Green or dry


The agapanthus heads are dropping their seed and I have been tut-tutting as I walk around the garden. I should have cut them weeks ago to save myself having to weed out hundreds of baby agapanthus because I already have more than enough.

This weeks Psalm Challenge is one of those challenging ones where the Psalmist wishes ill on the wicked.

Reflection:
Psalm 58:9
"whether they be green or dry—the wicked will be swept away"

  4. Levels of 'wickedness', eh? I wonder how to tell a 'green wicked' from a 'dry wicked'?
    As in wine: sweet and dry.
    As in people: young and old.
    As in general: alive and dead.

    Whither goest agapanthus, cometh snails.

    1. I don't really like the vengefulness of this Psalm and the green/dry selection is out of context -- I was finding a bit difficult to make a connection.

      Funny you should mention snails. Elsewhere in the psalm it mentions them "May they be like a slug that melts away as it moves along, like a stillborn child that never sees the sun." How nasty is that!

      You are right with agapanthus cometh snails. Our garden is infested with both.
