I’ll have to search for a new photo (or two) for this week’s challenge but this photo from a few weeks ago is the first one I thought of when I saw the challenge. The red and white tulips planted in a specific order to form a maple leaf.
It was one of many eye-catching displays that the tulips made this spring. I have to go down to the Niagara Parks Commission soon to see what the next planting is!
I’m a messy gardener. You’ll find weeds and wildflowers and grasses in my garden. Partly because they grow better than the plants I’ve put in my garden. Partly because they’re good for the local bees and butterflies.
I usually enjoy making a variety of container gardens but this year I decided to spend the money on a new cell phone. I wasn’t going to buy any plants for my front porch but…
They called to me. I just didn’t find my porch “done” without something growing. So I just happened to bring home some portulaca (very heat and drought resistant) and a couple huge coleus for the shady spot underneath. I’ll share some more photos when the portulaca blooms.
Digging in the dirt is so relaxing. Perfect for a warm June afternoon.
The purpose of Three Things Thursday is to celebrate the things that made us smile during the past week. I’m meshing that with my Grateful for … post this week as I’m always grateful for those moments that make me smile. (and I’m short on blogging time)
What made you smile this week? What are you grateful for?
This challenge is wide open. Evanescent can be any fleeting moment in time. It could be the moment you drop a seed into your garden, marking that promise of new growth to come. It could be a photo of the Eastern Phoebe that visits your deck each day, wagging her tail as she calls her own name. If you’re in the Southern Hemisphere, it could be that carpet of leaves that fell overnight, before the wind scatters them. It might be the moment you light the first fire of Fall.
That moment between transferring energy to the shot put and its landing.
