Ah! Refreshed!

It's amazing what just a couple of hours outside and in the garden will do for the spirits! Managed to move a few small things to do some re-design around our deck steps, but even a little bit of digging dirt made me so calm and relaxed.

The dianthus is the star of the garden right now. Its spicy fragrance is not as awesome as lilacs or some of the peonies, but it's nice to have inside, too. Hope you are having a lovely day.

Too much going on. Too much work. Too little sleep. Just plain, not enough time. I hate it when life is like this. Two more weeks and maybe things will ease up.

Mitchell calls this our "primrose path" and indeed, it is. Evening Primrose, aka Oenothera berlandieri 'Siskiyou', that is becoming a bully. I'll enjoy it one more season and then rip a lot of it out so that some other perennials have a chance to take some space.

Be Bop a Re Bop

Rhubarb Crisp!

We got rhubarb in our fruit share this week - along with lots and lots of strawberries - so I decided to give it a try. Rhubarb is one of those things - is it a fruit or a vegetable? - that I have never eaten so I threw together a "crisp". It smelled delicious, and tasted yummy. Good enough to do it again sometime.

After an entire week without my computer I feel totally cut off from the world. So much to read, so many comments I wanted to make, but mainly to let you know I am alive and have been missing you.

Congratulations to GG on her graduation!! Know the party was wonderful. Glad your dad is in town with you and Jane. Happy Weekend!
