Tuesday’s Thoughts!

Happy Tuesday! It is a beautiful, sunny day here. The flowers on my porch are still alive, which is surprising, for I have had them a little over a month now. Flowers don’t typically survive that long for me! Perhaps they will make it through the summer. Surprises do happen!

May your week be filled with sunshine and perhaps a few good surprises! Enjoy the quotes!

    • Magical, eh? Sounds like Number 6. πŸ™‚
      Glad the quotes brightened your day! It is fun to choose them, It is fun, even though this sometimes can be the post that takes the longest to do! There are so many good quotes out there, but they aren’t always easy to find. I am no where near being a perfectionist, but when it comes to this post, I do like to try to find just the right ones!

  1. Tuesday’s Thoughts are pure delight, smile inducing and a source of inspiration. I’ll choose #7 as today’s goal and favorite. About those flower plants on your porch, good for you…”Where flowers bloom, so does hope.” – Lady Bird Johnson. My outdoor gardens do well without the need of much help from me which is exactly why they survive. As Michael P. Garafalo said : “Despite the gardener’s best intentions, Nature will improvise.” My poor indoor plants are dependent upon my care and for the most part they survive in spite of me, not because of me. My window shelf is rather bare at present due to several plants recently becoming victims of my ineptitude. This is not for lack of trying as I have two books that should have made me a bona fide “Houseplant Lady”, sadly they did not! “How Not to Kill Your Houseplant : Survival Tips for the Horticulturally Challenged” by Veronica Peerless was the first book purchased to cure my failed attempts. A little more than a year later that was followed by “How to Raise a Plant : and Make It Love You Back” by Morgan Doane. No doubt both books have made others proficient at maintaining houseplants. However, I seem to lack the ability to transfer the skills imparted on their pages to the actual plants. All is not lost, the books look very nice on one of my bookshelves! Thank-you!

    • HI Ellen! Great to hear from you again and you have me laughing! I don’t think there is a book out there that can help me! My Mom had a super successful “green thumb”, our house always had plants and flowers blooming inside and out! But sadly I did not get that gene! Glad to know there are others out there like me. πŸ™‚
      Hope you are doing well!

      • My Gram once quipped that I could kill an artificial plant. There was some justification for her having said that, as I had managed within three months to kill almost all of her numerous potted ever blooming African Violets that had been successfully nurtured for many years. There survived but one valiant pot, and that only because my Mother rescued it from my blighted fingers! The Green Thumbs were well developed on my Gram and my Mother, but entirely skipped the next generation. In the following generation, my Son is the original “Plant Whisperer” with bountiful gorgeous indoor and outdoor plants of all sorts. It was he that purchased the second book for me, but alas the plants do not love me back. As suggested by him, I do talk to them…mayhaps it is the sound of my voice that is the problem, as opposed to what I am saying! Though not true for my plants, at present all is well with me as I hope is also the same for you. Thank-you!

  2. #7 made me think, especially “grace over grit.” We’re always told that we should be tough and have more grit; but I agree that sometimes it’s better to just stand back, go with the flow, and let ourselves be open to grace.
