I've noticed that the blooming trees aren't quite as full as last year. Maybe the after effects of our harsh winter. I have to admit to being wrong about something....my roses are starting to put out new growth. I thought that they had died, and I was told to be patient...maybe they would come. This is true for my big sage plant. Who would have thought that these would be a month late? I was in such a hurry to tidy up....that I didn't really give these plants time to grow this year. I'm so glad that I wasn't strong enough to dig them out of the ground. I just left the base of the plants...thinking that they would be covered with my ground cover planting.
This reminds me of real life. How many times do we need patience when dealing with an (what we think) unsolvable problem? How many times are we told to just wait and see what happens? It's hard to wait...we want things in an instant in this very fast world. We need to just relax and wait....I'm a pretty patient person, but sometimes I need to listen to my own words.
I'm thinking about when I work in the yard...I need a little respite from the heat and head for the front porch...where comfortable chairs and a cool drink are waiting. We need to make our containers comfortable and give them a cool drink on a hot day.
Well, hot days will be here soon. We've just had a little taste of heat and now it's cool again. I'm going to be patient :) and just wait for the heat....it will come soon enough.
