October Flower Beds

Reflections, Day 7

“The earth laughs in flowers.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Jane made me smile yesterday

She sent a picture of her back yard flowers with a note that read,

“My back yard is STILL beautiful.”

With all the rain we’ve had, the flowers are exceptionally nice this year.

I especially like this garden because I started it a number of years ago for previous owners, who loved it but grew older causing it to fall into disrepair later on. We restored the garden in the spring of 2020 and it has turned out rather well.

The Japanese lantern is a small remembrance of Jane’s departed husband, George Slickman. It has a small light in it that comes on at dusk. Jane always says, “Good evening, George.”

I lost my vocal cords a while back due to throat cancer. The laryngectomy sent me on a quest to find and learn to use my new, altered voice. I am able to talk now with a really small and neat new prosthesis. My writing reflects what I have learned in my search for a voice. My site johnschulzauthor.com publishes a daily motivational quote and a personal comment. I write an article a week for my blog, johntheplantman.com which deals with a lot of the things that I do in the garden. I am also the author of Requiem for a Redneck and the new Redemption for a Redneck--novels portraying the lives and doings of folks around the north Georgia hills. I have an English Education degree from the University of Georgia and very happily married to the lovely Dekie Hicks. You may enjoy my daily Quotes and Notes at http://johnschulzauthor.com/
