My friend came back this weekend…
This week I was able to find 12 gorgeous purple SPRING violets in the yard….
and a friend has a whole bed of Iris plants blooming. Mother Nature is a bit confused….
thinking about the plant known as “fire weed,”…and burning a small ton of my parent’s papers…
making herbal teas…
We’re still getting the occasional strawberry! … when the squirrels don’t steal them.
This week, we (finally) got everything done at my parent’s house, and it is being listed for sale.
It’s been a long haul… but I am so glad we are winding down.
so very tired today…………
on a side note...Today has been full of interesting bits:
*releasing the past --- burning 70years worth of greeting cards, newspaper clippings, event programs.. etc
*writing to my elected officials
*writing to companies raping our land
It is well into fall here, and yet….
yesterday when I was walking with my son in the yard, I found a spring violet bursting forth in bloom…
today I am in much physical pain…. and so it goes….
Yesterday was really hard… full of anxiety and sadness…
and today… my son is here from New Mexico… and things are brighter.
I absolutely love our house. It is small… yet plenty. It is colorful, and full of art… yet serene and relaxing. We are in town… yet on a dead end… so we have access, without any traffic. We have the woods right near us. It is amazing. And I am so very grateful.
There are still things I want to do here… and the top photo shows a color inspiration I am toying with….
today there are songbirds eating the beggar’s tick plants… .turkey chortling at the edge of our yard
… and a bunny sleeping in our fallow garden. ….
