I am a lover of blue, sunrises, butterflies, summer, the sea.
I help when I can and find a lesson in every day.
I value honesty and kindness.
I am excited about opportunity, concerned about my health, enthusiastic about living.
I need laughter, waves, and words.
I give compassion, respect, encouragement, and support.
I fear lost time and Kingda Ka (the rollercoaster).
I would like to see a world filled with humanity instead of acrimony.
I live to live and dream to make my life come alive.
I believe in filling my soul with joy and my heart with love.
Stay tuned the final installment, Part 7: I Go!, tomorrow.
I took this photo yesterday of my tiger lilies using my iPhone.
The funny thing is, I never planted tiger lilies in my yard.
The flowers grew all by themselves in 2013. At that time, the single plant was about as tall as my shoulder.
In 2014, I had three tiger lily plants that grew, and last year, about 5 came up.
I’m now up to 8 plants scattered by nature in my flower beds.
Today’s photo depicts the original 2013 plant. It has grown to be 6 feet tall! It’s as tall as my husband and has more buds on it than ever.
I never had more than 2 flowers open at once. Today there are 6 open on the original plant, and the first bloom that opened dropped it’s first petal onto the ground.
I am grateful that these beauties decided to call my yard home.
One of the weekly posts I intend to write will be a roundup of interesting pages and web finds from the week. Save them for a rainy day, a weekend, or when you just feel like tooling around the Internet.
