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.
Just when I think Donald Trump can’t be more disgraceful, he manages to be worse. Living in hope is a challenge with this government in charge and yet I will persist. I like to read (I just finished Elena Ferrante’s My Brilliant Friend), garden, cook, and talk.
I love… fireflies at twilight, lanterns with tiny lights, my freshened front porch, laughter, air conditioning, visits to my fairy garden, tomato blooms, flower bouquets, tiny zinnia flowers, antique Mason jars, striped t-shirts, iced tea, summer’s relaxation, a pile of books to be read, chambray napkins, supper on the back deck, sleeping in, birds chirping, backyard bunnies, cutting the grass, and the sweaty feel of a good workout.
