You see, we have had one of the most beautiful Springs in recorded history (literally) here in the Houston area. The temperatures have been lower than any since they began keeping records. Also the humidity levels have often been low as well making the days just awesomely beautiful.
Combined with that I have been feeling so good. I have had more energy than I have had in at least a couple of years, and along with the energy, the will to get out and enjoy the beautiful Spring days and do what I use to love doing most, working in my yard.

In addition to the usual plants, I found some new ones that are beautiful and unusual. I always enjoy that. One that I found this year is a Brazilian Plum Plant. It is so unusual and beautiful. It has dark green glossy leaves and a pink plumed flower.
Since the Spring has been so delightful and I've felt so good, I've spent many whole days out in the
So, I guess the honest assessment is, I could have posted more over the last few weeks, but it just wasn't my first priority. I've been taking time to stop and smell the roses - literally! However, that is not all there is to it either. I have been turning over and over in my mind thoughts on my next post. It is a particularly difficult one to write, so it has been good to have the time to think about it.

All the pictures of flowers are from my back yard. Those of you who know something about growing flowers will recognize many of these are shade tolerant or shade loving plants.
That is because most of my yard is under some magnificent trees. The few sun loving plants are tucked into the few small sunny spaces I have where they at least get the morning sun. I'd like to show you the yard itself, but for obvious reasons, that is not possible. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
I really hope they inspire you to find your own way to relax and enjoy the present.
