Thank you for this Monday Morning serene retreat. I watched it with tears streaming down my face. I so needed some peace and Light (Living in God’s Holy Thought). The green pasture, the beautiful hanging plants on your back porch, those two precious cats, the blue birdbath, the sound of the animals greeting you, Fate and Zinnia, Jon’s kind words and you, Maria, are a rare woman of depth, compassion and creativity. Thank you for sharing.
Antoinette, that is what I had hoped for.I feel so helpless these days, to be able to bring some peace to someone, that is something at least.
Your gardens are beautiful Maria! I worked in my garden this weekend and planted fingerling potatoes, ground cherries, and zucchini. I also had to do some weeding due to all the rain that we have had. This week we will be getting baby chicks, so much fun. The geese and ducks are setting on nests but nothing hatched so far. Strawberries will be ripening in June! Thought that I would make some ice cream topping with it. It goes great over angel food cake to:)
Sounds like you have a very beautiful garden, Marsha. Baby chicks, what fun! I have one strawberry plant with a few blooms. Now I want ice cream and strawberries!
When is the best time to dig and move Iris? They are just blooming now, so I know not at the moment, but was wondering if after the bloom I could do it or this fall. I planted my glads this weekend and asked the fellas where my dahlia bag was and no one seemed to know. So I started to clean the garage and low and be hold it was on the bottom shelf behind some of their junk:) So I will have to get those planted soon. They are such a pretty flower. Thought I might plant some autumn beauty sunflowers to. I got 4 black hollyhock plants this year from my heirloom resource. If I am able to save any of the seed, I will save some for you so that you can plant it in your garden. A friend had a sister in Indiana that had black hollyhocks and she said they were pretty.
I’m not really sure about moving the iris’ Marsha, but I moved a bunch of them after they bloomed last year and they seem to be doing well this year. They’re pretty hardy. Black Hollyhocks sound beautiful. I’ve always like the black pansies and Iris. Although my favorite Iris is the yellow and purple ones. I have a few of them that were growing in the yard when we moved in.
Hello, Maria… We always enjoy the Monday “Good Morning” videos. Jon’s comments today were appreciated but quite unnecessary: the prodigious amount of thought and effort that goes into those blogs is apparent and never taken for granted. I’m amazed how it’s even possible to accomplish that, and do all the other things you guys do. And your soft touch is a perfect complement to Jon’s hard truths. Greetings from Donald and Barbara, an OMAR and his wife under curfew in Arizona.
Thanks Donald, it’s nice to know that you know us well enough to see that and that it comes through. Going ahead with business as usual, but didn’t feel right yesterday without some acknowledgment of what is happening throughout the country.
