Letting Go and Moving Forward

—echinacea purpurea

  • 40-inch stalks of this coneflower dwarf this 8-inch stem that blossomed earlier this week. Mother Nature is playing a cruel trick on my perennials as many of them are sprouting leaves as though it were May—not December!
  • Dapper and I went to the flicks last night to see The Descendants which was filmed in Hawaii. The opening scene of an old school lanai gave me chills. The music and familiar scenery really sent me hurtling back in time. During a traditional Hawaiian song, I purposefully closed my eyes wishing that I could be transported body and soul back in time. Of course, it didn’t work—all I could grasp were some pleasant memories. And I was satisfied with that.

  1. This is happening here in Pennsylvania a lot. We’ve had so much unseasonably warm weather. Our forsythia bushes are blossoming, my lilac bush dropped all its leaves in November but now it has bright fresh green leaves again and there were dandelions on the dike covered with frost the other day…. mother nature doesn’t know what to do.
