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.”
“Never worked and never will.”
