Roots and Wings.....Dry Bones

That's the Ezekiel Bible vision that asks... can these dry bones live again??? and with the help of the Good Lord... Yes!

I've spent three days away from posting, and away from my quilting room.   Just letting my roots be exposed, abused..... out in the open,, roots that are rough and somewhat ugly.... my within alive with beaut and life!  SO what if I'm feeling a little down, blue, dreary....God gives summer, winter and fall.... a season for all things.  And this season will end... and spring is in the underground sap.

So, I reflect on ROOTS.....The one and only Mr. Kunta Kente....defining root as a part of a plant body that bears no leaves, and therefore also lacks nodes

Last year, I pulled a good many Beaded Iris plants from this OESC unattended garden bed.  I'll go and photo and see how my back yard is growing.    It's somewhat miraculous... that with the neglect and severe snow.... they will undoubtedly bloom... another year.

I'm waiting my retirement time.... another year.   I'm waiting for my money/bank/savings account to grow... another year.    I'm with my mother, sister, brothers.... another year.  

 These tree roots... not a very big trunk... hmmmm.....  they have survived deep beneath the earth... and visibly here....
 A cement table is placed near the base roots of this old oak... I suppose this is what this shade tree is.  Just outside the west side of my office building.

Here are my indoor beauties....
Above ---  This one is in memory of Auther Jordan....
 Above ---This is affectionately called...... a mother'n'laws tongue
Above are my 2010 purchase of succulents.... a new breed that I'm into.   I purchased about 4 different jade plants.. so far and each one has dried up and is dying at home and at work.....
Here are my problem plants... below.... the questionable jade and replanted Mo'n'Law plant.
Below --- And I'll call this a Ricardo- McPherson plant....
