There are several topics I have been wanting to write about for the past two weeks but they are still simmering on the back burner of my communicative mind. Please forgive the repetition of my gardening theme.
What I have been doing most is very actively attending to the never-ending, joyful tasks associated with updating, deadheading, watering and maintaining my flower garden.
I do fierce battle with the aphids ( the green, brown, white and red varieties). I search for the elusive caterpillers who munch on lovely blooms. I resort to forceful watering of plants with whiteflies.
After I am done picking, pinching back and maintaining, I sit and admire the incredible beauty that God has provided in the intricsies of patterning, color and hue of the flowers. I admire the stradfastness of tender blossoms straining to maintain themself in the harsh ninety degree humid weather. I am the greatest fan and cheerleader for them all.
They reward me by reflowering themselves and holding on until they can once again have cool night time breezes to refurbish their strength.
Here are a few pictures I just took . I hope that you will enjoy the views.
