Blue-flower garden

blue-flower-2-670x375A romantic heart’s dream. One that I had forgotten since Lyme ticks and itchy poison ivy frightened me away from my own garden. Somehow, it came to life all by itself. Plants I had grown from seeds, flowers bought years ago at a craft fair, flowers inherited from former gardeners who have long since moved away. So that one morning, I walk down the driveway with a little more awareness than usual and there it is, my blue-flower garden, my long lost dream.

Sometimes, I guess it’s true: dreams become real when you have ceased going after them with all you’ve got. Sometimes, I guess, I need to let things be and become. It feels good to see that the world still moves when I don’t pay attention.

    Beautiful! It would be a dream come true for me too if I could get my garden to produce anything vaguely like yours. My garden is a pit of weeds and clay and slugs 🙁 And many other bugs but I’m in denial about those. Glad your garden thanked you for caring enough to plant things in the first place 🙂

      Well, my garden is not in a good shape at all either. We actually had to mow over some plants I had put in, because we were unable to keep up with the weeds and crazy grass growing in between them. We also have a nice spot at the entrance with a big rock and some (once) beautiful plants that has been overtaken by a curious creeper and by poison ivy, and it has become an incredible mess. I am trying to find a hazmat suit and go in there to rescue that spot 🙂

    What is that eight-petaled purple flower called? I saw some on our walk to the library and thought they were fantastic, but I have no idea what they are.

      I think it’s a clematis. I plan on digging it out and planting it in a more visible place in front of the house. The flowers are so beautiful.
