Sunshine on the Fountain

This morning, as I was peering out the window to see if any of our herd of deer had snacked on the hosta overnight, I was struck by the beauty of how the sun was hitting the fountain.  I've learned that hosta is like crack to deer, and I'm on constant battle alert to stave them off.  My militant mood instantly softened and I took a moment to savor the world instead of battling nature.

I was already in a bit of a snit, because our recent very heavy winds had left a lot of debris on our newly spread mulch.  I became grateful that no trees had fallen.

And I totally had my panties in a bunch over the landscapers cutting the wire to the fountain, so no water circulates......thus.......yucky water.  So the sun seemed to point out to me that all was not lost.  We still had a lovely fountain with a statue that I love, and the means to make the repairs.  And the hosta was whole!  I needed that attitude adjustment.

Now, on to the last four of 96 bags of mulch I have spread this spring.  Seeing the end of THAT project will certainly help my attitude!!!

  4. Linda....I have just read back about 10 post and don't let anyone tell you....that you can not set the most beautiful tables!!! Lord. Each and every one is fabulous. I was partial to the one with the eggs. ....just because that soft blue is one of my favorite colors :). Of course I did love the one for bridge on St Patty's day. So creative!

  6. When it rains it pours dosen't it!! Well the fountain is gorgeous anyway. I have too many hosta to count but we don't have deer here in our neighborhood-just outside the city limits. Your property sure looks gorgeous and thats a LOT of mulch.

  7. Beautiful fountain statue. Yes, mulch is a lot of work to get spread, but I do love the results.
