For Everything There Is a Season
For every thing there is a season, and a time for every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate;
A time of war, and a time of peace.
To everything turn, turn, turn...
( Where is Ei? )
Our yard is re-turning to it's normal lushness:
The Gingko is recovering nicely, but the Red Leaf Japanese Maple may be a goner ( it is hidden behind the power-pole Dogwood in the above pic. )
The back yard looks good:
The Wild Flower bed has really filled in, including the zapped Hostas !
The side yard looks good. Even the Dawn Redwood is filling out again. It is visible against the end of the house.
And wonder of wonders...the Louise Odier Rose has 4 open blooms and more to come !
I am soo happy that my Evelyn Rose is putting out healthy new growth. I had to prune it severely...but that may have been a good thing. :-)
More plants came home with me yesterday. A 6-pac of mixed alyssum, a 4-pac of Lobelia Riviera Blue Splash ( I LOVE those lobelia!),a Pteris ensiformis 'Evergemiensis' (Variegated Brake Fern),and 2 Solanum Jasminoides aurea. I was looking for more Euphorbia 'Diamond Frost', but it was sold at out the nursery, and I didn't go to Wal Mart or HD.
I 'thought' I was done buying plants...but I guess not ! lol
I was thinking about how forgiving nature is...not only vegetation, but also pets. When I accidently shut Trubby's tail in the sliding glass door he only avoided me and the door for a few hours. He and Tommy are like little children....quick to forgive and forget. :-)
" Except you become as little children...."
Nolon finished installing our new pond pump and pressure tank yesterday. As you can see by my today's pics, we are overcast again, and more rain in the 4-6 day forecast, so I won't be needing it for awhile.
My sympathy is extended to all who are ailing, and/or have loved ones (including pets) who are. I hope all have a nice Memorial Day weekend.
