Sunday Thoughts

As I looked in my flower bed yesterday, I spied this clump of grass.

grass clump/spider lily

I grabbed my shovel to remove this unsightly mess.

I knelt down to remove it and saw something.

Sticking out to the side was some Spider Lily foliage.  A beautiful, unique flower that blooms without question during the heat and humidity of our summer.

Had I not gotten on my knees, I would not have noticed.  It would have been tossed and abandoned in the field.

There is a lesson here.  It doesn’t necessarily refer to flowers, but it was found in the garden.  Next to the dirt.


And Amen.

About the blonde gardener

I'm an Arkansas girl born and raised. I garden in the beautiful Northwest part of the state (zone 6b or 7) surrounded by the Ozark Mountains. My favorite part about the area is we have 4 distinct seasons and are able to enjoy a variety of activities. My main passion is gardening but I also enjoy hiking, birding, 4-wheeling and motorcycle trips. Basically anything outside. Thanks for stopping by! Brenda

  1. Yup, half of gardening is close observation.


  2. Is there some grass in that clump, too? I don’t blame you for grabbing the shovel unless that’s the way the spider lily looks in early spring.


I'd love to hear from you!
