Earth Day Cometh


If heaven had given me choice of my position & calling, it should've been as a gardener-

Good morning, mama! Love that quote and the tulip; my very favorite. :)

Have a wonderful day!

I concur with Jefferson... was planning on planting trees at my parents' house with my kiddos this Friday, now we're thinking of starting a "fund" to buy trees to plant in Deltaville when we can instead... Perhaps we'll pick up trash and cash in the cans... I'm rambling.

You would have been the best gardener, and Texas would have an abundance of bluebonnets. Amen

Yes, yes, yes ... and my world would be filled with hostas, flox and lilac bushes!

Nice perspective there. And a fine quote to match.

Gardening is an art. One that I can appreciate!

My balcony is all planted and the herbs and flowers are thriving! Love this time of year.

First learn which is a baby sprout, which is a weed .. gardening is the most relaxing rewarding therapy I know.

Love the TJ!

I want to go there and take a picture like this with the house as bokeh.

Sounds like a plan that may have to wait until Fall, though - when the Bird goes back.

Loves me some TJ. His house is a work of art. Arts and sciences, actually.

Kathleen... said...
