A mason jar with zinnias in it! Honestly, this bouquet is so beautiful–the colors clash, but I don’t care. I picked some of the prettiest blossoms and put them in a jar that once contained spaghetti sauce, and every time I look at these flowers, my heart soars. It still amazes me that such beauty can come from tiny seeds, in such a short time. One of those ordinary miracles we all need to notice more often.
And, oh, the dahlias! My mom and I both love dahlias. I have lovely yellow, lavender and pink ones–huge and leafy and so gorgeous, and just a couple of months ago, they were bulbs.
Although it is still hot out, there are signs that fall is coming. I’m planning to put in daffodil and tulip bulbs, in anticipation of spring. And I’ve ordered rose bushes–mostly the English variety. They are lush and full and resemble peonies, my absolute fave, but they last a lot longer.
There are a lot of movies playing that I’d like to see. “Julie and Julia”, “The Time Traveler’s Wife”, and now “The One and Only”. When I finish this book, I may reward myself with a movie marathon. Buy several tickets and move from screen to screen, and gorge myself on popcorn.
Did I tell you we’re getting our own theater right in Airway Heights?? I can’t wait for that to open. We’re really hitting the big-time! Last year, a new Wal-Mart, and now a cinema?? Is there no end to this madness???
