Preparing For Fall Flowers

October 18, 2021

Reflections, Day 10

Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the earth.”
― Henry David Thoreau. Walden

I was in a quandary.

I had to find a place for these pansies that I have for my clients.

And since I knew that in a week or two the impatiens in the back flower bed will turn to frostbitten mush, I decided that it’s time to take them out. That would give me the room I needed.

I kept finding something else to do while I enjoyed the flowers for a little while longer. And then I just went over there and did it. Dekie and I moved the trays of plants into the vacant spot and we stood back and grinned.

In the gardening world, timing is everything

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/
