TP - Gardens Galore

Welcome to another
post for Carmi at Written Inc
our theme is

Gardens Galore!

A tad early for this view.

The photo below is the same flower pot, as it is today.

There is hope growing, right now.


Did you all enjoy May Day yesterday?
Actually, no matter where you look,
our whole world is a glorious garden.

Don't you think?

Well, maybe not everywhere,

Better things are coming!

"Life is like an onion;
you peel it off one layer at a time,
and sometimes you weep."
Carl Sandburg

My raspberry plant is growing strong,
 my mint plant is not willing to stay outside yet,
but it was happy to step outside to be photographed!

"Come clean with a child heart.
Laugh as peaches in the summer wind
Let rain on a house roof be a song
Let the writing on your face
be a smell of apple orchards on late June."
Carl Sandburg

Ever so slowly, everything is coming back.

Thoughts of a flower:

"To you, it was just picking flowers
To them, it was a massacre."
pleasefindthis, I Wrote This For You

"This garden is your life.
Of course, there are the occasional weeds,
but more than anything
this garden is filled with so much life."
Seth Adam Smith

and random growths where you'd never expect them to be.

"You can be a flower in somebody's garden
or a pig or the sunshine or a crow or a nightingale!
Be something nice in someone else's garden."
Mehmet Murat ildan quotes

Bursting with goodness for all to see.

"No one is ordinary
because every person carries
 the wisdom of his own unique path."
Mehmet Murat ildan

Thanks for stopping by,
your visits are special.
Take good care of you.

Sweetpeas need rain as well as sunshine. We had the rain, now let the sun shine warmly on you.

Love the 'life is like an onion' quote, so true. I hadn't thought of picking flowers as a massacre before Karen, will try not to think too much on that one 😀😀 Spring is present in your garden, lovely to see 😊

Great quotes - too many people massacre the flowers. The tulip is a promise of things to come, the raspberry plant too.
