Clockwise from top: lime green nicotiana, osteospermum, purple verbena, lime green and hot pink geranium, and purple angelonia
Clockwise from top (again cropped off (sheesh)): lime green nicotiana, black sweet potato vine, orange (although it doesn't look it) osteospermum, lime green/hot pink geranium, and purple angelonia.
You would have to be a hanging salami to not be affected by all the horrendous stuff going on both within our country and around the world. It's downright awful (or offal). Either way, it's depressing. Add to that myriad annoying, but nonetheless affecting occurrences like people's lack of manners, belligerence over the smallest of slights, and the public airing of personal disputes. Unfortunately, I could go on and on and on...but, and you can thank me later, I won't. We're all dealing with enough to merit the aerial spraying of Prozac.
What I will do, however, is what I can do: I'm going out there and I'm going to hold the door for people even if I have to wait; I'm going to wave-on the car across from me at the four-way stop; I'm going to smile at everyone I see and just for a few seconds, try to make my small corner of the world a sweeter place.
