This I’ve Learned

I WAS THINKING…
since I’m sheltered at home, I’ve swapped my treadmill for walks in my neighborhood. All these years I’ve never paid much attention to the houses near me. I mean really looked at them. I didn’t know the house down the street now has a red door. And flowers, so many yards are blooming with gorgeous flowers. How did I miss them? I saw paved driveways and unique landscaping. But I also noticed a house around the corner was in need of paint and maintenance. It made me realize how long it’d been since my house was painted. I took a close look. My painter is coming next week.

WORDS OF WISDOM
It’s not about the cards you are dealt, but how you how you play them.

Don’t be bogged down with details.

GARDENING HINTS 
(Taken from Easy Does It-FC&A Publishing)     
When trimming thorny plants, wear padded oven mitts to protect hands.
Cover the ground around tomato plants with black plastic trash bags. The extra heat will make the plants grow stronger and fuller.

    Again lots of wisdom and chuckles. Your advise re being more observant makes us appreciate beauty otherwise missed: a red door, blooming flowers, attractive drive ways. Turn scars into stars, can’t recall hearing that, a good line for grandmothers. I’ll have to use the oven mitts for trimming roses. Think they are too bulky for using clippers, but sometimes thorns get the best of me, so I’ll give them a try.

    Wonderful, wonderful!!! All good but the one that hit me today is the cards that we are dealt and how we play them. Good advice. Not ready to throw in my hand so I will play carefully with what I have been given 🙂
