I worked myself silly today but I did take a few minutes out to check what’s blooming. Do you ever plant so much stuff that every year you’re surprised at what comes up? The lilies and hydrangeas are stealing the show today. The knockout roses are preparing for their next violent explosion but most importantly, we fried the first squash of the year this week!
They neither toil, nor do they spin…Every year I’m amazed at what pops up in my yard though I know it’s coming.
Today was quite busy but that has become the norm. It’s good to come home to such a treat.
It has rained most of the day but somebody forgot to tell the lilies. They have bloomed without the least care.
Greek lore associates the lily with birth but depending on who you ask or what variety you have they symbolize both hope and death on the same stem.
We took a little detour today down highway 70. I was hoping for something pretty to photograph and I sure did find it. The geese I found weren’t to happy to see me though. They honked away trying to run me off but they don’t know me very well. Seriously? I’m standing in swampy land, with Lord only knows what kind of vermin climbing up my ankles…I aint leavin’. I did remember to put my camera down, turn to my Mother and completely freak her out with a “Oh, by the way…watch out for water moccasins.”
