Share Six: April 2021: Growth

This month’s theme was chosen by Liz of It’s Still Life Photography by Elizabeth Willson. The theme is “Growth”

In the last 8 weeks I have grown in ways that are hard to describe. When you receive news that is heart stopping you have two choices, to fall down or grow up. I had to grow up. But it is hard to put that kind of growth into images. It is the heartbreaking, soul destroying news that leaves you wondering what is next. Next becomes day to day. How do I do day to day, I am not sure.

I have taken up gardening. Not by choice but because it has become a necessity for me to take over responsibilities that Richard cannot do right now. I really don’t enjoy it, but it has to be done so I have done it. Last week I picked up all the leaves, and weeded the garden. This week I cut both front and back grasses. While I was outside I spotted these flowers shooting up from the ground. Emerging out of my gardening experience, is my theme {Growth}. The best part about it is that my Sims came out and joined me while I was lying in the garden taking the pic.

Some years ago we must have planted Amaryllis bulbs. I recall getting some in a vase and when the flowers died we planted the bulbs in the garden and forgotten about them. Just like the St Joseph Lilly’s, the Amaryllis blooms around Easter time. This year they are a little early and the St Joseph Lilly’s are a little late but they open up into such beautiful plants that I was so happy to capture them while they were in their growth stage.

Growth happens and we have no choice but to go along with it or falter. We as a family have chosen to grow with our current situation and to embrace each day as it comes along. Tomorrow is a new day and we want to make the most of each day so that life is made up of memories that we can enjoy and embrace.

This is a circle blog and as I mentioned, we have some very talented ladies in the group. The sneak peaks are stunning and I cannot wait to see the rest. Take some time to follow the links and see what they have for you this month. My incredibly artistic friend Kathy of KG Ledbetter is up next is up next. I would encourage to have a look at what she has to offer. You can see more of her work by clicking on her Facebook page or Instagram page.
