I was so tired last week, putting away things from the holiday that I didn't really enjoy my time. Now that I have got that over with and am back in my old routine, I feel much better and can see that before I know it, I will be able to get my hands into the soil and think about spring flowers. Last week-end was like spring, but of course I hope that we get more rain, otherwise planting new flowers might be a mistake. I think that we forget how much we depend on having a normal rain season. I would be very sad not to be able to plant and harvest a small garden, well not that a few tomato plants is a garden! :-) I had lots of the yellow pear type, and they just kept on giving!!
Still I depend on getting to work in the yard, rather like a good therapy and I can get lots of needed energy spent! My husband doesn't like yard work, but I do, it is a renewing of the earth and I need that. I miss my cat, Henry, and his companionship. He would sit and watch me and occasionally come by for me to pet him. I still look for him when I am in the garden. I guess I should get a replacement, but then my husband doesn't want another pet. I would have to get another husband if I did!! :-) Not really, but it would cause problems that I don't care to have.
So I will just have to do my garden work and listen to my favorite gal, Kate Wolf while doing
so. Well, just needed to write down my thoughts, probably not the greatest, but I feel better. Antique Rose
