Waiting


double hollyhock

Blue today. Nothing to say. Waiting for it to pass. As it always has.

Better than thoughts are flowers. Here is a glimpse of my garden.


fennel

dahlia


feverfew

rose

a daisy-type like gaillardia


Are you having a good day? I hope so. If you're blue, what do you do?

The comment moderation thingy suffers today from a Blogger Bug. I'm attempting to post your comments but alas, not all go through, and the comment link is off. Mr. Blogger refuses to reply to one's notification that not all is well. That's one way to deal with the blues: refuse to take note of them.

I was in the blue yesterday. I'm really hoping to be in rose today.

The flowery suggestion does help. I love the beauty of gardens. I went to see a beautiful Chihuly exhibit in Meijer Gardens while I was up in Michigan visiting. It was amazing!!!!

Beautiful flowers surrounding beautiful glass works of art. Definitely a highlight of my two weeks in the mitten state. :)

Chris, and indeed, it will pass! Maybe when you will read my comment everything will be all good. Look at the blue sky and those beautiful flowers, sit with whatever it is, breath in and out, smile at your sorrow because you are so much more then your sorrow! ... love and hugs :-)

The flowers are exquisite! I can share that I stepped in a big pile of crap this morning before my first cup of coffee. Tell me again why we have 10 rescue dogs? (hope that made you smile)

I'm having a good day, only been up a couple hours but so far it is a wonderful day. I will share some of it with you, here it is......... Did you get it?

The Bug said...

Ah your garden is lovely! I think we have that 2nd flower, but in white - we have thoroughly enjoyed our wildflower garden.

I'm not blue, although I guess I could be with returning to work after some time off - but a return to routine is comforting sometimes.

Here's hoping that you are NOT blue soon - perhaps you could aim for that lovely pink or orange on your flowers.

Dianne said...

Hey, get out here an WALK, go to the music in the park, listen to the hope for the flowers! See you next Thursday's poetry reading?

I hope your day goes well. Mine is good so far. Lovely flowers and photos.

Somedays the Blues come callin'...we just have to muster through somehow. I usually take pictures or read a good book. Sometimes crying gets it out and on its way. Put my daughter on a bus this morning for Leadership Camp. She'll be gone four days and I miss her already.

Terra said...

These flowers are very cheerful and I hope afternoon and evening finds you no longer blue, but rather sparkly. I have not seen a double hollyhock, wow! Feverfew is pretty and I have many volunteer feverfew in my garden.

Roxy said...

Such beauty in your garden lives! And in your soul, as well. Hoping some sunshine will creep in and tickle your fancy...

Hugs!

A poet recovers. Now that's good.

What a beautiful garden you tend there, Mrs. Poet. They certainly make my day.

Judy Sheldon-Walker said...

I approved some comments too that went into cyberspace and have not come back down.

I love your flowers.

Karen said...

Thank goodness it does pass, Chris. When I'm blue, I go outside. Seriously. I know that sounds simplistic, but it's true. I find it hard to concentrate on me when I'm in nature.

Your garden would distract me terribly. It's beautiful.

Hope all will be well.

Birdie said...

Just popped to wish you a beautiful happy day!!! :-)

I don't know what to say. :-) I'm having trouble posting on my blog this week too. I don't know if it's the overly hot weather or what, but I've been feeling quiet.

RNSANE said...

Your flowers are pretty and add a measure of brightness to my day but, for some reason, I am depressed. Not having enough money to pay my bills does that to me. Not working is so demoralizing. It's been too dman long. I need a job.

Blue? Loud music (singing along preferably). Walking. Cooking. Crying (who doesn't feel better after a wail?). And then more loud music.

These flowers are luscious. the dahlias and hollyhock, just gorgeous. What a beautiful array of garden delights.

Julie said...

Absolutely beautiful! I love it. I hope the only blue you're having today is a blue sky.

Mr. Blogger hates me. I left a comment above, but it's not showing up. Dern him!

Julie said...

Oh, duh. Comment moderation. Haha! I always forget who does it and who doesn't. Sorry, Mr. Blogger:)

Have a beautiful day, Chris!

Scott said...

one of the great things about a garden is that it has almost magical powers that lift the spirit, if one is open to the lifting :-)

Lisa said...

I do not have a green thumb. I do not have a garden. I don't even have ANY plants in my apartment. But I LOVE flowers. Flowers literally make me smile, make my heart soar, give me hope that there the world is filled with beauty and goodness...and love!

LOVELY PHOTOS
