A deck of spring...
"Mary, mary quite contrary, how does your garden grow?"
Mom sent me a box with snapdragon seeds. She also sent crocosmia bulbs, nasturtiums and another which I've forgotten.
I have a little deck that basks in the morning sun and cools in the afternoon shade - perfect for my southern garden.
I do not know how they will grow here, the salty, rainy flowers; but I want to try...
There will be an illegal rainfall as water drips from the deck awning but oh! I long for flowers! and that is worth any..waste.
What is waste anyway and defined by whom? I say it is an investment. Not only for the senses but for my oregon heart part.
Wasn't Christmas just 4 months ago? How quickly we are here. April showers and May flowers, spring sprung, easter and Christ is won the grave.
Oh! I remember the other flower! Cosmos!
And! I have begun to iron too...
