As a native Californian now living on the East coast, I'm always impressed by the different plants that grow around here. While I was on the Cape, I admired some very lovely garden patches filled with lush flowers and plants.
I discovered the happy growing delivered some fresh goodness to the local farmer's market in Provincetown.
My tomatoes are coming along and I expect to harvest plenty of them with some fresh basil in the weeks ahead. The rest of the crop will make an appearance next month, when I look forward to being overwhelmed by squash and peppers. I always welcome the summer bounty. But in the meantime, I'll admire these pictures of other gardener's lovely successes.
Each day with Donald Trump in power is a day we are losing what’s left of our better selves. I am embarrassed and ashamed of my nation and look for hope in resistance. I like to read (I just finished Ta-Nehesi Coates’ Between The World and Me), garden, cook, and talk.
I love… lobster bisque, eyebrow-shaping gel, NPR, tulips, Spring lists, flower prints, bunnies, paper crafts, Easter eggs, homemade waffles, family traditions, sunlight, flower seed packets, shoots of green in chilly Spring soil, pink cardigans, chirping birds, hair ties, Spring Break plans, sunlight, sleeping in, and time for a sweaty workout.
