But we make time for those things we want to. Just sometimes it is response to others applying pressure and all we want is to get that feeling of pressure off! Well, today let’s just buck that trend, shall we? Do you need to take a little time to savor life today? Here are some of my photos and some links I thought were very worthwhile reading lately.
Assorted and asundry photos that for some reason didn’t get posted.
This is what endless summer looks like in fall. It had the loveliest shabby rose colored blooms.
These are my neighbors who own Yonies Greenhaus. I try to buy as many of my flowers from them as I can. They just started up in the last few years, and have excellent plant material, grown with earth friendly means. I learned of the use of neem oil while listening in on their conversations with another customer. (I’m snoopy like that, if I’m not in a hurry). They are the BEST neighbors and really wonderful growers. Worth taking the time to find, not far from the Der Dutchman restaurant. I’ll post more on the next growing season.
I might have already posted one view of this. I liked these containers ( two matching ones. They were pretty all through the season. I cut back hard after this photo- and the plants rewarded me, but no pictures. I was off to other vistas with the camera. The planter is a bit …ahem…rustic since I used these for my daughter’s wedding flower arrangements and had stuck duct tape on to secure them to a stand, which was then covered over with Spanish moss. They were so lovely 🙂 But when I pulled off the duct tape… oops, no paint, just the resin base. I keep meaning to touch it up, but you know how that goes…
An offspring from the old “Fairy” mix of Shirley poppies I scattered through the garden so long ago. Brushed with the bronze fennel foliage.
A portrait of my porch begonias this year.
An orchid in my living room. So far it is still growing.
Some worthwhile links for today:
Nice post Ilona, Good links brought back some wonderful memories.
Have a great evening,
“shabby” old rose color of hydrangia flowers
is exactly true image of the
transition of this season. decline
and renew is the natural way
of all things. great photograph!
as usual, image inspires haiku…
fading color shows
old rose receding to grey
touched by autumn’s chill.
EAL-sorry your comment got lost- late night! But yes, Endless Summer does not disappoint.
