This morning one of our resident does brought her twins
out to play by the pond. Its so much fun to watch them
frolicking around. They have pogo sticks for legs and
bounce all over the place. Its a peaceful feeling to look
out your front window and watch the wildlife.
Here's another strange but true story in my life. I like to
think of these events as messages for me. They don't
come as words, but the feelings I have when I discover
these things speak volumes. Life just feels better.
About ten years ago, my father passed away. He was the
gardener extraordinaire, everything he planted grew, and
he loved to plant roses. So that spring I thought I would
carry on the legacy and grow roses like my father. Me,
who up till that point hardly put anything in the ground.
For two years I planted rose bushes. I weeded, hoed,
watered, fertilized and for one year I got flowers. After
that first year everything went down hill...fast.
Finally I gave up and just left them alone...totally. The
grass that used to be pasture for my horses grew back
up and the roses disappeared. Or so I thought....
Yesterday Geary left this sweet little rose on the counter
for me. I asked him where he got it. "In your rose garden"
He said there were plants out there blooming. What?!?
documented if its true and marched outside to the
pasture. Sure enough, hidden in the grass were
blooming and growing rose bushes.
Hey Dad! Look at these will ya! I know they are
puny and need some help. So we'll see what happens from
