trying to start a new habit

by posting something everyday or close to it, close enough to remember I ought to be sharing something. I have so much abundance in my life and want to share it, but I get so wrapped up in other things that I keep putting it off.

Here is a favorite flower of mine and just love these little gems of the springtime gardens.  (Look pretty cool with this WordPress snowfall too)


I once answered an ad (back when those were pretty much just in newspapers) for some pots or something. something that had to do with gardening. As I drove up this womans driveway the sun was right in my eyes.  I slowly pulled up and around this stone wall and right in front of me were brilliant, dazzling,  purple sparkles just gleaming in the sun light…. here was this row of purple hyacinths growing on the top of this retaining wall that led up from the parking area to the womans front door.  You couldn’t help but fall in love with little beauties.  I kept reaching out to touch them as I walked up her stairs.  she had them right at face level most of the parking lot up.  Just incredible and I’ve tried to grow them everywhere I have lived since.

Grape hyacinths are very easy to grow from a bulb planted in the fall.  They send their low growing  slender long leaves out every fall. Those get buried in the snow and come spring (usually around Easter) out pops a wonderfully heaven scented delight.  Did I mention the fragrance before?????  Oh my just like purple would smell, kinda like a juicy purple Popsicle.

They are also very easy to force indoors.  Just a plate of pebbles and water touching the bottoms and you’ll soon have these little gems blooming inside while the winter winds are howling (as they are doing right now outside my door).

Maybe that’s what encouraged me to post about them.

peace n abundance,


would look lovely in a baby’s nursery

    I saw them for the first time when my sister gave me one last year. I was so surprised to see at a closer look how cute they are, there is so much “happening” inside the little bells.
    Merry Christmas and happy new year to you and your family CheyAnne.

    Interesting to read the word ‘abundance’ as that is the word I wrote down this morning in my personal diary. That and how I’d like to do more consistent blogging in 2013. Sharing more of the flowers and wildlife I encounter up here on my hikes. Happy New Year!

    Abundance is a word I have been using now for 6 or 7 years and it’s so fitting. I try to give thanks for all the abundance I have and what is coming each and every moment. Very powerful word I know you will enjoy it too.
    I love to write and blog I just wish I did more of it. Your blog is always enjoyable because we are at 8000 ft too and it can be quite challenging, but rewarding when it goes good. Just wish we had more water.
    peace n abundance,


I would love to hear from you, thanks. I also really enjoy knowing how you came across my little piece of this world wide web we live in...
