Our Little Yard
14 People Got To Be Free Enjoy the Music!
Seriously, who’s idea was it to work five days on, two days off in the busines world? Do you think we could schedule a conference call with that person!
05 Wildflowers Enjoy some nice music!
So, I’m sitting on my porch here, enjoying the day on a work day! Yep, I have a scheduled day off for some necessary appointments. The day is just PERFECT! Me and Savannah decided we would come in the porch since I couldn’t see my computer screen outside in the sun! It is just glorious! The songbirds are singing merrily, there are little ripples in the pond, the trees are swaying just slightly and the wind is filled with summer sounds! I could really get into this!
My NEW Living Easy Rose
So, I have SO much to do! I thought that I would rush home before my afternoon appointment to vacuum and do other chores. Then I thought, oh, I could…(ah oh, Savannah does not like these hawks gliding overhead! My peaceful girl does get worked up every once in awhile!) OK, where was I….I could work on some jewelry….wait till you hear this story! But, it’s springtime, and I’m such a flower girl, so I chose none of the above!

My NEW Living Easy Rose
So, I sneaked off to the flower nursery on the way home from my morning appointment. I picked up some of the most beautiful flowers alive! (Well, no that’s not possible, there’s a trunk full waiting for me that I haven’t gotten yet, another day!) Then I had to go to get a shovel, bury the evidence before the big guy gets home! This always happens when I think I’m going to sneak something in, I wind up needing help because it’s too heavy or the ground is too hard! (It’s not as bad as my venture to Pasquesi that one time! It was like…Mike would you help me get something out of the trunk…and PLEASE don’t ask me how much I spent…it was one of those BEAUTIFUL stone upright pots on a pedestal, OMG gorgeous! He looked at it and said, you’re right, I don’t want to know….YES, he liked it!) Nursery rendevous’ are as dangerous as gemshows, which by the way was last weekend! (Yikes on that one too!) So, I planted the couple of small fowers, but, gulp, I will have to have the big guy help me with the “Living Easy” Rose Bush that I just bought! The color is glorious! And, how could the ground be so hard, we had so much rain….could it be I haven’t been lifting my weights lately! See, that’s another thing I’m not doing right now either!
I know that I am in the right business, because I am so driven to things that are beautiful! Right now it’s “Tea Forte” Wild Berry Hibiscus, Organic Tea, (teaforte.com) that I am sipping on in a tall boldly colored stripped mug! The porch has a couple of wicker chairs, lovingly worn, in great need of some new cushions to spruce them up! The wrought iron garden cart has a beautiful pot of big softly shaded apricot, blush pink, and coral orange begonia plant! They have the darkest lushest green waxy leaves and all the flowers are happily bursting open soaking up the sun! Next to them them are Lantana! It’s a beautiful plant with dark green veined leafs with the most perfect group of sun loving little circle clusters of little tiny flowers. These flowers are native to warmer areas of the country, but I buy it every year as an annual. The little flowers are such a delight! I get a color that is a cluster of hot yellows, corals, blazing orange and lastly a warm beautiful red! The cluster colors change daily in these shaded warm colors as the flower cluster matures. If you have never had these in your garden, you should! It’s one of my favorites!
I must say, I do believe most of us feel this way! In my free time, it’s filled with Eenie Meenie Mynie Mo, what do I do next! There just is not enough time for everything! If I want to get all my chores done on the weekend, there isn’t any time for fun stuff! Then there is gardening, and jewelry making and cooking, all of which I really enjoy! But then, there are times like these when I can’t help but be in awe of nature! Above all, this is the most natural way one can feel in harmony with the world! Sitting here, enjoying this day filled with the songbirds, the swaying trees, the birds gliding, the hustle and bustle of the little creatures scurrying along the wooden deck planks and the sweet cool wind are the times I really believe….life is good!
So although, I do love making new jewelry styles, if you don’t find anything in my LindaGeez shop that is new, please excuse me, I might be in the garden!
When you are free to browse and enjoy some great jewelry styles….check out my shop in Etsy – LindaGeez and LindaGeeztoo! It’s my favorite pastime to make jewelry….but in the springtime…you may catch me in the garden!
