A little trite perhaps Blog Chics,
but never the less true enough.
I've been thinking a lot about gardens.
My garden in particular.
It hasn't been a spectacular season for the Granny's potager.
And she's been busily ripping out all her tomato plants.
Not enough sun.
They've all been smited by a botch or something,
although we have been eating the little sweet yellow ones.
The Granny is tremendously disappointed.
She is one of those gardeners that loves gardening.
I, on the other hand am one of those gardeners who loves gardens more than gardening!
I see gardening as a means to an end.
I see my flowers as still lives and vignettes that I can run together as a slide show,
or fuse in the moment inside my mind.
We both love to have masses of fresh flowers inside in vases.
Sometimes it's hard to decide weather to leave a lovely bloom to be enjoyed through the window, or to bring it in and smell it, touch it and enjoy its composition intimately,
but for a shorter time.
this year I succeeded in growing two hollyhocks.
One pink, one white.
They are magnificently deformed.
So I cut one and used the single usable bloom in my photo.
To last forever, or as long as the digital life of the photo.
You'll find it.
