Time to see the garden

We have a garden
Tomatoe plants

Red Marconi Pepper plants

... and lots of space that is just frought with potential

there are sunflowers, swiss chard, squash, watermelon, chamomile, rosemary, thyme, lavender, holly hocks, mints, hyssop, lemon balm, wormwood, and a bed of lettuce

You must use your imagination today because the above mentioned are hiding in the soil.

I water in the morning and then inspect in the evening. Tonight I closed down a compost bin that has been doing its thing for a year and the soil from the bin is rich black soil and ready for the potted geraniums that will arrive to the deck this weekend.

So much to do and so little time. Today Oldest granddaughter and I went shopping for the 8th grade graduation dance party dress. That brought back memories. Sitting and waiting outside the dressing room. Wow was it really 14 years ago that my youngest finished 8th grade? It was a successful event. Tomorrow underpinnings and Wednesday shoes and all will be well in the world.

In one of my travels I read that a day being sad is a wasted day because you can never fill it with happiness - you can never reclaim the hours spent either angry or sad and fill them with happiness and joy. That thought leads me to saying I am sorry and I apologize a lot sooner than I use to. I wasted many years in anger and sadness. No more I say no more. No time for that any more. I may be quiet and pensive but I am choosing to be a happier person and more content as each day passes.

Be well - treat each other with kindness and respect. Be the person you hope to become a little each day and see what happens. Keep trying new things. Keep believing in yourself. Think things through and see what could be the result and live and act accordingly. Be nice to each other and yourself. Smile a lot because it makes people wonder what you have been up to lately.

What beautiful plants! How happy you must be.
I have a salad bed and some pea vines; haven't bought any tomato plants yet. The weather's ready, but I'm not.
