini carnations (I forget their "real" name) and vinca. I also bought several others that I can't remember their name. Of course I overbought so I will have to buy a new planter to finish planting tomorrow. I also bought herbs...I've never had an herb garden before. I bought lavender, basil, marjoram, thyme and parsley. A small start. I want some pineapple sage but I think I will have to find a specialty place for that one.
it will look better when it fills in and blooms
Strawberries were gloriously red at the market so I had some for breakfast along with a fat red pear. I thought it was a fitting breakfast for the first Saturday of spring.
Now it's evening and I'm looking out of my glorious window. The golden sunlight is hitting the lime colored leaves of the chinaberry tree and squirrels are scampering up and down the trunk. The world seems peaceful and perfect. And though I know it's not perfect everywhere, it leaves me serene and blissful just to sit here and stare. I haven't had many words of wisdom lately and I wish I could pull something profound of my head now....but, maybe this is what it is for now. And I find myself alright with that. There is not a cloud in the sky and maybe that's an indicator for no clouds on my immediate horizon.
