The Linear and Inspirational Mix


Soil, well, it’s a lot like the people who might happen upon this blog. It’s comprised of various types so a general rule of thumb is to test and amend the mix if we must. With that said, yesterday I spied a follower who sheepishly admitted to following my posts. Being an engineer and a guy, he needed to tell me he’s a linear type so the inspirational entries, although he still takes a peek, isn’t what this burly sort needs most. “I’m looking for technical.” So here’s one for those linear types straight from the Annie archives. No sense reinventing the wheel when we’ve already created the spoke.

P.S. I’m glad for all types of soil and readers. And I appreciate each and every single one who comes here. So now that the Monday morning thank you note is checked off the list, the signature part of this blog is always wrapping in a quote. John O’Donohue, an Irish poet and philosopher clarified this linear and inspirational mix best. “When time is reduced to linear progress, it is emptied of presence.” There’s one for you to ponder over the course of your Monday.

And for all of the New England readers out there, we must face this last winter storm. It could make that first day of spring look a bit wet or white, depending on your location. Do yourself a Monday favor and buy a bouquet of flowers for yourself or someone special. It makes every day look a bit like spring.

Do you know what the unusual-shaped flower is in the image? If you follow here, you should. It’s one of our favorites. Follow tomorrow – it could be another Annie archive posting to jog your memories. For those who know, I hope you followed the recommendations and planted it (or intend to plant it) in your perennial borders.
