some nights

some nights i drift.  others i do not.  pictures found.  lotr watched.  maybe a very small drift or two.  now for a fumbling of words.  what would a wizard think of a daylily ?  might they be any better describing its beauty ?  would their familiarity with magic help ?  or would they too fumble for words ?  creatures of light ?  does the breeze shape them ?  or do the daylilies gently swirl the breeze ?  perhaps some tea and we can sit and observe…



hook up the new dishwasher.  find some pictures.  drift in and out of that conscious state.  opt for speedy indifference rather than panic.  that could result in mediocre words.  which the flowers will still undoubtedly outdo.  and still much better than sleeping through the publish button.  do try not to sleep before publish.  oh yes there are flowers and sunshine something we get very little of this time of the year living south of the lake.  think dependable cloud generator.  now for those flowers…

can a flower bring moonlight into the garden ?  it might be possible.  and what do the rest of them bring ?  take your pick.  exercise your imagination.  nature has a little something hidden away for each of us…

sun and rain

when it rains we remember the sun.  when the sun shines too long and hot we start to remember the rain.  it has been a grey rainy day here.  some flowers and sun to remember.

does sorting pictures count ?  today was a day not spent in the garden.  it was a cool grey day.  a day for other things.  tonight i spent some time putting labels on pictures.  not a bad evening considering there were one or two seedlings that had been hiding amongst the other flowers.  in fact they were all good to see again.

no frost yet

the daylily wants to bloom.  so far it has not.  it may be running out of time.  more plants were moved today.  this evening was a time of spontaneous naps.  i am going to try to finish this and go for scheduled sleep.  what a concept !

today was a good day to wander the garden through the picture folders.  adding notes and trying to make sense of all the pictures from this past summer.  finding lost flowers and enjoying forgotten surprises.  it was also a day for platelet donation.  that means an extra nap and replenishment of vital electrolytes.  i wandered far ahead into the folders of summer and wandered back here for today’s pictures.  if it is nice tomorrow i will wander back into the garden.  i will check to see if we have had a frost.  and see if a late stubborn daylily gets to bloom.  and perhaps move a few more plants.
