It is now mid-week and I still haven’t gotten to any of the projects I had listed on my Monday to-do list. Yesterday, I drove 1 1/2 hours to my mom’s and went with her to a heart doctor appointment. I go with her to the appointments each time as an interpreter of the medical jargon.
Before the appointment we toured my parent’s garden and flower beds.
The important things in the yard, for my mom, are her flowers. She is the one who taught me to see “faces” in each flower. It doesn’t matter how old I get, I think I will always remember my mom in the garden, gently pulling a flower up toward me and asking, “Doesn’t it have a sweet face?”
So….here are some “sweet faces” in my mother’s garden……
My dad has other delights in the garden. He loves flowers, also, but prefers his vegetables and fruits.
Below are the delights of my dad.
But….the most favorite of all, for my dad, is to see a toad or lizard in the garden, and know it is eating the bad bugs that would harm his plants.
I enjoyed seeing the gardens at my parent’s home. Now…. back to the projects (I mean in the garden…hee hee).
I wonder what God has planned for me today!
