By now, the national media has dissected our recent heat wave and all the gloomy projections about what it all means have taken their toll. So as much as I am enjoying the early spring, I know that it's not a good thing. But it's still lovely in my backyard and the dogwood is coming along nicely.
A hard freeze is forecast for tonight and that will be troublesome for many of the spring blooms. I can cover up the flowers on the ground, but the trees will be out there on their own. The dogwood blooms looks awfully delicate; here's hoping that they are tougher than they look.
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.
