A beautiful sunny day!
a few perennial buttercups at the feet of the iris and alium
yesterday was dismal........
but today is inviting!!
Following a little after-lunch nap
we left Bruce sleeping
and The Walker and I
went out for a little stroll
(as much as you can 'stroll' with a Walker -
but that's the way things are these days!!)
There are some lovely light lilies in bloom
a perfectly wonderful yellow.....
and the early peony is showing signs of
calling it a day, while the later ones
are still pregnant, - growing closer every hour!
A few early white daisies are crowding in
amongst the clover that persists on growing
at the front of the flower bed, just
beyond the fence (that needs painting)
And the yellow daisies show dire signs
of the problems that afflicted them
which means I must seek expert advice
and get them sprayed, or they will
all curl up and die.
The garden needs attention,
but not this afternoon.
I am here to enjoy the few roses that are blooming,
the poppies that are pushing against
their white metal fencing,
and to pick a few flowers to
brighten up the house.
Not an awful lot to choose from
but soon I had a nice selection lining The Walker's basket
and here they are....
placed in front of the "arrival mirror".....
an old dresser that fills the bill nicely,
and makes one think that we have just twice as many
blossoms as the garden yielded.
Off to make a cup of tea, or a glass
and I shall sit outside and glory
in the late spring.
at 95 one must take advantage of the beauty
that cometh from above....
Just in Case.....Carpe Diem.
