They Say Very Hardy

This Coleus has come back from last year, nice surprise.
Remember all the happiness
That comes your way in living.
Forget each worry and distress;
Be hopeful and forgiving.

Now that I am old I fine this easier to do.
I leave all of the family stress to my Girls,
It's all with their children now.
As far as the stress of this world I can
not let this bare in my soul
because I know God is in control.

It seems to me that we mellow out as we get older. Your Coleus is beautiful, like velvet!

Coleus is such a pretty plant!
I try not to stress about things, and hand it over to God, but I still take it back sometimes.

My mother use to buy these plants when I was a kid and they would grow to be so large. I don't see them for sale at nurseries anymore. That is too bad as I would buy some. Your plant is beautiful.

I had Coleus in Jacksonville (Florida). I don't know if they'd grow well on this property. It's too dry.
It is good to not stress but still pay attention to what's going on around us. If good people do nothing, evil will win. ~:)

I have never been successful with Coleus which I am always sad about as I love their colourful leaves. Lovely words xx
