Ordinary Days

Flowers seem intended for the solace of ordinary humanity.
~John Ruskin

I've been working on my garden, planting seeds and hoping and praying that all I plant grows.  I seem to have a great deal of faith when it comes to my garden.  Or, I just enjoy the surprises that spring out of the dirt - or in my case carefully prepared soil. I think the rabbits are enjoying some of these surprises too.  I actually threw a couple of stones at a rabbit hoping she would run off and not nibble on my flowers anymore.  She's eaten my verbena, my marigolds and my lillies.  She didn't budge.  And as my boyfriend said, "Who throws stones at bunny rabbits?" Well, apparently I do when it comes to flowers.  But the bunny didn't budge.  She loves them as much as I do.  I guess I'll have to plant more - some for me and some for the bunny.

I'm laughing--gardeners probably are tempted to do so! Rabbits drive me nuts sometimes--they'll chew the tops off of flowers and then leave them plopped on the ground! What's that all about? If they ate them out of hunger, I'd say, well,....but to just destroy them? It's like they have a vendetta against us. I'm forever chasing 'em away. They're cute--out of my garden! I love your flowers here though!
