soon

in the coming weeks it will be time to get back into the garden.  the flagged plants will need to moved and the old seedling bed cleared.  this year’s crop of seeds will need to be sorted and selected.  and most importantly planted.  between all that there will be daffodils, tulips, Virginia Bluebells and other assorted blooms to watch.  and eventually the daylilies will get into line and it will be time to make new pictures.  and see what surprises are ready to come from the next batch of seedlings.  six images…

flowers

daylilies mostly keep it simple.  they say what they need to say with three petals and three sepals.  that is all they need.  some days they get really wordy and do it with a double flower or a few more petals and sepals.  so when did i get the idea of over explaining something that has been working for hundreds and hundreds of years ?  let’s go with the flowers.  six images…

idea

idea.  darn it happened again.  that plan thing from last night.  of course i used the same justification i do when i want to buy a new daylily too.  i don’t have a problem.  daylilies are good and i need more.  yes the yard is pretty much full.  don’t worry i will figure out where to put it.  yes i might need to move 3 or 6 plants before i get the new one where it needs to be.  look i told you this is not a problem.  eight images…

melt

i guess the object in the snow absorbs and reflects more heat.  what ever the reason it is not unusual to see a small circle of melt around each flower.  or is spring just in a hurry ?  seven  images…

time

winter can be waiting.  however there are different ways of waiting.  one can count the days.  or one can find other ways.  ways that are less waiting and more diverting.  pleasantly even.  spending time on other activities.  and reviewing and remembering the unfolding of other summers.  wandering the image folders discovering more sunshine than the brief appearances the clouds allowed today.  so here are todays memories.  six images…
