Blooming freely...

To freely bloom - that is my definition of success.
Gerry Spence
Joy blooms in a clay pot outside my back deep shades of purple, with mystery and sometimes magic...and usually in spite of me! This simple joy is a success by any definition.......blooming freely, again and again......tiny velvet trumpets waving wildly in the winds of summer...a welcome home sight for weary eyes on a late summer evening....wilting slightly from neglect by mid afternoon.... and dancing proudly after an evening visit from the garden wand, to the strains of oldies from a vintage radio in our never fails to bring a smile to this sometimes cranky old woman. A steadfast reminder of the lessons to be learned from the simple joys in life...of finding joy in your own backyard... of blooming where you're planted.. of not loosing sight of what's important...and how tending your own garden, watering your own soul.....can make you bloom freely too!
