Friday flowersPosted: May 4, 2012
The rhododendrons are beginning to bloom. When I looked at them a day or two ago, I thought it would be another week before the flowers blossomed. I was wrong. The warm weather of the past couple of days must have spurred them on.
I would love to visit the arboretum to see if the rhododendrons are blooming up there, but I won’t have time today or tomorrow. I have more exciting plans.
What could be more exciting than tramping around the arboretum? Why, spending time with our granddaughters and their parents of course. Yay!
I can’t think of anything else I’d rather do, not even visit the arboretum. Besides, I might be able to fit that in on Sunday. It depends on the weather and what’s happening around here at Breezy Acres.
Our trip to Maine and the Eastern Canadian Provinces is coming up fast. Although M and I do need to get out and hike some more in preparation for it, we also have plenty of things to keep us busy here at home.
We still have a few tons of dirt to move (literally — I’m not kidding), and the front porch project to work on. Then there’s the garden. We’re hoping to get the broccoli and chard planted this weekend. The asparagus, by the way, is coming in like gangbusters. We feasted on some of that at lunchtime today. Roasted, and then tossed in a salad. Yum.
Well, I’d better get moving. I have a lot to do before I see my granddaughters. Thank you visiting. May your weekend be filled with wonder, magic, and playfulness.
Can you imagine experiencing the world as a great sandbox given for us to play in like we did as children? As we play, we can also open ourselves to the exploration of our edges, always creating new adventures of self-exploration as we let go of old out-dated beliefs about ourselves.
