Aren't these pretty?
I think I planted them last year. They are in the flowerbed in front of my house and for the life of me I can't remember what they are called. I still think they are pretty though. :)
Today was downright chilly in my neck of the woods. I tell you, a few days of 70° - 80° weather and I'm ruined. If it gets below 60° I'm putting on the second layer. As a matter of fact, I'm wearing a sweater as I type, with a little space heater and a hot cup of decaf, to boot.
I did a bit of people watching today. It can be very interesting. If you haven't tried it, you ought to, at least once.
You see all types; old, young, straight, round, short, tall, happy, sad, confused... all types. I always wind up looking for a familiar face. Sometimes I find one, sometimes not. Often times, I'm inspired with words. That's when I reach into my handbag and pull out a small notebook and pen and begin writing.
People are great for inspiration. You see a couple interacting and depending on their facial express and their body language, a story will begin to emerge. Or you see a single person strolling along and again you can begin to see a story unfold.
Today, I was beginning to be inspired, but then was distracted and by the time I got back to it, my inspiration was gone like a vapor on the wind - no more.
Oh well, that happens but the show goes on and people keep being people, so I know there are still stories out there.
Hope you have been inspired this week in some form or fashion.
God bless and keep you,
