Yes, even superheroes stop in their tracks in amazement to do a double take of the color that reigns in front of our home. Well, at least I was amazed. My garden was blooming when I left for Arizona, but I was so surprised at what I viewed when our car pulled up in front of our house after a week long hiatus. The flowers were bursting with color, especially the roses. What can I say, "It's spring!" Many of the blooms were far spent. I obviously needed to do some clipping and pulling off old blooms. It's so difficult to cut back all that color, but really that's what needs to done to keep the flowers coming.

I Have a Garden

"Sing With Me" G-18
I have a garden, a lovely garden,
With flowers blossoming ever fair;
Where sun shines brightly and rain falls lightly,
And breezes gather sweet fragrance there.
Songbirds come singing out of the sky;
Butterflies winging, hovering by;
And in my garden, my lovely garden,
There's always beauty to greet the eye.
I have a garden, a secret garden,
Where thot's like flowers grow day by day;
'Tis I must chose them, and tend and use them,
And cast all wrong one like weeds away.
Goodness and love are seeds that I sow;
God up above will help me I know,
To keep my garden, my heart's own garden
A place where beauty will always grow.
If ever there was an affirmation, I hope that my blooming garden will be a reminder of what my thoughts and heart should be.
