Good Morning my lovelies:
I've missed blogging this week. Been outside gardening, inside Etsying and confounding the grands (my job, don't ya know) and plotting my overthrow of the world as we know it.
Actually pretty normal week, as week's go.
This week's sweetness came from the quiet of working outside. Just me, the robin's and mountain jays and the earthworms. A lovely warm breeze, flowers blooming, bees finding pollen and me pondering how it is that plants have a mind of their own during the mild winters. I have hollyhocks 2 ft tall, some with buds. Violets passed prime blooming (missed it) and mint everywhere that something else isn't. We have a new plan for the climbing roses. Because let's face it, it isn't fun to be attacked by 9 ft rose canes catching in your hair as you walk down the garden path. I'll take photos of our new plan this week after we have enacted it.
The grands and I planted newspaper pots with new herbs. Sprinkled daisy, blue morning glory, bachelor buttons (my favs), chinese lanterns, snap dragon and 4 o clock seeds in the fairy garden. Also planted okra and tomatillos to eat. This is always the fun part.....next comes the weeding, not so fun part. But watching the two grands get dirty and tired from a day of fun and play in the garden is priceless.
Still haven't found any turtles out but we have found evidence that they have been. I'm so very anxious to get my first sighting of my shelled babies.
Today marks the beginning of Autism Awareness Month. Of course I have an opinion about such but I know a very special person who said it better than I could ever. Please go and read this beautiful, heartfelt post from my friend Bird. http://takealeftatthemoon.blogspot.com/2012/04/autism-acceptance-month.html You will be glad you did, I promise.
I hope each of you has a very sweet Sunday. By this time next week I'll have stored up more appreciation and share it with you. Bye with smooches and squoozes, lovelies.
