A Ray of Sunshine

As you know, I don’t exactly have a green thumb.

Previous posts have proven my point…

I do, however, enjoy watching flowers bloom, preferably in my yard, as you can see from pictures of summers past…

Let’s not discuss the fact that my grass is:   1) existent and 2) green in the above pictures.

This year, I was deep into my EPI classes when the weather became conducive for gardening.

Still, I had to wait…until around the end of May…before I had time to plant.

And plant I did…spreading out sunflower seeds and seeds of plants of which I don’t know the name of.

As of last week, nothing had bloomed.

It doesn’t help that I haven’t purposely watered my “garden” since the first week after I planted the seeds.

Apparently, relying on nature to water my plants whenever they get thirsty isn’t the best way to go.

Who knew?

Apparently I do…now, that is.

Anyhoo, I came home from errands one day last week and was struck by a spot of color in my front flower bed…

It was the ray of sunshine that I needed to infuse hope that my garden will produce more of such lovelies.
