My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

My Flower Bed


Coming home to my beautiful flowers makes me feel so welcome and sometimes comforted. I love spring when the new flowers are budding. I feel like everything gets a fresh new start. When I am sad, they comfort me. When I feel happy, they seem to share in my happiness. They fit every one of my moods so I guess that is why I like gardening. Every time a new flower opens, I am so excited! I don't remember even planting these yellow irises so imagine my surprise when they bloomed. I have purple irises all over my yard but I don't remember having yellow ones. It was thrilling to see something that I hadn't expected greet me when we got home from vacation. After spending 2 weeks in Utah where we saw snow and desert (which means hardly any blooming flowers), it was exciting to see the different blooms greeting us when we arrived home. I knew that some things had buds on them when we left and I felt kind of disappointed that I would miss their beautiful blooms while we were gone. I had expected all of the blooming to be over when we got back home but they waited for us. I am so thankful to get to see them.
