Pincushion (Scabiosa)

Where you tend a rose a thistle cannot grow.
                              Frances Hodgson Burnett

This is true in the garden and with children.
Trust your parenting.  Fill your children with love.
Introduce your children to the things you love.


The pincushion (scabiosa) is one of my favorite cottage flowers.
Our garden always has lavender colored pincushions but this year,
from seed, we have the lovely Aces of Spades. See how it
literally glows in the night. 

I pray my children will dig in the dirt.

  1. Beautiful post and what lucky kids you have! I think they mostly likely "love" to dig in the dirt! It was so nice to finally meet you at Country Roads a few days ago. Thanks for stopping by.

    Take care,
