Pretty Things

Greetings from the garden!  Lying on the footstool are my faithful gardening gloves. When I think how overworked my hands have become over the years: typing, gardening, embroidering, painting, drawing, writing, flower pressing, paper folding–endless activity for the fingers, it’s no wonder they are sore in the evening.

But without all the interests, what would I be doing? I can’t even imagine what my life would be like without hobbies or interests, could you? I just know that, in this stage of my life,  I haven’t tried everything I want to do. I need to do more and learn more. How about you?

Get outdoors!

  1. I agree, brilliant…………love your garden and cant wait to come visit it again.
    All the colors and fragrances are so exciting and beautiful. I just went from one thing to another and oooohhhd and ahhhhhd all around the house.

  2. What are those vibrant purple flowers at the top? They look familiar… Gorgeous all… You forgot to add photography to your list; and you are brilliant at it. 🙂

  3. These little beauties are eye openers. Gardening has helped me to appreciate the beauty of pretty little things, and help me account for my time. Through this hobby, I have rediscovered photography and I enjoy both. Thanks for sharing your wonderful garden.

  4. What a wonderful garden, so colorful and cheerful! It looks like a place to just enjoy the beauty around you.

    There are so many things that I would like to do, but there just isn’t enough time to do them all. I have adopted the same philosophy with my hobbies as I have with my home. Before something new comes in, something old must go. It really helps me to remain focused on the things that are meaningful to me. It’s kind of like my bank account, just not enough to go around!

  5. Terrie, you are sooo right. Interests and hobbies are sometimes our primary concern…or maybe our lifeboat in the choppy seas of life.
    Without writing my life would be empty. I do not mean to be overly dramatic, but it is true. I even escape through the conflicts and joys of the characters I create.
    Does it sound immature or silly?
