Wednesday: More Gardening

I spent another hour and a half in the garden, after work, today, weeding one of the large flower beds and watering.  The only areas that are getting watered are the flower beds and so, that's where the grass is growing.  The "lawns" are more or less dead.

As I weeded, I watched a hummingbird hover over some of the flowers and listened to the songs of the other birds.  Later, as I watered, the hummingbird flitted in and out of the spray of water, taking a shower!  

I enjoy time spent in the garden, weeding, watering, planting, etc.  I get sunshine and fresh air, birdsong and the fragrance of flowers, some gentle exercise, time to think and meditate.  My mother loved to garden and I feel her spirit near me, whenever I am out in the garden.  And yet, I don't spend enough time out in the garden.  It seems like there's never enough time to do everything I want to do.  

This picture was taken earlier in the spring - when things were still nice and green.  All the grass has since turned brown. 

Today, I am grateful for:

- Time spent in the garden
- Hummingbirds
- The fragrance of lemon blossoms
- Fresh lemons from the garden
- Water for the garden

How was your Wednesday?  Do you wish you had more time to do everything you want to do in a given day?


  1. So much to do, so little time. But as long as the important things are done, that's all that matters. I stood at the window today watching a hummingbird fly around one of my bushes :-)

    1. Jess, you are right - as long as the important things are done, then, all is well. :)

  2. Oh yes Bless.. I really need a few more hours each day.. I NEVER complete the things I want or need to do, in a day..
    But so nice, you were able to see and appreciate what the garden offered you today..
    Have a blessed week.

    1. Judy, I think it's because I have so many different things I want to do. But it was nice to spend time in the garden - I did a bit more weeding, today, too. Hope your week is going well, too.

  3. You are so right Bless! Even though I am no longer working outside our home I still feel theres not enough time in the day to do everything I want to. I guess thats human nature and we'll always feel that way. Your garden is lovely. Am so glad that you still get the water ration you need to maintain your beautiful roses!

    1. Carolyn, I guess we'll never complain we don't have anything to do! :D I'm looking forward to the day when I can retire, so I'll have more time to do stuff around the house and garden and my crafts and hobbies.
