July in the Garden


Well, July has been a beautiful month!

Crepis Flower


The flowers have started blooming and promise to bless me with an abundance of beauty.

Rubenza Cosmos


I am experimenting with many new varieties and have not found one I dislike!


Every week has brought a new look to the garden. At first it was lush and green, then color burst on the scene . Even the squash and pumpkin flowers light up the landscape  with their beauty.

My morning check-in really fills my soul with such a sense of peace. I am daily in awe of what we can produce with a bit of ambition, hope and desire.

The garden is something I never take for granted. It is beauty at its finest, but the beauty must be guided and coddled. In return we are given shadow and light, texture, color and scent.

 

Being in the garden allows me time to dream, to carve my purpose, to plan.


Did you know I have at least 5 novels started? While I am in the garden I am thinking of my storyline and characters...and of course another...

I hope to carve out more writing time. I have always known that growing beautiful flowers, and writing are my two purposes on Earth.

I used to think I was supposed to find a way to combine the two. Recently I have been thinking that I am meant to let each take on its own unique entity. 


That thrills me!


I hope you will all be around someday when I need first draft readers.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy seeing what I have been up to.

Leave me a note in the comments.


I would love to know what your July has been filled with.

Goodbye spring....


Spring came on late after a snowy April...



and brought with it a glorious palette of sherbet-toned blooms.


Ranunculus proved to be a glorious reprieve from a long-anticipated spring.


I will pull the corms soon and save them for next year's field planting.
What was a trial has morphed into a new spring flower LOVE.


You pick these blooms when starting to show color, and they unfurl layer
 after layer of velvety pigment.


The wild growing Grandiflora roses made a perfect accompaniment.


These blossoms restored my spirit after a very long winter. 


Now we are on to summer...and anxiously await an abundance of blooms. 
This weekend's heat wave has ushered us quickly into summer.
Bring it on!
