I couldn't help myself
I went outside
into the garden...prednisone or not
I'm finished with them anyway...last pill last night
I still itch a bit....but's 80 out there
And I was rewarded
I think I cried 3 times over flowers
and my body went into an altered state
of joy...just sitting on the concrete garden bench
so many birds singing right over my head
Oh Lordie it was ecstacy
for this garden starved woman
and my beloved bloodroot
Oh how I love them...such happy flowers
poking their heads through the debris of winter
Now I have the itch to plant and mess around in dirt
but it is way too early....nasty trick being played on us here
Tonight there is supposed to be a storm...There go those precious white petals
But I broke the rules and saw them today in all their glory!
.....and this was my confession


  1. I think that your garden did you more good than the predisone.
    Lovely little flower...
    Glad you are feeling better.

  2. Sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well, Suz. Sounds like Mother Nature is trying to lift your spirits before the next grey storm arrives. I love reading about the joy and ecstasy your garden brings you.

  3. It makes me happy that you broke the rules and got out for some lovely weather. The warm wave is over like it always does in March.....a week of heaven followed by a cold front that sets the mood back about 3 months. Bummer....but I'm glad you went outside. Those flowers are lovely. Have a good weekend. Chris:)

  4. Even for March, which is frequently magical in it's whimsy
    and penchant to amaze,
    this has been a March to remember!
    So glad for your shot of B-12 garden joy to your soul:)

  5. I'm glad you're feeling better! But I'm like you, I'm resisting that urge to get out into the flower garden, but am going to leave everything for now, just in case. So for now I'm enjoying the warm temps and dreaming! :-) Take care of yourself!!

  6. I love Bloodroot! One of my favorites at The Center. That and Wild Ginger. Oh ... and the sweet little candy-striped Spring Beauties. Oh ... and Trout Lilies!


leave me a line of joy
