Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.

Coming Up Poppies

Oh my Good Heaven's Gracious!!

I wish sometimes I had a digital camera.
I just went out in the front yard... since it is 5:50 am it is already light out... and one of the poppies has come out in a blaze of screaming scarlet color!!! Last night when I came inside it looked like a green apricot on a stick, and now there is a huge gorgeous flower bobbing in the breezes.

Add to that its neighbor, a white bearded iris which unfolded yesterday. Just gorgeous.

And my peonies are starting to show color on their buds as well. It is sooo exciting!

In the backyard the seeded grass is all coming in, except where the nice kitties decided the new topsoil was cat litter and dug it all up.

The strawberries are working overtime... I think I may actually be able to have a BOWL of strawberries at least once this year, instead of two per day popped into my mouth.

The lily of the valley is blooming...I took off one sprig to have on my desk in the house. mmmmm.

The ferns are just huge, and spreading. I really wish they'd stay so lovely, but i know that with wind, rain and catfights they will be broken and browning in a month or so.

Egads I love nature. I love gardening. I just love it.
Makes up for the blasted indoor plants that have scale insects once again and need spraying. All those amazing growing things that smell so good, and look so good and taste so good.


Now why didn't I buy five or ten huge poppy plants instead of one? Maybe I'll go tomorrow and buy another and in a year or two I'll have poppyfields forever, without even any rotting soldiers. hehe.

Just thought I'd make sure the entry wasn't TOOO saccharine!
