It’s a jumble for sure,
but the yellow fennel flowers caught my attention.
This evening I had to struggle to put
one foot in front of the other,
the whole long loop of my walk.
But when I got near the end and stopped briefly here,
gratefulness for this familiar but ever-changing scene
turned into courage.

God’s awesome creation has a way of giving us courage, just by our seeing and enjoying it. It reminds us of His great love for all He created, and to give Him honor and glory in all that He does and works out in our lives.

I know that struggle to put one foot in front of the other, so I’m glad you found fresh courage — as well as fresh fennel.
I went back to your post on fennel failure too and smiled becauseI just let our fennel grow into a large ornamental plant. I wasn’t really sure when to harvest it, don’t really like raw fennel even though I love fennel seeds in cooking. But I read somewhere that yellow fennel flowers are wonderful in pork dishes and apples and so they will go in with two pork tenderloins I’m marinating now for tomorrow night, with apples and shallots to be added to the pan. Meanwhile the yellow flowers are pretty seen through my kitchen window all day long.
And my goodness, Gretchen, get some rest!
Good for you. For me as well, getting to this place even if from a distance, and after some days of stumbling.
That’s beautiful, Gretchen. I’m glad the walk helped.
A sweet refreshing image — glad it refreshed you. I love that little patch of reflected blue sky.
I’m sorry your walk was such a struggle. I hope you’re feeling better.
Enjoying your posts! Love,
