Sometimes I wonder about having a garden
at the edge of the woods in damp soil.
Really not the ideal location, but all that is available.
Sometimes everything grows and blooms so beautifully
and other times I find it overwhelming with problems.
A number of days of rain
but just enough that I do not view the beauty of recent weeks
Late afternoon I head out in the humidity
just to work a short time.
Do not feel up to it
but maybe it will help me working with nature.
Some iris and day lilies are cut back.
A few spots of poison ivy are still being attended to
and could not take steroid for it like in the past
because I am still on low dose of prednisone.
Might have shared this not long ago.
Oh my, is that you dreaded plant in a clump of iris
Quite a lot in a little over 45 minutes is cut back
Sweating, dirty clothes, need to bathe and fix something light for evening meal. Really not hungry
and reminded that when I come off months of medication it truly bothers me in many ways including
emotions and hopefully I sleep tonight.
So many thoughts surface and as I glance to the side before going inside, I smile as I still
see beauty in these simple surroundings and I know in my heart "I am home."
