Sometimes looking at pretty flowers is just what is needed to lift my spirits, especially when standing in a bleep-storm without an umbrella. These are the variegated New Guinea impatiens, finally flowering lovely pink.
What is it sometimes, with people you don’t really know ascribing feelings to you that aren’t even remotely true? Recently, I received a barrage of hurtful and insulting emails from an acquaintance, someone with whom I have had little contact. I had offered her my help with a project, but she burned that bridge quite thoroughly stating she neither needed nor wanted my involvement. That was weeks ago, but then things changed and she now wants my assistance – on her terms. Ah, not gonna happen. Let’s look at the interesting dahlia blooming now.
One dear friend advised that I ignore her and not respond to her emails, but that hasn’t worked for her to leave me alone. She is sending me emails every day, wanting a response, which I will not answer. I will not engage with this person again. I asked another friend to intervene, and hopefully the emails will stop. In the meantime, doesn’t the pink geranium look nice with the white lobelia?
I am not a perfect person. I make plenty of mistakes and I have evidently irritated her at some point. But when I offer help, and it isn’t wanted, just say “no, thank you” and let it go. Don’t make accusations of my intent, or tell me how I feel. The torenias are doing well, aren’t they? They are trailing already after only a couple of weeks.
Can you tell this still bugs me? The yellow torenias are blooming their heads off in both containers.
OK, time for me to try to let it go. The blue lobelia is flowering profusely too.
The Super Belles are coming along as well. These are such happy faced flowers. Feeling a bit better already.
The petunias look pretty with the variegated coleus. These should get prettier as they get bigger.
Taking some deep breaths, putting this behind me, and remembering to be grateful for my true friends and faithful readers. Thank you.
