Monday Morning Or Mary In The Morning

When I started to write this post name  -  Mary In the Morning came to mind. Click here for lyrics.  The contemporary song was written in 1967 by American songwriter and record producer Michael Rashkow and singer Jonny Cymbal and was sung by many artists including Al Martino, Glen Campbell and Elvis Presley.  Just a little music from my era - long ago! Now you have your trivia for today!

I have heard the song many times.  ;-}

Anywayyyyyyyyyyyyyy -

Time To Throw Another Blanket On

This is a very large afghan that I crocheted many years ago. It is not only large but also quite heavy and very cozy warm. It was made with an acrylic yarn and has held up nicely through quite a few launderings. Through the years I have used this pattern many times. It has just enough variation in the stitch pattern to make the crocheting interesting and not boring. Perhaps, it is time to make another similar afghan. I will have to take a look at my yarn. I know I do not have to buy any!!!


Now, how about a little Sleeping Trivia?


And, a little Food For Thought!



Take Care of Yourself and Others.

What Is Your Position

How about a little Sleep Trivia today.  What was your position last night?

Trolling through blogland can teach you all kinds of trivia that you never thought you needed to know! I wish I could remember where I saw this bit of trivia so I could give credit. Description of sleep positions is something I had never seen before and find it  quite amusing.

I think my position of choice is a modified fetus position generally lying on my right side because my back pain is most prominent on the left side. However, since receiving the epidural injections in my left low back I am having less discomfort . And, I find that I am now able to sleep on either side but with my legs extended. So, I guess, it is a combination of fetus and log. 

 
Fetus: This is the most common sleeping position with 41% of people calling themselves Fetus sleepers. Fetus sleepers are curved, side sleepers with knees drawn up toward the chest; sometimes sleeping with 1 arm beneath a pillow, other times with both arms bent to cradle a pillow. More than twice as many women sleep in this position than men. People who curl up in this position are described as being emotional. Their relationships with others is often intense. Fetus sleepers are sensitive inwardly, but their outside display is one of toughness. They are gentle and kind, but often scarred from being hurt emotionally.

Log: This sleeping position, adopted by 15% of people includes lying on the side with both arms held along the body. These sleepers are easy-going, social people who like being part of the in-crowd. They are trusting of strangers, sometimes to the point of being gullible. Log sleepers are more carefree than others. This relaxed, symmetrical sleeping position represents the calm inner self of the sleeper.

Yearner: The Yearner is described as a side sleeper having a straight back, slightly bent legs, head cradled off center of one's pillow and arms stretched outward. 13% of people surveyed sleep in this position. The personalities of Yearner sleepers are the most complex of all the sleeping positions.Yearners are said to have a friendly and open nature, but they can be cynical and suspicious. They are slow in making decisions, but once made, it is tough to change. Yearners are devoted. When truly committed, they make the best of friends.

Soldier: The Soldier position is characterized by sleeping on the back, face to the ceiling, legs straight, and arms pinned to the sides or slightly moved outward. 8% of people sleep in the Soldier position. The personalities of Soldier sleepers tend to be reserved and quiet. They may not show them, but they have very strong internal emotions. Soldier sleepers do not like commotion. They set others and themselves to high standards. They are very loyal and committed to protect the people closest to them and they strongly value those bonds.

Starfish: The Starfish sleeper lies on his back with arms slightly to fully spread up wards and slightly to fully spread legs. The Starfish position is adopted by 5% of sleepers. These sleepers are outstanding listeners. This trait makes them a great confidante and friend - always ready to listen and help. Starfish sleepers do not like to be the center of attention.

Freefallers: Freefallers lie on their front side with head turned, arms upward, elbows bent, both legs straight or one slightly bent up wards toward the chest. 7% of sleepers are Freefallers. Their personalities lead them to be very intense, brash, and gregarious on the outside, but sensitive and nervy underneath - i.e. thin-skinned. They love freedom and do not like extreme situations or criticism.

Wishing you a Good Nights Sleep.

A Little Lesson About "The Thumb"

Can you see  The Mitten Michiganites have a way of communicating geographical location by using their hands!

