Daylilies, May 2012
one minute a feeling of accomplishment
and then a feeling of being in first grade again
or perhaps a little older
beginning again at the same place
where something needed to be set aside
for a time
Looking back, I took a few photos for the blog a few years ago as well. This past Monday, I had returned home from a dentist appointment, and I should be fine until the next check-up in six months. The rain had made the air so fresh, and the garden was so lovely.
Simple joys and gratitude. The gardens mostly take care of themselves now.
This is a favorite poem from my archives:
reading . . . rereading
poetry in many forms
all the perennials
