The absolutely fantastic thing about growing flowers is you love ’em up and they love you right back. It’s Mutualful!
Mutualful (Mutually beautiful)
What makes something beautiful
A reflection, it’s mutual
I love you
You love me, too
Greetings to the sun
Each day is new
Flowers… their butterflies plentiful
Coruscating around at will
Fantastic from dawn to dust
Bright-eyed and stupendous
Reminders to us
Of what is wonderous
Wildflower gardens, sunflowers, roses and even weeds when watered and fed by the sun are what I call self confident and strong—full of good posture, successes, and able to withstand strong winds and downpours. Radiant and brilliant.
I allow them to be what they want. Free to grow in all directions. Take the sun on full out or rest beneath a shady section.
Made from seeds, or tiny bushes, and so pure. They are loved and cared for and happily thrive. Butterflies are attracted to them and their colors are bright. Birds want to be near, their glow attracting attention. This brilliance is for everyone who understands their beauty, for all eyes to see.
Walks in a room, it’s as if…
Someone turned a light on !!
I love homeschooling my garden (enrichment and just the right amount of attention) where nothing can affect their growth and beauty. Healthy neglect. Creative growth. No helicopter maintenance will create a garden this authentic.
The ability to grab water and air, and worship it—relishing the bright sun and blossoming into extraordinary goodness.
Tall stalks or tiny flower bed covers take over a corner or cover the whole place with their beauty. Freedom to reach their full potential.
Sunflowers with black-eyed susies in between
Shows me what love really means
Wild roses and all sorts of things
Poppin’ up—it’s what rain and sunbeams bring
Remember when you were a child and you would look out the classroom window and couldn’t wait for the bell to ring for recess? To get outside—that’s how it feels to have a garden. There are some days I eagerly anticipate the time when the rain will stop or the sun to come up. School, work and play are all of huge importance. Adults need their own recess time too.
Stillwater beside me
Right as supposed to BE
Kickin’ serious booty
God’s rays, deep blue sea
Makin’ everything look easy
My flower power heart bursts
Next up, new firsts
But as much as I marvel at the effulgence of my garden and the rays of light it brings to my days, I’m from Florida and we cover up with hats.
Leave your hat on, mm hmm
Straight up, slight slant
Like it all the ways… ohhh man
Tippin’ up the brim
Skippin’ the strap on chin
Keepin’ edges curved or trim
Sweet however you got it
Right on, homerun, a hit
Full cover—or a little bit
Cap, derby or helmet
Bein’ you, best bet!
It’s all about the complementary things that work together to complete each other and keep the balance.
“The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, education and his religion. He hardly knows which is which; he simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”James A. Michener
