Weekly Photo Challenge, Phoneography–Future Tense

I found some greenery that will be daylilies one of these days,


and the butterfly bush that holds the promise of blossoms and the butterflies of summer.

And then we have the photo that shows weeding in my future.

Weeds. If only everything else grew so well.

Have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks, Trisha. When I first saw “Future Tense” my mind wandered toward Sci-Fi, and that was a total loss. I was stumped on Adrienne’s Six Word Friday, too! But after reading the whole post from the Daily Post, I headed for the backyard.

    1. It was already starting to come back before we did the late winter cut-back, Pix It’s hard to cut something that has green leaves forming, but it wouldn’t be pretty later on if left as it was.


  3. Lots of promise showing in your garden…you are right about the weeds!
    Just read in your “about” section that your 7th grandchild is almost due. What an exciting time this must be for you all. I know our children were always so excited to meet their newest sibling – and so were we!


    1. The due date has been changed from April 30 to the 22nd, and now the 9th. We don’t know when to expect this little one, but it won’t be long, Pieces of Sunshine. πŸ™‚

  5. Why didn’t I think of this before? I’m such a lousy gardener, I should just point to the frozen clods of dirt that make up my garden right now, and brag about how wonderful they WILL be. Brilliant!


  6. It’s for sure that the weeds aren’t in future tense. My garden didn’t barely grow any tomatoes or anything else last year, but it sure grew a bumper crop of weeds over the winter – wall to wall weeds in fact. I’m really thinking of giving up the garden for this year.

  8. I’m very envious that you live where the climate is warmer than New Jersey! I think I have at least another month before I will see my daylilies that big! They are just peeking out of the ground right now. Thank you for sharing. πŸ™‚


    1. I hadn’t been paying much attention to them, mithriluna. I was surprised to see them as big as they are. Our weather has been so crazy. We had snow flurries and below-freezing temps again last night.


  9. Your post reminds me that I need to cut back our butterfly bush too, or it will be taller than the house! And I shudder to think about weeding: my least favorite chore!


    1. Ours had such thick stems this time I had to recruit hubby to help, Dianna. The bonus to weeding is the reward of how good it looks afterward. It’s a lot like work, though!

  11. Wonderful photos for the challenge. I’d say you’re going to have some lovely flowers soon.
    I feel for you on the weeding, it’s one of the most unenjoyable chores of gardening or yardening.
    Your phone takes really good photos. πŸ™‚
