I went out a few days ago to pull weeds (or dig them up if recalcitrant) and spotted one of my lavender bushes looking absolutely strong and beautiful! Originally there were three but the other two didn’t make it for some reason, making this one even more appreciated. I have another, older one near the house too. I noticed today that yesterday’s and last night’s rain beat it down but perhaps the sun will revive it. This is Spanish lavender, not the tall plants of Provence, but I appreciate them just as much or maybe more because they’re mine.

Once the weather and our health had finally improved, his parents and I took my grandson to the park where his perpetual energy found a better outlet than in a small, two-bedroom apartment. There I discovered signs of spring, one of which were a number of these small daisies in patches throughout the grass. I felt much as Edna did, only substituting “photograph” for “touch.” I fell far short of a hundred, but they certainly made me glad.

“I will be the gladdest thing under the sun! I will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one.”

This Arizona poppy is brought to you courtesy of the beautiful state of Arizona. The photo’s not from this year, but I’m hopeful I’ll be seeing lots more of them soon, maybe even a superbloom, something I’ve never been fortunate enough to see. In the meanwhile, enjoy the sunshine.
