Ms. Mandy

I have posted pictures of her before, but just like the zinnias she is going out in a blaze of beauty.
Ms. Mandy as we call her has been a haven for humming birds and bees this summer.  Her blooms just get bigger and more prolific each week.  I know she will fade in a few weeks so I wanted you to see her in all her pinkness one more time.

Hope you have enjoyed your Labor Day.  I am grateful for the unions and workers who have bettered working conditions and pay in this country.  We still have a ways to go in wages, glass ceilings and benefits but I think of my dad who worked in the coal mines for 25 cents a day ( no error, twenty five cents a day) and am thankful that he and so many others fought the fight and stood up to corporations and their greed and demanded decent pay.

Spread some kindness, and a little joy where ever you are.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams

  1. Mandy is still beautiful. I like your comment about Labor Day. Too many do not know why we celebrate it.
