Lavender,  red hot pokers and daylilies.

A prayer

The God of all grace, who has called us into his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after your season of suffering a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you.

To Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen

1 Peter 5 : 10
Daylilies,  lavender and the torchlike flower heads of red hot pokers.  A combination of purple, bright red,  orange and yellow.
Some day lilies.
Why would you ask how long they last. (Perhaps in hope that it would be more.) Be very gentle as you remove the ones that have had their day because the buds are close by.

You discover your voice.               You matter.

Maybe not to the world,  yet.

You matter to yourself

You are worthy.

In the garden.
The red hot pokers and lavenders were planted two years ago where they can get some needed sun. The flower spikes of both plants attract the bees and butterflies, while if the red hot pokers were in my sister’s garden (SA)  they would attract the hummingbirds. The lavender buds are just starting to open and if we have a warm week I will start picking them with long stems to tie together and dry.

“The light is amber, the air still, the daylilies folded in on themselves.  Soon, the hooded blue of dusk will fall,  followed by the darkness of night and the sky writing of stars, indecipherable to us mortals , despite our attempts to force narrative upon them.”

Elizabeth Berg
