After many years and many houses, I have been blessed with the
backyard of my dreams. A densely wooded property with water,
ornamental trees, a greenhouse, established beds full of fragrant
roses and perennials. Like a kaleidoscope of colors, the iris, phlox
azaleas, daffodils, hydrangeas, clematis, larkspur, morning glory
and hollyhocks compete in complementary contrast. Ever changing
and taking turns to show off whose the prettiest. This week it’s
the larkspurs turn and the morning glories and clematis echoing
their brilliant blue. Just in time to cheer on the blue and white
Wildcats, who started spring football this week:) God is good!
I haven’t always had such a place but I’ve always tried. Whether
it was a few flowers mixed with herbs in a clay pot or beds all the
way around the house, I love planting things and watching them
grow! So where ever you live, you too can enjoy a slice of nature.
Look around, ask questions…experiment. Don’t be shy. Just
plant something, hide and watch….and don’t forget to water:)
My cup runneth over!
