Bertha’s Hydrangeas…


I always say…it doesn’t take much to make me happy…and…while I know that isn’t true on many levels…I do love my creature comforts…and clothes…and shoesand…well…you get the picture…I don’t think anything touches my heart…and…brings me true joy…as much as nature…

Today is my birthday…and…when I went outside this morning…I discovered that it had rained overnight…which was a nice gift from nature…because…I didn’t have to water…but…it also left everything looking so beautiful…

Right now…my hydrangeas…are particularly prolific…which reminded me…last fall…I almost…inadvertently…cut off their spring buds…but…even though I had the pruners out…I had a gut feeling that I should research it…before I snipped…

So…today…as I look at all those gorgeous blossoms…I’m so grateful that I listened to that…still…quiet…voice…that…said…wait…stop…that isn’t the best thing to do

I wish…it was always…that easy…to hear the voice…to listen to it…and to see the results…unfortunately…in my life…it’s fuzzier than that…I hear the voice…I call itBertha…then…I tussle with it…is that really what I’m hearing…how can I be certain…why can’t I just Google this…and…the results are more nebulous…because…I can’t know for sure…how things would have turned out…if I’d gone the other way…

All I know is…I’m really making an effort to listen more…and…to act on…Bertha’s words…and…every time I look at my abundant hydrangea blossoms…I’m going to remind myself…to trust her more…this is my proof…that she is right on…

  1. A big happy birthday to you today Miss Jane! What a beautiful gift from Mother Nature – a day of rest from watering – AND – magnificent beauty!

    I wonder the same thing… why isn’t it always so easy to hear that voice – and to trust what it says? Why do we think we always know better than it?? Sheesh…

    • Thanks for the birthday wishes…it was such a delightful gift to see everything wet and happy this morning!

      We’re getting there…we’re getting there!

    • Christy…I have a feeling I have a lot in common with your mom…

      Love the rain…in moderation…of course…it does such a much better job than I can at watering my plants…