The left palm is the Upper Peninsula and the right palm is the Lower Peninsula. All you have to do is to place your left palm above your right palm and you will have a Map of the Great Lakes State.  We spent our vacation in the vicinity of  The Thumb  in the Lower Peninsula specifically the south east area..



Does this next photo (from goggle images) help you to see what I am trying to explain? It was a lot of fun listening to "the relatives" describing to me where towns and cities were located by using their hands. I have never seen anything like that in the past. I love learning new things.


More about our vacation yet to come.



I hope you a having a Fabulous Day.

Happy May Day

Is this cute or what? Could you ask for a sweeter May Day basket?  And, look at the happy little messenger!

                                                                                      (Image by Pat Wendt - NAPP)

 Just a little trivia for you.  According to Wikpedia - - - - - - The earliest May Day celebrations appeared in pre-Christian, with the festival of Flora, the Roman Goddess of flowers, and the Walpurgis Night celebrations of the Germanic countries. It is also associated with the Gaelic Beltane. Many pagan celebrations were abandoned or Christianized during the process of conversion in Europe. A more secular version of May Day continues to be observed in Europe and America. In this form, May Day may be best known for its tradition of dancing the Maypole and crowning of the Queen of the May. Various Neopagan groups celebrate reconstructed (to varying degrees) versions of these customs on May 1. The day was a traditional summer holiday in many pre-Christian European pagan cultures. While February 1 was the first day of Spring, May 1 was the first day of summer; hence, the summer solstice on June 25 (now June 21) was Midsummer. In the Roman Catholic tradition, May is observed as Mary's month, and in these circles May Day is usually a celebration of the Blessed Virgin Mary. In this connection, in works of art, school skits, and so forth, Mary's head will often be adorned with flowers in a May crowning. Fading in popularity since the late 20th century is the giving of "May baskets," small baskets of sweets and/or flowers, usually left anonymously on neighbours' doorsteps.

I remember as a child, leaving May Day baskets at the neighbors door. It always was fun to run away before anyone would see us.


The following website entry on the May Day 2008 events in Devon, England provides some nice history and May Day photos. It  is simply great. I do not want to infringe on copyright laws. So, just check it out. You will not be disappointed.  http://melindaschwakhofer.wordpress.com/2008/05/03/may-day/  Be sure to scroll down to see the maypole "fibre art-in-motion".

Wishing you a Happy Day - - - Healthy and Warmer month of May, with no rain or snow!

They Are Blooming and The Sun Is Shining

Look at these Ice Princess white tulips. Aren't they elegant and stunning?



And, they aren't white with SNOW!  Can you believe it? These tulips were in snow one week ago!



This is such a strange year in the garden. It is difficult to know what is going on day to day. Some of my garden plants have been very unhappy with all "these goings on" in the garden. They tell me that they are very confused!  

Are you ready for a little trivia about Tulips?  By now, I think you know that I enjoy trivia. So, here goes.

"The tulip is a wildflower said to originate from Persia. In the 1500's tulips were extensively cultivated in Turkey, and because of their resemblance to the "tulbend" a turban worn by Turkish men - - - were called tulipan.

In 1562, tulip bulbs from Constantinople reached Antwerp by ship. Before the turn of the century, tulips had been such a rarity that only the wealthy in Holland could afford them; consequently, tulips became a status symbol for the rich.  However, by the 1620's, buying and selling tulips became an activity for merchants, and "tulip madness" ensued.  Tulip trading crashed in 1637 throwing Holland into financial ruin.  After the Dutch government enforced strict laws for cultivation and selling bulbs, the tulip became the national emblem of Holland." This info is from the Notes From My Cottage Garden blog.

I hope you are having a Grand Day and the SUN is shining where you are.

What A Pretty Lady

This "Earth Angel" sculpted by local artist, Thomas Baugh is one of my favorite pieces of garden art. In 1999, I acquired this lovely lady named Jaqualine. The artist's studio, Sea Breeze Studio, is in the Sierra Nevada foothills not very far from my home.

One sunny afternoon I stopped by his studio which is nestled at the end of a driveway that is lined with "Earth Angels".  I found him to be a friendly and very unique individual with my stories to tell.  After my visit, I took many friends to his studio to enjoy and purchase his "Earth Angels".


