My flower beds are still in such disarray......rain, unseasonably cool weather, storms.....and then there are those nasty little treatments every 28 days.......but I am getting there.
Last year, I didn't have enough energy to even think about my flowers, but they hung on. This year is better, I/we still have a long way to go, but that is ok.
I love foxgloves (that is the big spike of white flowers). My mother grew them, so did my grandmother. This plant is from seeds that came from my mom's garden. There is really no smell, but I love their beauty, and their size......they make a statement.
I have washed yoga mats, worked in the flowers, and picked blueberries......a little sunburned.....a lot tired. It has been a great way to spend a Saturday. As much as I love performing, a Saturday to do stuff, is needed as well. We all need days to do our "stuff"......it is the ordinary that keeps us grounded, it is the ordinary that makes us appreciate the magical, it is the ordinary that glues the moments to our memories. I wish you all an ordinary day this weekend, a day to do your stuff.......then take a moment to appreciate the magical.
