LOVE BLOOMS

Love blooms unbidden smiling upon the world no word need be spoken for it to be understood. Love in full bloom bares its very soul without art nor adornment but love heeding love’s call.  Love loves with all of its breath as a flower blooms ’til the last petal’s spent. Then all the more theyContinue reading “LOVE BLOOMS”

HOME SWEET HOME

After two weeks of using a laptop, I am back to my desktop.  I am back home.  Yey! Vacation time is fun time, but there is no place like home.  I get to see in my usual computer the things that I have posted in the last two weeks. It was odd looking at themContinue reading “HOME SWEET HOME”

A (WET) ROSE PARADE

Yes.  I am using the preposition “A” instead of “The” because I am certain that more rose pictures will grace this pages in the near future, wet or not. 🙂  I like roses (who does not?) even when they are thorny and a little persnickity.  There are several of them in the yard  –  plantedContinue reading “A (WET) ROSE PARADE”

THE EVER A LADY BUG

Whoever named this bug a ladybug had absolutely no regard for the male (lady)bug’s feelings.  Oh no! None at all. 😉 Well, I am just chanelling the male ladybug from It’s a Bug’s Life.   It just ruined his credibility as a rough and tough bug goonie to be constantly referred to as ‘lady’. Anyway,Continue reading “THE EVER A LADY BUG”

PEONY BLUSH

Please pardon me if I go overboard with the peony pictures.   Peonies are just plain lovely and I like them a lot.  All flowers are beautiful but peonies are special because they are big yet  delicate;  they are showy; and they are fragrant.  Their only downside is that they bloom only once. As soonContinue reading “PEONY BLUSH”

TO THE TOMATO THAT GOT PLANTED BEFORE ITS TIME

I planted a tomato in the middle of April. My husband said “No. No.” It’s winter still. “You’re just being a contrarian,” went my usual reply. “Sun’s high, air’s warm, summer’s definitely nearby.” So into the ground, the tomato went enjoying good weather, defying husband’s sentiment. Then one April night, the temperatures fell. What happenedContinue reading “TO THE TOMATO THAT GOT PLANTED BEFORE ITS TIME”

A WALK IN THE GARDEN

The grass is soft under my feet. It is still wet with dew. The clematis has unfurled her colors and the Irises too. The daisies twinkle in the sun. The roses are flexing their might. The peonies show their blush. The lilies are cuddled tight. The robins and the sparrows fill the air with theirContinue reading “A WALK IN THE GARDEN”

WHITE AND PINK

White and pink dominate my week. Our respite from rain revealed blooming Lilies of the Valley and an unknown bush that gives clusters of pretty white blossoms. The chives are busy producing flowers too.  The flower buds were supposed to be snipped if I wanted to use the leaves.  But flowers are flowers.  So, IContinue reading “WHITE AND PINK”

(An Ode to) THAT DANDELION!

Much has been said of the dandelion too lowly, so pretty too weedy, so tasty. Such a nuisance on smooth grass Goes so well with the lettuce. Whichever side of the fence you’re on regarding these dandelions – they brighten up the naked earth they serve up a feast while other flowers still sleep. AndContinue reading “(An Ode to) THAT DANDELION!”
