Someone asked me for advice last week. Now, that might seem like small potatoes to some of you, but for me it's a large baked potato with butter AND sour cream. Oh, I get asked for advice all the time, but it sounds like this:
My ride will be here in 30 seconds; I can't find my shoes! Do you think we have to time to go to the mall and buy a pair?
So when my friend asked my advice, we both cried a little. I cried because it felt so good to be needed for something other than my debit card. She teared-up because she was withdrawing from some medication.
Her request got me thinking of all this knowledge I have been acquiring for the last half-century-ish. It used to be nicely catalogued in my brain, but now it's kind of having a free-for-all up there. That must mean it's time to Spring clean a little. Perhaps if I share some of that hard-earned knowledge with you, things will quiet-down a little in my brain. And, no. I will not use anymore hyphenated phrases for the rest of this post.
Today's advice ~
If you really want to appreciate the flowers in your yard, don't overdo it when it comes to planting. An entire bed of blooms will simply detract from the true beauty you might otherwise experience. Thus, you should plant judiciously and opt for a minimalist approach. That is why I have planted TWO bulbs. Imagine our joy when they blossomed into full beauty this week!! The love those flowers have received from this family is tremendous.
