Grand Finale of Summer Flowers

Reflections, Day 13

“To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.”
― William Blake, Auguries of Innocence

“It ain’t braggin’ if you can do it.”

—Dizzy Dean

We went to Martha’s house to fix an irrigation problem. I grinned really big when I saw her flowers out front. It made me happy that Martha was grinning big too. “It seems like everyone who passes on the street slows down or stops to admire the flowers,” she said.

Beverly posted a picture of her flowers for us to see. She said pretty much the same thing.

This sort of thing is what I look at as a fringe benefit from my job. I have really been enjoying myself this year

—and having fun.

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 publishes a daily motivational quote and a personal comment. I write an article a week for my blog, 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

One thought on “Grand Finale of Summer Flowers

  1. I really like the emails and gardening stories you’re sending each day. Great quotes and lively narrative make me think about the stories all day. A collection of these is going to make a great next book!
    All the Best,
