Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined. Henry David Thoreau

the flower stalker

I went to look at the rows and rows of flowers that have just arrived at WalMart this week.

The sun was shining and they were calling to me.  My hands were itching to get into some warm dirt.

I can't get enough of the colors.  

I don't really miss the old house, but I would like to sneak out there and check the flower beds. 
I just want to peek around and see if my babies made it through the winter.  I want to see that they have doubled in size and are off to a good start.  I want to smell the iris and clean the leaves out of the beds.  I want to straighten the rocks and pull the weeds.  OK, that last part was nuts.  But hey, I am nuts!

Tomorrow it is going to rain again.  I am ready.  I don't care because I got my sunshine fix today.  

And I remember the flowers.

  1. it's just not possible that the new owners aren't enjoying all the hard work you put into those plantings. just think of it as a really amazing gift!


"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense." Ralph Waldo Emerson
