Doesn’t it make you feel good of a morning when you draw the curtains back and find it’s a lovely sunny day outside?  Yes, alright, chilly, too, but it’s the sun that’s important.

With the aid of careful dead-heading, this sunshine has kept our polyanthus in bloom for weeks now.  Such a joyful sight in the planter just outside the kitchen door.  Our neighbours thought we were nuts when we planted them out, telling us the first frost would see them off.  Well, there’s not been much of a frost since, and they shrugged off what little they’ve seen.



The sun is immensely cheering but even so, I had a lousy night last night, and feel a bit like a damp dishcloth this morning.  Only one thing to do when that happens. Zzzzzh!

  1. enjoy those snoozes! damp dishcloth reminded me of my old favourite of yours, ‘rancid facecloth’, love it.

    Wow! I just did a site search to see if my memory was correct about the rancid facecloth, and it was, but look at the date! https://oldgreypoet.wordpress.com/2007/04/05/very-close/

    Apparently it’s just that time of year John 🙂

    Your flowers are beautiful. It’s always easier for me to get up if the sun is shining. I hope you feel better after your nap.

  3. Pretty blooms, has your neighbor seen they survived? 🙂

    Yes — there are two big planters of ’em in the front garden, Bonnie!

  4. Gorgeous blooms, John. There’s definitely a satisfaction to be had in proving a neighbour wrong, isn’t there?

    I’m still jealous. 😦

  5. Though flowers trumpet their color,
    And the sun doth shine,
    SAD propagates dolor,
    Maybe a nap shall be mine.

    Gosh but it’s good to hear from you again, Doug. Keep on keeping on!

  6. Lovely flowers! Our daffodils are nearly ready to pop!

  7. I’m not familiar with polyanthus, but they are really pretty and sunshine-y.
    And as for snoozing, it’s a great way to energize.


  8. man, we’ll be lucky to see flowers next month you lucky devil

  9. What cheery, happy flowers. They brightened my day.

    Welcome back, Denver Doug! Great to see you again.
