I Smile

Yes, I smile as I read something my daughter sent to me on this 5 degree morning in the country.

I changed the words

" All I ever wanted to do was build an insignificant small home by the woods on my country
property, fill it with my favorite things and surround it with gardens."

I did succeed and now the problem of upkeep - but will do it.... and still want more flowers :)

Love all your pics today.

Oh, my goodness! How useful the memories and anticipation of springs past and future prove to be in the chill and doldrumss of winter!

We all have dreams and you were persistent and lucky enough to fulfill yours! Be patient with what you can do, and respect if your world shrinks a little.

I read your comments and thanks to each of you.
Yes, my world is shrinking
but when I sit and type away on the computer it seems the same
and I plan all I am going to do
until I get up and walking is difficult :)

What lovely pictures from your gardens. You did what you wanted to do and that's great!

Are you getting snow this weekend? Be warm, stay safe.

Love & hugs ~ FlowerLady

Is the last picture a daylily? I've never seen the color or the 'curliness.' Do you by any chance know its name?

Carolyn Marie said...

Lovely photos. I too will always want more flowers!

Nan, many have shared plants with me
and so sorry
do not know where this came from
a gift when I started this garden.
Think it is a double day lilly

Beautiful pictures of the flowers; they bring hope. We were also at about 5* this morning after waking up to snow yesterday. Brr-rr!!! The wood furnace just can't heat us up past the low 60s, but thankfully we have a gas heater in one room.

You lift my heart, you do.


Nan said...

Judy said...
