So, working on this organization and discipline thing with the blog (as usual) that will hopefully provide good content, learning for you and me, interesting dialogue and updates on my garden as well as assuring a good amount of photographs, consistently.
Here's the plan, feel free to comment and tell me if you think this is a good/bad idea:
-MONDAYs: Going ons in my garden
-TUESDAYs: Plant spotlight either in my garden, or of one of my interest
-WEDNESDAYs: Plant/nature poetry, sorry, need to get that creative urge out. If it's painful for you, skip this day
-THURSDAYs: Horticulture lesson, for my sake, I want to understand all those fun terms like pinnate leaves and crap
-FRIDAYs: Foliage, flowers and fruit photographs in excess for your weekend viewing pleasure (I hope)
So, I guess here's to kicking off my new Friday tradition!
The ornamental Black Pearl pepper is fruiting and looking gorgeous!
I love the colors of this pepper, the fade of red and black! Tiny spiders making webs between the berries.
I hold my breath as I take the pictures, one after another, not wanting to breathe because the inhalation of air would travel from my nose to my lungs, expanding my chest and raising my arms and moving my hands, ruining the picture. I begin to see stars and blackness creeping in at the edges of my vision. Beauty is literally suffocating me. The leaves, cupped up, catch the wind, cups of wind, holding distillations of air from who knows where. The leaves, full of wind, are able to move the entirety of the tree in one direction to another. The tree would travel and follow the wind if it could give up its rooty anchor, but it's content just to sip the wind that flows into its cups. I wonder if it would appreciate me digging it up and putting it on a well oiled wagon so that it might be able to travel with the wind as I can tell it yearns to, but it is too pragmatic and has set down deep roots. This is home to it, in my yard, and I am glad that it has stayed despite the bugs, despite my poor watering and neglect.
Have a great weekend and I hope your garden is doing better than mine!
