Sparrows, veggies and the last rose of summer on the path least traveled….

Diary from the path least traveled…

Hello Diary,

A pleasant, sunny Saturday to behold today…just popping in to share a few brief thoughts before shutting down technology and venturing down the path least traveled…. my grandson and his lovely bride are getting married today…would have liked to have been there but, alas, circumstances were not favorable…will be there in spirit….hope each and every day of their lives is filled with peace, love and happiness!!…

Glanced a wee bit at the “dark side”, the news…see Trump is being the typical arrogant bully, doesn’t know how to work with people.. threatening this one and that one…like a good number of people, can stay in the safety of home and “talk the talk” but don’t have the back bone to “walk the walk”… mostly an illusion created by fancy, false words… myself;
“I have a greater peace of mind by being straightforward and truthful about myself and letting the chips fall where they may, rather than to wake up tomorrow morning and have to deal with a falsehood I told yesterday.” (Larry Woller 7-30-2017.)

Managed to accomplish a great deal last week with the weather being pleasant… managed another batch of zucchini and green beans, two pounds of each…

Will taste pretty good this winter.. 😉 also did a bit indoors, moving little tablet and setting up a “classroom” of sorts..better to work on my Spanish and other things….

While outdoors doing tasks and dealing with the vegetables I ventured into the water gardens and saw the lilies in full bloom.. There are four small ponds altogether, fish being in the larger one but have lilies in two of the ponds… one pond has a red one…

The other pond has a white lily..

While in and out of the house I noticed it were feeding time for the little sparrows…with the large birds mostly gone, the sparrows are out in force…in the following picture there are near 40 of them…

I have a small brush pile next to the ground feeder, loosely stacked, and at the first sign of danger, every one of those little birds will disappear in the brush pile in a flash… 🙂 use to have an occasional hawk put in an occasional appearance but not so much any more… 🙂

It is near middle of August and soon will start leaving summer and going into fall…there are already signs of that while I was venturing out… saw the shells of Cicada (sometimes erroneously referred to as “katy-dids” because of the noise they make)..

When they are in unison, one can hear them all over town…. the veggies are starting to fade also, probably will not get many more…also the rose bush is nearing the end of its lovely blooming…

last rose of summer

Alas all creatures will have to deal with the same destiny, our adventure in life to come to an end, our “blooms” to fade away..but;

“Dying is merely the process of transferring from mortality to immortality, from one state of being to another state of being, from one dimension to another dimension, etc. depending on one’s personal beliefs… however, one should not dwell on the hereafter much or one will miss all the wonderful moments of the present… “ (Larry Woller 8-7-2017).

Well, better sign off and prepare to enjoy the day and weekend before the start of a new week and new adventures…a new adventure around every bend on the path least traveled…but I shall return one day, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise…

Yes, one day in the future, I too shall become the Last Rose of Summer…
