My poor outdoor wooden frog has seen better days. I have too. At least his eyes still look rather bright, inspite of the blistery cold and windy day outside (here in the greater Seattle area). My eyes look strained because I woke up with a headache. After taking the dogs out at 6:30 a.m. and after feeding the chickens, I worked on a few art projects before going back to bed for a few hours.
I don't know what it is about being in a deep sleep that makes a person not want to wake up again. Perhaps that's a mere snapshot of what people with near-death experiences describe . . . when they utterly and completely do not want to return to their earth bodies after having been pronounced "dead."
Such experiences convince me it's not so bad to die -- that and the psychic messages I've received from the dearly departed who have a message to convey; usually to loved ones left behind.
When my body finally insisted that I must wake up, I went outside and did some gardening.
The primrose (pictured right) is so amazing because the slugs and bugs have continued to munch on it and its still very cold and frosty in
the mornings. The red flower prevails nonetheless.
While working outside, I transplanted new strawberry plants that are taking over the old garden. Since Artemis (the pug) loves to eat strawberries, Doug and I never had the opportunity to enjoy them last year. The new plantings are going inside a fence while some are being left in the larger garden for the dogs to enjoy.
The flower, pictured left, was a complete surprise. I love it when plants emerge from unusual places (such as in the middle of this walkway). May you, dear reader, be just as hardy as the red primrose and just as amazing as the green flower!
P.S. If you're up to reading about a weird experience I had with Calendula (Marigold) seeds, check out CyberCoven today.
