Off on my sidebar I have this long list
of Blogs which once I posted to
enthusiastically and with great energy
but times have changed
and so I have decided to amalgamate...,
(there's a good word)
the main reason being that I feel lazy and unproductive
when I go from one ABC Wednesday letter
to the next, without anything in between
even though I think in my mind
of a thousand things I'd like to write about!
So tonight it is DaybyDay cum Garden
and the picture above is redolent of the garden
when all the springtime pastels have
said farewell and the
vivid reds and yellows and purples of summer
come into their own.
I have stolen a few new potatoes
from the little curtain at the bottom of the
potting bag that allows you to do that,
and enjoyed them with mint and new peas...
only a few of which twine themselves
around a pretty metal tower.
It makes me feel that I have a garden again!
Oh happy days, when I had a gardener too......
These days I find my happiness tending the flowers
(which sometimes requires that I roam the garden
with my machete, filling barrels of yard waste with extra greenery
I get so carried away at planting time)!!!
Here is a little smattering of these vibrant colours....
and the early morning smoke that drifts down from the
wildfires in the Cariboo/ Chilcotin
where my dear children keep vigil
and wait for the smoke and the danger to go away.
