I love this quote and it's so true. In the dead of winter, we have faith the spring will come. I have a plaque that hangs off a tree branch and says

"Faith is confidence in God when you do not understand"

which sort of goes with this quote.

BEAUTIFUL daylily Mary - what is it's name?

It's like the old saying -- when all else fails, God gives us hope. I like that too.

Vic, Mary sent me the quote, and the daylily grows in my garden. I think it's an unnamed seedling that I brought with me from Bardstown. My uncle played around with hybridizing a little bit but never got around to registering them, for him it was just a hobby. I call it Uncle Bill's Copper Penny, but it doesn't really have a registered name.

Be yourself, you can be no one else
I am thinking of those folks in the midwest, where it is raining, and raining, and raining. Rivers are rising, towns and farm fields are flooding, and they need to remember that eventually it will stop, the sun will come out, the water will recede and things will go back to normal. But meanwhile, they also need our prayers.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

One time years ago I wrote an article on DG about optimism. Gardeners must be the most optimistic people. We gather those little tiny seeds from our plants in the fall and we save them through the ravages of winter, babying them all the way, and then we dig a hole and drop a seed in the hole, bury it, and if it doesn't germinate, that seed that we babied all winter long will be gone forever. But we don't think of that. We simply have faith that if we add water and if we planted it in the warmth of the sun, that seed will give us food and great beauty and will reproduce itself over and over again. That's pure faith, optimism, that the rain will fall and the sun will come out and the soil will have enough nutrients to make the right thing happen. Faith in the unknown and optimistic hearts. Gardeners.

Be a good day maker! Smile!
Sharon, Vic and Mary, you've hit the nail on the head, as the old saying goes.
I couldn't add a thing to it.
Thanks.
