Not Such a Rosy Week

May 06, 2016

For the first time in a very long time, I haven’t had the time to get a new gardening post live for our readers first thing Friday morning. Being consistent in sharing news, tips and great gardening images has been a goal I’ve been proud to meet for many, many months now. Alas, a cellphone meltdown followed by a computer hard drive crash lead to days without technology. Couple that with racing to move our home and offices, and, well, I think you get the picture.

Wild Rose

Fragrant wild rose blooming fragrantly on a very warm spring day at the Breazeale Interpretive Center upland Meadows.

What was rosy? Visiting the Breazeale Interpretive Center at Padilla Bay before the technology meltdown began. It was a very hot day, and the upland trail meadows were buzzing with life: swooping swallows, flittering butterflies, buzzing bees and a multitude of gorgeous, fragrant wild roses.

I’m glad I took the time to stop and smell these roses. Thinking back to that lovely day when the rest of my world became a techno-disaster helped me stay calm and remember the world is still a wonderful place to be.

Thanks for your patience everyone. I hope to see you at the Spring Green Art Fest tomorrow, Saturday May 7th at 1:30pm, for my seminar Growing a Year Round Hummingbird Garden!
