Wordless Wednesday: how does your garden grow?




Mama of this empty nest, I’m content to live a quiet, country life with my husband of 40+ years and to view the gorgeous sunsets off my own back yard deck. Mama to three adults and Nana to adorable grandchildren, my empty nest fills up again with noise and laughter when they all return 'home'. A former English teacher, reporter/editor, education director for a non-profit organization, and stay at home mom, I retired after a season of substitute teaching at a private academy. Now I enjoy time spent with my grandchildren and family and writing words that seem to pour out of my soul or wandering around the countryside with my camera. Foremost, my faith sustains me as I meander through the empty nest stage of life. My favorite scripture is 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18: “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

  1. It looks like yours is coming right along. 😀 The coneflowers appeared this week, overshadowed by the dallies; so I trimmed them (dallies) back to give the coneflowers breathing room and sunshine.


    1. Coneflowers are pretty. We used to have some in our perennial garden but we didn’t keep the other plants trimmed back like you did. Hubby is the real gardener at our house and he just didn’t have time back then to keep after it all. But that’s changed and the gardens look better now. I’m just the official weed puller. 😉

    1. Oh come now, Dor, you know me and my black thumb. 😉 The garden at our house is all my hubby’s doing. Left to my plant killing ways, we’d have to eat weeds. And why, I wonder, don’t I kill them like I do plants??


So...what do you think? Tell me. I appreciate your feedback and read each comment. Thank you!
