Summer Foxgloves

For winter's rains and ruins are over
And all the season of snows and sins;
The days dividing lover and lover,
The light that loses, the night that wins;
And time remembered is grief forgotten,
And frosts are slain and flowers begotten,
And in green underwood and cover
Blossom by blossom the spring begins. 

Algernon Charles Swinburne, 1890 

I'm loving foxgloves (digitalis).  Tossing ripe seed heads around the garden yields more next year.  Love lazy self-seeded gardening!

I've been accepted into Southern New Hampshire University's online MBA program.  Sometimes, I think the only way I can to do it is because I haven't been in school for years and I don't remember how hard it can be!

‘Till next time, stay shabby!

Your images are gorgeous, Sandy!
and your post is wonderful.
You will do fine going back to school....you are a smart, and determined woman.

I went back to school when I was older. It was hard at first. I had to read thing three times before it would make sense. But once I got started it got easier. I did so well that it was a great self esteem booster. You have the spirit and the determination and I think you will do well.
Hope you are doing well and how is your cute doggie.

Good for you for going back to school. You will grow older whether you go back or not so might as well do it.

"School is cool" whatever your age!! I'm just a few weeks away now from finishing my degree and while it's a relief in a way I'm also feeling a bit sad - I'll miss the classroom, the challenges, the debates, and continually learning new stuff.

We used to have foxgloves, which I really love too, at the New Zealand cottage but when our goat had kids (which weren't tethered) we had to pull them all out because they'd make a fatal snack :( You've prompted me to think about re-introducing them again. Flights are all booked to spend 5 weeks there over the summer - yay!

Visiting your blog is like a bright light. You go girl, giggle. Make your mark, follow a new path. Just be happy in all you do xo

You can do it because you're a warrior in every moment, because you're awesome, powerful, and an example of How to Be.

You Go Girl! And don't stop, don't look back.
