green and growing

Growth and change continue as the Roma discovers a rosy hue. The trumpet vine is ready to herald its call for those nectar loving creatures while the lettuce bowls whisper their readiness. The Marigolds stand as sentinels to keep furry friends away. (Maybe a raise will inspire them to do a bit better.)

This garden had been a respite. The shovel uncovers treasures of lost toys, marbles and metals; burying disappointments and doubts as the holes fill with new life. The wind and birds share their melodies with those who will stop to listen.

As a gardener, I’m among those who believe that much of the evidence of God’s existence has been planted. ~Robert Brault

…the basic reality of God is plain enough. Open your eyes and there it is! By taking a long and thoughtful look at what God has created, people have always been able to see what their eyes as such can’t see: eternal power, for instance, and the mystery of his divine being. So nobody has a good excuse. Romans 1:19-20 MSG

    • When I first moved in (before gardens and art), a friend said, “This is an artist’s cottage.” Yup. Although I can’t keep cottage flowers returning like lupine, foxglove, hollyhocks. Cozy is often a word used about this place.

    • I do have babies that keep coming up Joe and wisteria on the other half of the pergola. It’s a good kind of jungle! Hope yours shows bountiful blooms for the hummingbirds!
