About John Hric

a gardener in north east ohio. Mostly organic, I used to have a vegetable garden. Now except for the raspberries it is mostly flower garden. And more and more that is becoming mostly daylilies. With a sprinkling of other things here and there.

one

one flower at a time. one day at a time. one picture at a time. one worry at a time. enough chasing a perfect flower. enough seeking a perfect day. one step at a time. in the garden…

stage

set. light. scenery. center. it isn’t always the golden hour. shadows move. players move. the plot develops. is it time to deliver the line ?

voicing

saying. expressing. seeing. what will i say ? how will i see it ? not the mechanics. the being. the experience. all flowers are complex. even if they appear simple. perception is not the flower’s problem. so this will be purple perception…

too many

well not really too many. in fact about now it is just about right. or i could wait till the end of june to see them in the yard. i think these will have to do for now. january and february may be long months. and they do not last forever. and with patience these guys will be back soon enough…

chalk eye

i love the chalk eyezone on this pink seedling. what i wish for is to keep the chalk eye and put it on longer skinnier petals. in pink of course. of course mother nature will laugh. and until i try i will never know. so go for it…