This lovely honeysuckle bush is just starting to bloom and it is planted behind the sculpture.  It is a bush and not a vine and I think the name is Lonicera 'Honeyrose'. Lovely! 




This is an excerpt from a newspaper article in 2007 - - - - - - - While living in Oakland 15 years ago, Baugh stumbled onto what would become his most successful calling-card as an artist - his "earth angels." Baugh says the series was born from practicing some new skills as a stone-cutter. "It was strange," Baugh recalled. "I'd conceived of a full bust, but once I'd done the face I wasn't really sure where the rest of it was going. I kind of just threw it aside and started something else. A few weeks later I just looked at the face again and realized it was already done."

Baugh's earth angels have been described as soulful reflections of peace. Over the years they've become tremendously popular, with thousands sold in California, as well as commissions coming in from around the world.

"Of course, as an artist it's always nice to know there's a market for your work," Baugh said. "But what I really like is selling them to people in our community. I know people around here work hard, and because of that, I've done my best to keep them affordable."


This is another excerpt from another newspaper article in 2008 - - - - - - - Just to the east of Main Street, in a quiet creekside hideaway on Eureka Street, are dozens of what may prove to be familiar faces. For the last 13 years, Thomas Baugh has sculpted the faces of people who are his friends and neighbors and turned them into "Earth Angels," which can be found in yards and gardens all around the county.

Baugh has been sculpting these striking pieces for nearly 20 years, but didn't come up until recently with the concept of reproducing his "angels" by using reconstituted stone in molds made from the original sculptures. This process made it possible to sell his works for less than $100, rather than thousands.

Following a circuitous personal odyssey, Baugh happened into Sutter Creek to join his friend, Kim Wilcher, on a bronze foundry project, then just stayed around.

In addition to the "angels," Baugh molds faces, creating life-size masks of vivid likeness to their subjects. For about $125, he will make an original mold from alginate, the same innocuous, non-injurious material used by dentists to make impressions. Copies are far less expensive, making it not unfordable to give a mask of one's face to all the relatives for Christmas.

Baugh has a Masters of Fine Arts degree from West Virginia University and has taught art at both the Florida Keys Community College and WVU.


This "Earth Angel" is named Nicole. If you think back to around the year 1999 (when I purchased this) there was a famous murder trial that was in the news practically non-stop for many months. This inspiration for the artist came from one of the victims in that trial. I think the intricacy of the small leaves around the face gives it additional charm.




Another Earth Angel named Brittany is hanging from the eave of my garden shed.







Yesterday  I worked in the garden before the next storm came in. And, this morning sure looks like the weather man is correct. Yes, STORM. I thought this was Spring Time ! ! !


Have a Fabulous Day.

White Hyacinth

The White Hyacinths are blooming in my garden  and I am loving them!


Facts About Hyacinths

•An ancient Greek legend describes the origin of the Hyacinth. Two of the gods, Apollo and Zephyr, adored a handsome young Greek called Hyakinthos. Apollo was teaching Hyakinthos the art of throwing a discus.
 Zephyr, who was the god of the west wind, was overcome with jealousy and he blew the discus back. It struck Hyakinthos on the head and killed him. From his blood grew a flower, which the sun god Apollo named after him.

•The wild Hyacinth is a native of Turkey and the Middle East, along the eastern shores of the Mediterranean. Hyacinths were grown in Europe in the time of the Greeks and Romans. Both Homer and Virgil noted the sweet fragrance.

•After this, the Hyacinth faded from history, and did not reappear until the 16th century when it was reintroduced into Western Europe from Turkey and Iran. Leonhardt Rauwolf, (a German doctor) collected some Hyacinths when he visited Turkey in 1573.

•Hyacinths have been cultivated commercially since the second half of the 16th century. They became very popular in 18th and early 19th century Europe.

•The bulbs are now grown commercially in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. In the Netherlands Hyacinths are also grown as cut flowers.

•The common garden Hyacinth is cultivated to a minor extent in the Netherlands for the perfumery trade. However, most Hyacinth perfume sold is synthetic, based primarily upon phenylacetaldehyde. Hence, the Hyacinth is also called the Dutch Hyacinth.

•The normal bloom time for Hyacinths is March to April.

