Fool Proof Garden 💐

* 2016 holiday bouquet

Overnight Morning Glory seeds sprout with life

Pretty Daylilies* bloom in an array of colors yearly

Despite what you may think purple Pansy’s aren’t weak

Sunny Marigolds offer a safe bet for your money

Annual Impatiens grow quickly and require no manuals

Hearty Sunflowers stoop over to weep at the loss of heat

Perennials are sustainably preferred over Biennials


Inspired by flower power among other things, and I’m super excited about volunteering to work on a Rose Parade float tomorrow.

Holiday Propaganda

Have you ever stopped to ask why
It is that you buy into all the lies
Sold in countless advertisements
That infiltrate our daily way of life
Influencing more than what we buy
To purchase our holiday excitement

All for a great cause with a cost
Gift wrapped in our traditions lost
Manufactured retailed happiness
Artificially bought into the thought
That giving matters as we’re taught
So we greet the season’s nastiness

Where shall we begin, let’s pretend
Spending our time together ends
The purchase of lasting memories
Discounted for family and friends
Gathering with the love to defend
Blessings less financial jeopardy

Levels of Crazy

 

It never ceases to amaze me
How many levels there are to crazy
When you stand back and look
You realize it’s not a fictional book

Memoirs at fingertips, waiting
All the while I’m here anticipating
The backlash that has me debating
If the truth is even worth saying

The Who, when, where and why
Changed to protect innocent lives
From the incriminating evidence
To keep from being that elephant
