While the world is falling apart
My neighbors and I are building
Relationships, gardens, and ideas
In our little corner of the world
We are making the most of each day
That we have to build friendships and
Create beauty while we can
No not burying our heads in the sand
But focusing on the positive
And ignoring negativity
We live sensibly in unity
Praying, trusting in theLord and doing good

I seem to be obsessed
By all the colors of Spring
Bee in my bonnet
I can be found snapping pics
In random neighbor’s yards
Today it was so nice out again I just had to take a walk down the block to check out all the neighborhood yards to see how much Spring growth had appeared.
Well I was pleasantly rewarded as one neighbor had an abundance of vibrant
crocus blooming. The bees and I were happy and one even paused for a pic😊

Bloom where you are
Haiku Horizons Weekly Challenge Week #221 Prompt: Plant
Based on the quote, “ bloom where you are planted.” By The Bishop of Geneva, Saint Francis de Sales (1567-1622) and made popular by Mary Engelbreit)
Sturdy, staunch, old fashioned flower
The staple of gardens in spring.
Your beautiful blooms last into fall
Three seasons of color you bring.
A true bloomer are you.
A plant so easy to grow.
Many a Gardener calls you friend.
Geranium, you, I am proud to know.
