This week has been pure joy for me. Among many reasons, the weather has been perfect, and I was able to do some serious work in the yard without physical limitations hampering me. Thanks be to God! It’s not as often as I’d like that the two conditions coincide.
Did you see the supermoon? It was the last one for 2020, with the next being in March 2021. May’s full moon is called the Flower Moon for good reason, and this May’s mild Gulf Coast weather is producing some gorgeous blooms.
My daylilies and Easter lilies have been doing really well this past week.
I finished the project documented in last week’s Six on Saturday. https://dottieloveladyrogers.com/2020/05/02/six-on-saturday-recovering-the-roses/ Then I planted some things on either side of that Red Cascade rose: yellow lantana, purple coneflowers, daylilies, and dahlias. I can’t wait until they’re all grown-up and blooming this summer.
For those of us living out in the county, it’s not against the law to burn rubbish, since we don’t have city trash pick-up, and our garbage service doesn’t take yard debris. We had built up quite a large burn-pile, so we enjoyed sitting by the fire one day this week.
I’ve spent most of the week outside, and less time on social media. I’ve watched the birds and squirrels. I worked hard, within reason for a 60-something woman. I’ve let the good tired feeling soak in and enjoyed seeing the fruits of my labor. I have rejoiced that our state is opening up for business again. I’ve prayed and studied. Whether under the umbrella on our deck or on the patio under the trees, I have marinated in the happiness of my own back yard.
Proverbs 17:22 A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
