Tuesday:) Take Time To Smell The Flowers

27 Mar

Take time to smell the flowers

Spend time with that dear friend

Take pictures of each moment

For memories never end

Such a glorious beautiful day today. My alarm went off at 7 am. I walked the dog over by the pond and caught the lovely sunrise before heading off to zumba at the Y.

Today was a day of amazing colors, nature, walking, and friendship. After Zumba, I was pooped. I threw myself on the bed and was going to take a nap, but I thought first I’d see if anyone wanted to go to lunch later. Sherri Murphy said she was free and asked if I wanted to go over to Shades of Green Nursery over in Frisco to get some flowers in about half an hour. (No nap) Well, I have a black thumb and can’t grow anything, but I love to look. Also, it was p a good place for painting inspiration. I always say, “I can’t grow a flower, but I can paint a flower. We all have our gifts.”

After Sherri got a big cartload of flowers and I took a ton of pictures, we stopped for a Taco Tuesday lunch. On the way home, Sherri wanted to show me a cool spot she stumbled upon off the beaten path. She always finds the coolest photo ops.

What a fun day! I was so inspired and refreshed (after a short nap) that I took another long walk before sunset. I put in 5.3 miles today. I always love to catch the sunset and take another picture of God’s glorious gifts.

Another great day, from sunrise to sunset.

    When fall is just approaching plant some bulbs. I had daffodils come up for years and did no work after initial planting. Natured watered them. They didnt freeze. You can pick them at first bloom and dont worry about it after. Let the leaves dry out and rot . They’ll be back next year. A nice pop of colour after gray winter. This house we moved too has white irises blooming. Yay

      I think that planting bulbs in fall is one of the best things to do. Planting them ended up helping me get through some discouraging winter nights. If I had a difficult day and was finding it hard to fall asleep, I would remind myself of those bulbs under the soil and picture how they would look when they bloomed in spring.
