There really was a light at the end of the tunnel....
and thankfully it wasn't a train! after a lot of soul searching i finally broke down and called the in-laws and asked for a loan....the generosity of these sweet people helped me end a garnishment to mark's pay, catch up on the utilities and begin to put the pieces of our troubled existence back in order..the depression that has smothered me for the last year has lifted, even if temporarily, and i am more thankful than i can say...so now i am tasked with the unenviable task of cleaning up our financial house and keeping it clean! I haven't had the heart to work in my flower beds, i'm not sure how much of this slovenliness i can blame on depression and how much i should attribute to just being flat out lazy!!!Occasionally mark will bend over and pull a few of the larger weeds out of the front beds when he's passing by, notice i said "occasionally" just like we "occasionally" have a blue moon..anyway there was this tall looking "weed" at the end of the front bed just on the edge, it was a little taller than the coreopsis planting and definitely had a different type of leaves but the dear boy decided to leave it there...i kept an eye on it just out of curiosity because i thought it was some sort of volunteer dropped by a benevolent bird..low and behold, this wayward "weed" has shown itself to be a heliopsis-"Summer Sun" i purchased from a mail order "workshop" that i refuse to name b/c i wasn't happy with quality of the plants i received 6 years ago and will not give them publicity either positive or negative....the 3 heliopsis i bought that season promptly died on me and i never saw any again...could someone be trying to tell me something???just when you least expect it something beautiful can and will happen in life and maybe in your flower bed too!...i wonder if this flower is an indication that good things are coming our way...maybe the light at the end of the tunnel was just a little "Summer Sun"