March 7th is the World Hyacinth Day.
•In the Victorian language of flowers the Hyacinth flower symbolizes sport or play, and the blue Hyacinth signifies sincerity.

If you are a gardener, I hope you are enjoying the spring flowers as they awaken one by one in your very own garden.

Who Are Demeter and Persephone



How is that for a title. Any guesses?

First of all, this is the first day of WINTER.  Does that help?

Well, let me tell you the story about Demeter and Persephone.  "According to Greek mythology, they were goddesses who ruled over the growth and death of the earth's vegatation.


One day, Demeter, goddess of all growing things, could not find her beloved daughter, Persephone. For nine days she search and asked after the child, but no one had seen her.

On the 10th day, Triptolemus told how the earth opened up and a chariot drawn by black horses appeared and disappeared, the drivers face obscured but his right arm tightly clasping a struggling maiden.

Demeter then knew that Hades, god of the underworld, had stolen Persephone, probably in collusion with his brother Zeus, ruler of the gods.

Demeter refused to return to Olympus, home of the gods, and wandered the earth, lamenting her loss and forbidding the trees to yield fruit and the fields to bear grain. Gifts and sweet-talk failed to move Demeter. Zeus was powerless to save the race of man.

Zeus sent a message to Hades, and they agreed to release Persephone if only she had not eaten the food of the dead. Persephone, though sorely tempted, had not eaten a bit from a crust of bread nor a sip of water.

Their ruse having failed, Zeus and Hades were obliged to release Persephone to her mother's arms, when a gardener appeared, claiming to have seen Persephone eat six seeds of a pomegranate plucked from Hades orchard.

Demeter remained adamant. and Hades was forced to release Persephone. Save for 3 months when she would rule with Hades as Queen of the underworld.

It is during those 3 month that nothing grows while Demeter mourns the annual loss of her beloved daughter Persephone. And that is why we have WINTER."

So, there you have it. Just a little more trivia!


These lovely pieces of garden wall art were  given to me by a friend who included this story of the origin and inspiration for the artist.

Happy Holidays,

~Mary~

Has School Started


---in your neighborhood?


In time past (and not all that long ago) it seemed as though school started about the same time of year no matter where you lived in the United States. How times change, and they keep a changing! They say (whoever they are) that change is good. You be the judge.


When the school bus starts going by my house every weekday, I can be sure the kids are saying "Darn, summer is over". Perhaps, they say it a little more colorful!

And, now it means homework every evening if you want to get good grades. That is another change from times past. I do not remember homework until going to high school. I think some homework is good. But, all to often, it seems it takes hours every evening just to keep up!


Just my two cents worth. It's probably not worth more than that!


PLEASE DRIVE CAREFULLY
AND WATCH OUT FOR CHILDREN.

Pink Passion


Just a click will enlarge the photo.

How did that "little dog with pink jammies" sneak in there. I know Lily likes my garden, but come on now. I must speak with her about this, don't you think?


I really like putting these collages together with all the pretty flowers. It helps me to realize how many different pink flowers bloom in my garden each year. It kind of surprises me that there are this many. And, there probably are more.

"Brighter pinks are youthful, fun, and exciting, while vibrant pinks have the same high energy as red; they are sensual and passionate without being too aggressive. Toning down the passion of red with the purity of white results in the softer pinks that are associated with romance and the blush of a young woman's cheeks. It's not surprising that when giving or receiving flowers, pink blossoms are a favorite. Pink is the color of happiness and is sometimes seen as lighthearted. For women who are often overworked and overburdened, an attraction to pink may speak of a desire for the more carefree days of childhood" according to color expert, Kate Smith.

HOPE YOU ARE FEELING "IN THE PINK" TODAY.

How Day Lilies Lost Their Longevity

Isn't this a beautiful day lily? The name of the day lily is "Joan Senior". It is a near white flower with a yellow and green throat that is 6 inches across, ribbed and lightly ruffled.



I came across this story about day lilies in my garden file. I have had it in my file for a long time and do not know the origin of the writing. I find the story to be very whimsical, but at the same time interesting, especially when I note the title of this blog - Everydaydelight. After you read the story, you will see how the blog title partners with the story!

