Sunday roses

roses 6.22.17 PA

How wild does their garden grow

wow I don’t know said Mr Crow

For years now I come to explore

each passing year brings new colour in the rows

 see the roses are in full bloom right now

&  cherries are forming on the trees

come back in a week or two

the Saskatoon berries will be a feast

bring friends, this garden is here for us

nice meeting you Mr Crow,

my  name is Jay

in a flash of blue he was off

cawing as he flew

I’ll be back to  see you soon

Rosco chuckled as he flew higher up the tree

life is good when

 friends drop in showing appreciation and enjoy their visit

he liked being called Mr. Crow

Mr. indeed, and he chuckled some more

could he be getting old

in full voice, he cawed and called out

Happy Sunday everyone!

why?

Why?

I tried, I wanted to

I even brought my pens with me, I planned it all, the lined pages,

pristine white, blank pages,

for days I even  practiced the different styles of lettering

anticipation high, time to doodle and write.

Yet when I got to where we were going,

Not once, did I use the pens to practice my lettering

The pads of blank pages, came home empty.

Why?

It is the journey, the living each day that is important, obviously, while away my time was filled with happy moments, new discoveries,  a sense of adventure and of course, the cherished company of a wonderful husband and our two frisky “canine children”

Thursday Doors -2.9.17

Interesting door, the little house was nestled on the main street of a small town in Ontario. It begged notice.  I was intrigued with the half seen figure  that could be seen from the road.  A charmer on an otherwise ordinary street.

instead of being weed free

this year, this garden patch was left to be

 what a surprise to walk by and find

that the fall colour

and nature’s design

presented such a pretty sight

for my eyes

truth be told

I got bold

and asked that I be given a sign

on what to have for supper

what I was given

was a package of frozen clams

sigh, not really what I had in mind

but I did ask

img_1949

so here it is

clam, fresh okra on a bed

of fresh Japanese noodles

enough said

I’m off to partake

of the bounty on my plate

see what happens

when left on my own

no questions asked

you get

the mix and match

that rolls around

in my cluttered head

have a delightful day ahead

till then

smiles will bring my day to an end.

cement – rock -concrete

When we had our new fence put in, we had to remove a cement/rock border along part of the driveway.

I see the pieces every time i come down the driveway, and for some reason, I am not wanting to just “get rid of them”.. they stand there like our own version of Easter Island “statues”.. waiting… watching.. standing guard

img_1928

There are still pieces like this along the front edge of the property.  They  have been there for years, and are very much part of the landscape.  the  iron fence seems to be very much in harmony with them.           They just “are”

You can just barely see the top of one if you look along towards the fence.  Not wanting to disturb the blue spruce the rest of the edging will stay where it is.

11th. Ancestors’ Day

white-bridal-shower-flowers-2s

On the 11th of every month, we celebrate ancestors Day.  through this ceremony we express our gratitude for the love and virtues of our ancestors, and those who have contributed to our lives in a way that has shaped us into the person(s) we are today.

I speak often of appreciation, and gratitude, why because it is important to realize and remember that we do have much to be thankful for.   I thank the Universe every day for the blessings in my life.  I am alive and able to experience the joys that come my way.  Sometimes I don’t realize it is a joy, I “react” but.. in the long and short of things… usually, almost always, I come to realize that the obstacle or challenge was a gift.

Sometimes we forget how wonderful something is, till it reappears in our lives.  Be open to the “adventures” that come your way.  Believe that if it is “in your face” there is a good reason for it.
