Green thumb

Jilda and I walked over to our niece Samantha's house yesterday evening as the sun was setting. She'd never grown a garden in her life until this year. The virus put her out of work, so rather than sitting around brooding, she planted a garden.

I think she was as surprised as we were that she has a green thumb. Her garden is amazing.

We stood and talked for a while as we swatted at gnats and mosquitos, but before we left to walk back home, I snapped a picture of her patch of flowers. It looks like a painting at the end of her garden.


  1. I hope that she continues to garden. Solace and beauty never go astray. For any of us.

  2. It is enjoyable to see someone with a green thumb and use it. And for us who haven't, we can at least absorb the beauty.

  3. Good for Samantha for growing instead of wilting.


  4. Samantha's garden is truly splendid.

  5. How beautiful ! She definitely has a green thumb.

  6. I would have sworn it was a painting! What a garden, what a photo.

  7. Flowers always brings joy that's why I have so many flower gardens.
    I'm glad Samantha is enjoying her newly discovered green thumb.

  8. The photo & flowers remind me of a Monet....lovely!
