Just a short post today. I'm back with my beautiful, colorful, flower motifs. I've taken quite a few pictures of flowers lately around my house. I was inspired by the beautiful pictures that my friend Walt takes at his home in France.
My blog posts tend to lean towards my natural propensity to complain. I also post a lot about entering this new (and last) phase of my life as I age. Most of my other blog posts are about trips down memory lane.
What I try to avoid is posting about politics and religion. To me posting about those two subjects is like spitting in the wind, you're not going to change anyone's mind and you end up with your own spit on you. Of course you understand "spit" is the nice version of what I really mean (you can figure that out.)
So I find it is a "palate cleanser" to occasionally post a picture of the many flowers, plants, and wildlife that I am fortunate enough to have in abundance at our home here on the flat coastal shore of southern Delaware.
The picture I'm posting today is of the clematis flower. I love these plants because they are so easy to grow, have such lovely colors and always bring a smile to anyone's face when they see them. Bill put a white fence around the transformer out in front of our house. I planted several clematis plants around the fence to soften the sterile lines of the fence. I like purple and Bill likes pink (which he calls "pank").
Have a great day folk!
