One-Liner Wednesday – Reach Out to Your Friends

This post is in response to Linda’s  #1OneLinerWednesday.

There is no good or bad time to reach out to friends.

The measure of a true friend is that nothing is asked in return.  No self interest or selfishness is involved in true friendship.  So whether you are feeling upbeat or down, reach or to your friends and spread the love and warmth. Many a time I have felt the gloom lifting when I start visiting my blogily. I have not seen any one of them but as I go through their words, a warm feeling starts to fill me over.  I smile (or cry) with them, feel their joy and share their pains.  So I dedicate my One Liner Wednesday  to all my friends, those who I have met and are now separated by geography and to those that I have not met ( but hope to someday) all across the globe but are close to me by their words.  You have made it easier to navigate my journey in this insane world.

One-Liner Wednesday – Future Blooms

A present not taken well care of will not bear fruit in future.

I was looking for a photo to post for Frank Jansen’s Tuesday Photo Challenge prompt “Future“.  Weather had been really nice here for last couple of days and I was working in my garden to take care of various plants.  Orange trees and apple tree are in full bloom.  The apple tree is small and comparatively young.  It also did not give us any fruits last year.  As I was coming back from my morning walk with my dog, Skooby, I looked at the blooming apple tree in my front yard.  I hoped that this year it will bear fruits.  My wife had been talking to the gardener for some work to be done for a vegetable garden and she had talked with him regarding some needed care for the apple tree.  As I was looking at the tree and the apple blooms, the one liner quote suddenly came to my mind.  Orange blooms are from a California navel orange tree in our backyard.  Couple of years back we had so many oranges that few branches broke because they could not bear the weight of the fruits.  Last year there were barely a few on the same tree.  My wife had been caring for that tree during last year and looking at the new blossoms, we are hopeful that it will bear fruits this year.
