June 3, 2013: Purple Pleasure
Dead tulips have been replaced and overtaken by the new seasonal color. Landscaping is a wonderful thing, isn't it? I am anxious to see if the colorful cannas have sprouted in my far back yard yet. They are a new addition and should reach a six foot and full of color by the end of summer.
After a long day of airports, work, and meetings; the initial greeting from my silent greenery friends was welcomed. The voices waiting for me in the house were even better. Grant, you are definitely better than my tulips; hands down. His smiling face with newly installed braces was actively conversing with relatives as they prepared a celebration for Aunt Joan's birthday.
Cake, ice cream, and conversation at the table was a perfect way to be reminded of a house full of warmth; the good warm. Any edge remaining from a busy day was quickly gone and forgotten. Sitting back and catching up with loved ones and sharing life is the real life pleasure.
