my latest few posts here have clarified for me this one true thing: All is Interconnected/
We are All One…on the “Web” or engaged in the web of life, the many different means of communication all work to serve the same human needs.
my wrestling with these new ways of communication is part of what history would say
defines ‘my generation’ ( the Who song- did you think of it right off? )
we were mostly hippies, sometimes back-to-the-landers, and luddites many years ago.
some of us just stayed there…
we are the lucky ones, in these tough times IMHO. woo-hoo i have just txtspoken.
my main point here is that be it birdsong or twitter, we have a need for communication and connection to all living things. we are human, and must be interconnected in our interactions;
we are simply made so! to sit and ponder a nonexistent difference is precious time
better spent out in the yard.
Easter morning here on the Ga. piedmont fall line is cool and sunny. i was up and outside in the
early morning air. our springtime air is almost palpable against your face; it is moist and
so soft, like the finest touch against your skin. my 25′ old-timey cultivar-1823-banksia rose
began its impressive cascade of small palest yellow flowers almost overnight. it is truly quite
a vast arbor (an old martin pole and smaller trash trees its trellis) that mere photos can
never quite encompass. it’s my bad luck to be a sneezing fool around it, but one must
make small sacrifices to nature’s beauty….wish youall could see it!
once more, i will end with haiku for this breathtaking morning.
Blessed be to the Earth and all its people. vty, J-lea
– easter morning –
moon moving slow
mirrors brilliant sunrise skies,
All is risen today…

I know the Banksia rose well.
My neighbour back in the UK had an old one. The trunk was gnarled like an apple tree.Beautiful.
You are fortunate to have one.
Beautiful and touching observations, expressed in that manner. It’s a good day for this.
What a beautiful blog you have! I like the theme.
It was beautiful here,too, on Easter albeit a bit chilly. I cooked most of yesterday 🙂
The banksia rose was one of Gertrude Jekyll’s favorites (and of other famous English gardeners). It must be a vision- especially so early in the season. My own roses are just starting to leaf out.
thanks youall for your generous comments. eastertime and spring just bring is all together for this gardener!
i planted a gallon can of banksia
rose at the base of the purple martin pole, when it became (sadly)
evident that they weren’t returning much anymore.
that was 20 years ago, and the trunk is now at least 8″ around at the base, rugged rusty twisty wood that looks like maybe it would be the “briarwood” for pipes? i am so allergic, but it is right beside the garden, so i just endure the pollen. vty, johanna
