The temps will soar today to 80 so getting out quickly to make the remaining boxes to be added to my garden so when I shop at Friday and Sat. plant sales I will have a place to add all my beauties.
Do you grow your own food? I am so excited it has been three long years since we tilled the earth and dropped in a seed yes being organic is harder but what is the point of eating things not good for you.
I have spinach to go in as well as lettuce and swiss chard that are a month late along with peas due to all the frosts and freezes we had. I will not complain about working out with black flies to get it in now as so many places right now have it so bad with our world’s weather.
After the work is complete today I will try to scrub my filthy hands and pop into the Seacoast Artist Association for a class Doris Rice is having on spring blossoms as the sit on branches. I will take a Forsythia branch as well as a branch section with just opening Apple Blossoms on it and maybe a Lilac too, it should be fun last week it was beach with small shoreline birds. I do love Watercolor and I will sleep like a baby after working hard all day with my boyfriend and then painting always drains me but in a good way.
Stay safe out there and find something you love doing and make time for YOU I love this new me 🙂

Oh yes Eunice. I love the arrival of spring so that I can visit the garden centres to buy new plants for our garden. I do not plant vegetables though because I can’t stand the thought of the cock roaches having been around them. Flowers and new shrubs yes. I am so pleased you sound happy Eunice, you have had a long struggle the past few years. Enjoy your life now. Hugs x
I must send you an email wait till you see what came in the mail today 🙂 cockroaches you have those too? Our apartment complexes and southern areas as well as cities have them but not at my single home they would die if they were here 🙂 You send me a photo and I will share how my garden grows 🙂
“You go girl!” You have the right approach. 🙂
Wonderful Eunice – you will have a fantastic garden! The class sounds awesome and I can only imagine what beautiful blossom paintings will emerge from your brush!! Can’t wait for you to share ~
What lovely things you do. And what a beautiful photo.
That is a very nice reflection!
Eating vegetables you grow yourself are the best things. You know what you put into it. And, I am sure it feels good from the results of your hard work too.
Wonderful! I love digging in the garden dirt, there’s something so peaceful about it.💐
🙂 I had shoulder surgery then Mom needed me so after 3 yrs and turning 60 I am feeling old at the end of the day but this will get me back into shape but you are right so zen like digging and planting or making rows for seed even watering them in it suits my nature as it does you now for the weather to be good Happy gardening!
Happy Gardening to you! It sounds Ike you’ve had a full plate, hope things slow down for you!😉
me too I am so tired
I planted to large lilac bushes this spring, that I had over wintered under my backyard deck.
They came from an organic farm and are simply delightful to have in my front yard, to me, a house is not a home without a lilac tree or bush. 🙂
Fantastic photo! It’s ethereal, just love it!
🙂 We are kindred spirits for sure are Lilacs just not the best beauty and scent 🙂
Yes, Lilacs smell like Heaven.
I’m still totally smitten by your photo! It looks like a Mandala, just gorgeous. 🙂
Thanks it is a big seller we seem to have company when it comes to lovely Lilacs 🙂
To the king
Of the universe
Who needs no capitalization
For he needs no praise nor adulation
Sustains all matter with the living life impulse
Is beauty itself
Is love itself
Is music itself
To the king
I took the liberty of finding your amazing photo via a search engine and found the URL, I wrote another poem to go with your fab pic:
Lilac mandala kaleidoscope
Gateway to the great mystery
Perhaps it’s all an illusion
Matter doesn’t exist without
A living life impulse sustaining
Reflections on mystical waters
There’s the confusion
The conventional reality
Resides within the ultimate
Although the two bear no resemblance
This is the great mystery
How can this be?
No one knows
Unmanifest leaves no footprints
Because it walks on water…
I love it thanks so much Genie
