Spending time in the garden was soothing
|These plants bring forth a beautifu showing in the evening/at night|
|Hardy marigolds that survived soil that's not ideal, heat and drought|
And working with the plants and soil reminded me that there are things in life that I can control .... and mistakes that I have made that I cannot fix and the only thing left is to manage the consequences..... and then there are things that I cannot control at all, not even manage the consequences thereof. All I can do is accept that bad things happen to good people, and good people make bad mistakes.
I could try to be "proactive" and wage a battle to try to reverse things I can't control, but the action will just keep me busy, make me feel like I was doing something, but in the end, the result will still be the same. That is a hard pill to swallow.
|They grow almost all four seasons so I never have to replant the bed|
