Changing of the Seasons

It seems that we have had a season change. 
I'm not sure how time goes by so quickly,
but it does.

Every  year I try to plant something to grow on my front steps.
It just doesn't get much sun.
This year I hit the jackpot.
It seems like impatiens do grow in the shade.

If I can only remember this for next year.

I struggle with peoples dependency on cell phones.
I have one.
I keep the volume turned off.
I check for texts at least once a day.
I just don't think that there is anything that important.

I see people drive with them.
I see people work with them.
I see people have them at 
and movies.

Really, I just don't get it.

If you really want to talk to me,
Call my land line.
I will get back to you,
I promise.

Just Thinking

So, one day in the Spring
a co-worker brought a bag of bulbs to work
and left them for whoever wanted them.

I took some;
came home;
went out to the back fence
and planted them in the mud.

They started blooming last week.
They are beautiful.

I'm sure there is lesson in there;
maybe several lessons;
but I'm just happy to have them in my garden.

Late Summer

I love this time of year.
The flowers still are blooming,
and we still have leaves on the trees.

I know fall will be in Southern Idaho before we know it,
but I'm still enjoying summer.

The Gladiolas are doing great for being 1st years. 

I know these are weeds,
but they are the cutest weeds in the yard.

And these pansies were planted by Peter
when he came to stay with us in April.

I'm so happy they keep blooming.
