It is another beautiful morning at Purling Oaks--sunny but coolish with a light breeze. I find mornings like this very soothing but inspiring. They are a gift to enjoy in this moment and to remember when I'm in a less perfect time and place. I'm still recovering from the yuck, so this must be a "get well soon" moment from the powers that be.
There is a lot of blooming going on in the wilds of the BigRock garden. Here is a very interesting flowering bush/plant (?) that showed up this year. I enjoy the lemon-lime color of the foliage, which contrasts brightly with the darker greens of the other plants. This garden yields so many interesting flowers that I'm hesitant to try to bring it into some sort of order. Unfortunately, the beauty of indivdual plants is lost in the jungle of this garden patch. BigRock garden will have to be on my summer project list for when I'm working closer to home and have a tad more time for myself and my projects.
Of course, this cold/cough is certainly making me take time now.....flat on my back or sitting on the couch time. It has given me, though, thinking-time to think about me, which hasn't seemingly been available lately. Time to think about what direction I want to give myself and what influences I want to accept or to discard. It is a never-ending process, of course, but I feel I'm re-positioning myself after being bumped out of alignment by recent life events.
