Planted Where?

Not a master gardener by any stretch of the imagination, but I love containers with green and colors flowing over. What you and I don’t see is the spidery roots warm and cozy down in the soil. Drinking up moisture and nutrients and anchoring…

All Times…

Sometimes I let people down. Do you? Sometimes I let myself down. It’s gotten harder in our world of instant everything. To take the time to think before we speak, act, react – seems archaic. So there’s face time, instant messaging, texts, and more….

Security Alert…
