Last week the flowers I featured in posts were all pink; this week they are purple. This is the Wisteria that is blooming behind our garage beside my composting bins. I absolutely love it's beauty but it can and will take over if not managed intently and this has grown far beyond where I would have liked. It's especially hard to manage since the neighbors put up the privacy fencing and created a dead zone that neither one of us can get to so the wisteria just grows and grows.
The bees are working this quite intently and when I was out there taking these photos they kept checking out my violet colored shirt as well. The pollen has reached a status of MISERABLE and we are all living on Walgreen's brand of Zyrtec.
The mail was such a disappointment today - just junk. It all went straight into the trash. When we get everything paid off we will get hardly any 'old fashioned" mail. Perhaps I will start writing REAL letters once more; there is just something special about taking the time to sit down and compose a letter by your own hand and then mailing it to someone. A little note of brightness! Something you would not expect.... hmmmmmmm... I have a few minutes before I have to get ready for work. Perhaps I will drop my address book and see where it opens up and then write someone a SURPRISE!
