I read these words and they are so true for this one.
My children and grandchildren
are a gift to this one.
The precious jewels of my life....
I do not like to pick my flowers
but this peony is special.
Special because it was in a neighbors yard
that adjoined my yard. He had lost his wife
and I would listen to him continually as he shared
bits and pieces of his life. He needed someone to
listen and in a way felt special because he felt
free to share with me. After he passed away I asked
his daughter inlaw if I could have a piece of this plant.
She said yes and it has thrived
"Polly thank you."
Most of the plants in my garden bring about memories
of special people who are no longer on this earth.
They have been moved from garden to garden at
different homes during my lifetime...
Along with a few iris, put in a small vase
and put by my plate.
in the morning.
Too hot at the moment
with temperature hovering around 90 degrees.
and a cucumber plant for this simple gardening project.
Remember many years ago planting a no till garden.
I have started a number of vegetables in pots - which are doing well and
now will try this method for a few more plants.
No weeding, tilling and hope it works.
Mike, thank you for giving me the straw bales
even though I offered to buy them :)
