Gardening, my sanity. For some it is cooking to restore equilibrium to their life, others it is jogging or some other sort of physicality, and music is also a great barometer for your emotional status at anytime. I tend to find the greatest solace in gardening. Digging, weeding, planting, and sweating in my yard brings me back to the basics and restores the balance to my life. While toiling in the yard, I can solve almost any puzzle/dilemma that is currently causing me trouble.
The simplicity of flowers and vegetables is amazing, they need exactly what I need. A spot to be picked out to be planted in, somewhere where they can flourish. The right amount of sun, water and fertilizer to sustain a healthy growth. A ton of love and encouragement to reach for the sun/stars. Amazing how when all the ingredients are present, we all blossom, bloom and provide joy to those that surround us or come into contact with us. How utterly, wonderfully, and perfectly simple.
Our iris are blooming, I know I have mentioned how many different rhizomes Steven has planted through out our yard. They are beautiful and simply make everyone who visits smile while stopping to enjoy them. It is really hard to pick out just one as your favorite!
I hope that you enjoy these lovely blooms! Now when I talk about the abundance of iris in our yard, you will kinda know the scope of what I am referring to. This is the beginning of the blooming in our yard, this is definitely the fireworks of spring.
So much more to come, nurture and love simply what all of us need daily…………………Cyn
