Daily Prompt: SUDDENLY SPRING!

SUDDENLY SPRING!

JUST KIDDING!

Few weeks to go yet.

Summer Garden 2014

I’ve had this Hydrangea shrub for many years.  I admit to having transplanted it several times due to the shade that keeps appearing every couple of years.  Some caused by my trees and shrubs sprouting up in the vicinity and once due to a neighbor planting several very large privacy shrubs near his fence line.  Making up for lost time, it not only decided to bloom all the colors of the rainbow on one shrub.  Nice feat when you consider that the Hydrangea’s color is determined by the PH balance of its soil.

Garden Tour

I love the way gardens look in late spring.  When everything has greened and awakened.  If you love blooms, you can check out some of my links and research the bloom times of your favorite plants and plant accordingly to be assured you will always have garden flowers.  Most of mine are for foliage because I love being surrounded with green and I am stuck with mostly shade so I have learned to adjust from poppies and roses to hostas and ferns.

I hope you enjoy the garden tour.  Come back anytime.

Have a safe and blessed Memorial Day!

Daily Prompt: If I Ruled the World!

I’m reminded of the line in the Wizard of Oz “If I were king of the foreeessstttt!”                                                “Not Prince, not Duke, not Earl!”

Just the thought of it makes me feel all puffed up and arrogant.

The law of nature I would change is to take away everyone’s ego so they don’t feel like I just said this line from a song makes me feel.

No one wanting to be better or have more.  No one letting their egos get in the way of anything so people would actually get along, we would have no wars, no contests, etc.

Life would be lived for the sake of life, not the sake of what we want others to think of us or what we want to gain.
