Five Beautiful Things ....

Time once more for

Five Beautiful Things I Experienced on Thursday

  • The wonderful fragrance of the lilac bush in the back yard. In spite of the fact that the wind blew at a steady 30 mph most of the day, the backyard remained fragrant as I mowed the lawn.
  • The tiny white flowers on the bush of unknown origins in the from yard. As I mowed the lawn this evening, I was captivated by the delicate features of each tiny bloom each time I passed the bush.
  • The purple and white wild flowers that are blooming beneath the pine trees. They take the brown barrenness of the needle beds beneath the trees and turn them into colorful abstract paintings.
  • The wonder of coincidence. Today as I walked out of a business meeting, showing one of the attendees a sculpture by a well known local artist, I ran into the local college president and one of the town benefactors. So I got a chance to visit with both entirely by chance.
  • The support of friends and well wishers. My phone has been ringing off the hook with people congradulating me on my innocence and standing up for what is right in the face of threats. Makes the pain of the whole process a bit easier to handle. (Read about it here.)
(I thought about doing my five in photos, but by the time I finished mowing and cleaning up, the light was too far gone. Maybe next week.)


  1. Oh how I wish I had my flowers planted alas we have had 20 days of rain and storms so I haven't planted yet! And before the twenty straight days there was only a break of about a week!! Sounds like mowing can be relaxing for YOU! Well I have to go catch up on your blog now.

  2. I LOVE the smell of my yard when the lilacs are in bloom.

    I'm glad to hear that people are calling to congratulate you on your innocence. You must feel great!

  3. I like the idea of posting five things you saw on the same day. You always have such clever ideas. Glad to hear the truth was victorious. I'm following you least cyberly. Tell me if I start to get annoying.

  4. I agree, very clever idea. I enjoyed it very much.

  5. Love your description of the floral beauty around you! Glad that all went well for you.


You know you want to ... so just do it!!!
