The Gardens - In the Beginning

Fried Eggs & Oats



Strawberry 


Holy Leaf ;)


Beyond the back door a garden is opening it's sleepy eyes and slowly yawning as it awakens and pulls itself away from this past winters icy grip.  Earlier springs have seen it's force explode across the horizons with a manic green rush that sends this gardener scrambling to keep pace, but today it is relaxing in a deckchair with a cup of steamy hot coffee laced with cream and contemplating it's next move.  I like that.

Vic's flying in for a much needed R & R, and I'm ecstatic...doing my happy dance as he likes to say!  Usually staying up late on Fridays and Saturday 'cause that's when I can accomplish great triumphs in my domestic world, a rude awakening brought me abruptly to my feet, too early this morning, to examine the view from each window for chunks of fallen sky.  A diddly day of no consequences stared back at me through each of the eight windows.  A certain calico dropping from great heights to the counter top below, like a lead weight, is high on the suspicion list.


Belladonna Leaves
They'll die to the ground & flowers will appear mid-summer.


Crossroads of Water and Electricity


Eroded Opening
Lucky Find at a Construction Site


Lilliput Iris


Patio Moss in Concrete Cracks


Just talking about myself, political incorrectness and all; been working on flattening a pooched out tummy and shedding more poundage from my expanded bod.  Almost every piece of constructed fabric in my closet fits me now...YAHOO!!!  There's still more to loose so the knees are hunky dory and the heart is doing a happy dance of it's own.  I've had to face the skeletons in my cupboard and wrestle them to the ground in a choke hold. They come up for air every once in a while and I treat myself to the glory of trashy comfort food...you know...Pepsi's...pastries...ice cream :)     


Seed Heads on ? Plant 


Tangled Web of Joe Pye Weed Stems
Ants live in the hollow stems during winter.


Silverstream Tulip
Not my favorite, but the only one that keeps coming back.



A Bit of Sunshine for a Dreary Day


Realizing a baggy cat lady will be my impending image after I drop more poundage and nothing fits in a cloud nine type of way,  I've been on a quest to find the impossible in a world where possibilities only exist if you don't miss the boat.  It seems like my Levi's boat up and sunk.  Jean favorites of all cotton with a touch of elasticity have flown the coop and the cottons with a heavy dose of polyester, rayon, and triple elasticity have rushed in to claim their space :(  The weekend has been endless searches to unearth any coveted products that have not sold out yet on any remote shopping sites.  Will Vic empathize with the fact that a cluttered disaster of a home was less important than my fanny?



Oak Leaves are Falling from the Trees


Foam Flower Leaf with Winter Color


I Spy You!


Native Honeysuckle
Waiting for warmer weather to fatten up the leaves once again.


Been a little hermit in my cozy rags this dreary weekend.  Time's flying and the thought of a journey to the grocery store is dying with disinterest as darkness awaits on the horizon.  I suppose a second evening of old fashioned oats with thawed blueberries, two fried eggs, and a small mixed greens salad isn't all that bad...I guess.  I do have thoughts of fried Italian sweet sausages  in my head...mmmmmm...maybe I'll get dressed...maybe.   


Lily Seed Pod


Hickory Nut Shell


Allegheny Spurge


Sweet Bay Magnolia among the Ash


Taking down the last Christmas decorations tonight, hehehe...the walls look quite barren at the moment with all that glitz and glitter stuffed into cardboard boxes for another year, or in my case for another seven months ;)  Taking sporadic days off work here and there for the next three weeks 'cause I hate vacations that are really vacations.  Did you buy that?  A little bit of smoke exits my ears anytime I dwell too long on the fact that I am a one person office, and the others aren't interested in making my life easier by helping out when I'm absent.  Not relishing a repeat of last years fiasco when I didn't show up for two weeks and then it took me the entire third week to untangle the mess, I'll be going to work once in a while this vacation :(  C'est la vie.