How Day lilies Lost Their Longevity


Thousands of years ago in the heart of the Orient, in a kingdom that has long since disappeared from the earth, there grew a flower - - a delicate and fragrant lily called aionioncallis meaning "beauty forever". It received its almost unpronounceable name because of the amazing longevity of its blooms; picked or unpicked, aionioncallis lilies remained fresh and bright for years, often outlasting the people who gathered or grew them. To give you a better idea of how long these amazing flowers did remain unwithered, imagine a modern plastic flower's life, and multiply that by a hundred!


Furthermore, these lilies were so strikingly beautiful, so pure in color, so very fragrant, so downright elegant that everyone grew them in their gardens and included them in festival flower arrangements.


No one enjoyed aionioncallis lilies more than the beautiful Princess of the Royal Family, who loved to wander daily through her garden, which, incidentally, contained nothing but her precious lilies, in all colors. Although she was very conscientious in caring for her aionioncallis, the Princess was careless about almost everything else. In fact she had a very annoying habit that drove her parents to distraction; this otherwise delightful girl seemed incapable of doing anything promptly. She put things off, kept on putting things off, in spite of all parental reminders, urgings, and threats. She put off feeding her peacocks, put off writing her than you notes to her relatives, often put off even coming to dinner. All these normal obligations of a royal princess she kept procrastinating, to the helpless dismay of her parents, of her subjects, and eventually of the gods who controlled all their destinies.


Although the princess's bad habit did create much annoyance in the kingdom, it caused no real pain to anyone until she received her first proposal of marriage. An attractive, well educated, courteous, and very athletic young son of a neighboring king had heard of the princess's great beauty and way with flowers, but had not heard of her bad habit. Promptly he wrote her a long letter, presenting his credentials as a prospective groom, and proposing an immediate marriage. Her parents were delighted with the prospects and urged her to accept at once.


But the princess thought to herself; "Maybe tomorrow I'll decide. Yes, tomorrow I'll probably give him my answer. But for now, I'll just take a relaxing stroll through my precious garden and enjoy the fragrance and beauty of my aionioncallis lilies." And that's exactly what she did that evening, and the next, and the next . . . for weeks.


Meanwhile the prince, anxiously awaiting an answer became depressed over the apparent rejection of his offer, caught a bad cold which turned into flu, which developed into pneumonia. In a matter of a few more days, he was dead. His parents were heart broken to lose such a promising son. Her parents were understandably dismayed to lose the prospects of such an attractive son-in-law. But the gods, who had been watching the whole situation with increasing disapproval were enraged.


This young lady must be taught a lesson," they agreed. "Of course she must be punished a little too, but more importantly, she must be reminded daily, for the rest of her life, of how foolish it is to procrastinate." They further agreed; "And while we're at it, we might as well remind everyone else every day of their lives, to make the most of every day before the sun sets." Eventually they devised a brilliant strategy. They would let the beloved aionioncallis flower with its phenomenal longevity, become their silent teacher.


We shall, from this day on, take from the aionioncallis flower its long life," the gods announced, "and give it instead the life of a single day. It shall be renamed as the hemerocallis meaning 'beauty for a day', and shall keep all its loveliness, all its diamond-dusted brilliance, and its pure, and bright colors - - but only until nightfall. Then it shall wither away - - like the day's opportunities wasted, like the day's promises unfulfilled, like loved ones lost forever."


Finally, so as not to punish to harshly the weakness of a thoughtless princess, the gods designed the new flower to bud in grape like clusters, so that each day or so a new flower would unfold, offering everyone another and another, and yet another opportunity to marvel at the beauty of one of nature's perfect patterns, and to be reminded of the briefness of its life - - and our own.



The fence behind the white day lilies is covered with fragrant and flowering star jasmin. I can smell the perfume of the flowers in my house, especially in the evening! And, it is so nice.

CHERISH each day!

Save The Bees


It is so important to SAVE THE BEES.
Bees are the main pollinators nearly everywhere in the world. Many plants are completely dependant on bees to reproduce. Without pollination, all the plants would die off and not reproduce. Without the plants, all the animals on the earth would die, too. Humans are considered animal life.

