Yesterday, to my dismay I discovered that my lovely hot poker plants that had just started blooming were a bit too tempting for the deer that visit my yard to leave alone. I’m so glad I got a photo before they met their demise. While I lost the hot poker plants, I am thankful that the large lily opened up. As with life, there are endings but also new beginnings. I will enjoy and appreciate my lily while I have it. ❤
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
I try to look for the positive in the people and situations I come in contact with! I believe in the power of positive thinking and I believe that even challenging circumstances can be learning experiences if we have a positive mindset!
I'm having fun blogging at: http://picturingpositive.com
I’ll bet the hot poker plant will return next year.
I hope so Laura Kate! My plan is to plant more deer resistant bulbs and perennials this fall. I guess if they are hungry enough, though, the deer will eat anything.
These are beautiful flowers! My wife would love these! And nice job with lovely Angele, Beth! It’s amazing that you keep making art continuously!
Thank you so much HiRO! Gardening and drawing are two of my passions. 😊 The art takes a lot less time, though. 😄
Yeah it is quite true that art is time consuming, but it is worth! And that’s why you keep doing it is amazing, Beth! Keep it up! 🙂
Perhaps your new exchange students will love gardening.
They seem open and willing to learn and try new things, so perhaps so 🙂 That would be wonderful!! 🙂
