but, not today!!!
today is a very dreary day. but, the spring flowers are in bloom; and they are still beautiful even if the sun is not shining down upon them:D
i love my home!!! i especially love that john bought me the house where i grew up for our first anniversary (where we've lived for the 17 years, since), where most of the neighbors are still the same, and where the lawns are as GOD intended them... 'all naturalle' (aka full of weeds, LOL!!!)...
i know i don't share the popular thought that weeds are bad and should be eradicated.. but honestly, nature-wise, nothing excites me more than for all the lawns on our lane to be covered in violets (blue and pale), daffodils, trillium, wild geraniums, rue anemone, and, yes, even the dreaded DANDELIONS (which, btw, have always been katherine's favorite flower)!!! this almost always happens the first week of april rain or shine. and, let me just say... this year we've had a lot more rain than shine!!!
i enjoy my 'weeds' so much that if the chem-lawn man rang my door-bell and offered me free lawn treatment for the rest of my life... grooming included... i'd say, "thank you; but, no, thank you."
i know... i know... there is a resounding, "thank goodness she doesn't live next to me!!!" to that i say to each his/her own; beauty is in the eye of the beholder!!! and right now i think the lane is beautiful... clouds, weeds, et. al...
thank you, GOD, for a garden that doesn't need tending!!!
i love wild violets.
i love that katherine loves dandelions.
i love that even at 15 she loves, loves, loves to blow the dandelions.
i love that i don't have to worry that she is spreading weeds to our neighbor's yards, respectively, because they already have them, too:DDD