And now, some interesting trivia - - - - "Archaeologists recently unearthed in Israel an amazing 30 intact beehives dating to around 900 B.C., approximately the period that King Solomon reigned. The hives were stacked in neat rows, three tiers high, in a room that would have contained some 100 hives total and been able to produce as much as half a ton of honey per year. This is an extraordinary find, because it is the first time that actual beehives have ever been discovered anywhere in the ancient Near East, and it indicates that early beekeeping was much more highly developed than what had been previously thought. The Old Testament uses the term "honey" 55 times; 16 times as part of the image of Israel being "the land of milk and honey." But many scholars had concluded the word "honey" usually referred to a type of "honey" produced from fruits such as dates and figs, partly because bee's honey is specifically mentioned only twice. This discovery confirms that nearly 3,000 years age, real bee's honey was produced in much large quantities than previously thought possible."




The pictured yellow rose  at the top of this post is from my garden. It is a floribunda named "Sunsprite" and it is a terrific bloomer.

Bee (haha) careful when you smell the flowers!

The Meaning of the Color Red

The color Red is such a wonderful color. According to Color Expert, Kate, Smith, "Red has more personal associations than any other color. Recognized as a stimulant, red is inherently exciting and the amount of red is directly related to the level of energy perceived. Red draws attention and a keen use of red as an accent can immediately focus attention on a particular element."
I recall when some of the first books on "Dress for Success" were published for women. The color red was recommended for a job interview. In 1979, I wore a red dress for an interview at a Fortune 500 company in the Occupational Health Department. I was hired? RED WORKS.
Around the same time I bought a metallic red Datsun sporty car. I enjoyed every single day that I drove that little red car. It was so much fun!
Believe it or not, this post is leading up to the subject of knitting. Recently, I finished knitting a scarf. What color? You say. Of course - - - - - Red. The pattern for this scarf is Canterbury Memories designed by Carol Bristol (http://www.carolbristoldesigns.com/). I knit it in Lamb's Pride (wool-mohair blend) worsted weight yarn. It was a very enjoyable pattern and the yarn is yummy!
Wow, I just added a link and I really didn't know I was doing it. I'm not going to touch it for fear it will disappear. Just kidding!
I am still on this "creating a blog" learning curve. And wow, it's been steep. The biggest challenges have been the spacing and the photo layouts. I can't seem to position the photos where I want them to be on the page. I wish I knew more about computer code. I sure hope it gets easier.
In the meantime, here are a few things that are RED at my home. I hope you like them. Yes, they are mostly from the garden, which is such a passion of mine. The fireplace corner photo is one of my favorite "red spots" in my home. It was a lot of fun creating and painting. There are two more strips of red on the other side of the living room. That photo will be for another day.
Enjoy and take time to smell the roses~

Bluebird On My Shoulder


YES, that is a tattoo. I mean "tat". I must get with the times - don't you think? Yes, that is my shoulder!! This year I decided that I wanted to have a permanent reminder that "happiness is always within reach, but if you push too hard you lose sight of it".

Let me tell you a little about the "Bluebird of Happiness". It has a long and varied history that goes back at least to 1909 when a play was written by Maurice Maeterlink called "The Bluebird". It was about two children who go on a magic journey looking for the Bluebird of Happiness. They don't find it, and when they return home they discover it's been in their back yard all along.

Another story is that in 1948 Art Mooney and his Orchestra had a best-selling record about the Bluebird of Happiness. The words were written by Edward Heyman and Harry Parr Davies.

Here are the lyrics - - -

(verse)
The beggar man and his mighty king are only
diff'rent in name,
For they are treated just the same by fate.
Today a smile and tomorrow tears,
We're never sure what's in store,
So learn your lesson before to late, so

(refrain)
Be like I, hold your head up high,
Till you find a bluebird of happiness.
You will find a greater peace of mind
Knowing there's a bluebird of happiness.
And when he sings to you,
Though you're deep in blue,
You will see a ray of light creep through,
And so remember this, life is no abyss
Somewhere there's a bluebird of happiness.

Life is sweet, tender and complete
When you find the bluebird of happiness.
You will find perfect peace of mind
When you find the bluebird of happiness.
Two hearts that beat as one,
"Neath a new found sun,
We are in a world that's just begun,
And you must sing his song, as you go along,
When you find the bluebird of happiness.

Wishing you many bluebirds of HAPPINESS.
