Everything we planted on our deck is blooming! On top of that, we got a hose with a mist setting. You know what that means.Mist on everything! And then : rampant photography. I’m not sure I like most of these photos. I was shooting in broad daylight which made it really hard to control the outcome. Oh well, I love my deck!
I spent a little time this morning in historic Duluth. Jeremy and I met some long time tweeps, checked out an eight week oil painters class, and just enjoyed a quiet morning on a street that wouldn’t be so deserted on a Saturday afternoon if it weren’t for the rain. Planted up and down the street is ornamental kale. I never expected that healthy green to have a sexy side. I may have to plant some of the Brassica oleracea in my garden at home this season.
The life in my favorite park has been mostly snuffed out by a diminishing number of sunlight hours and bursts of Georgia cold. Still, I seem to be able to find a cold kind of beauty in its dry state, with its suddenly open passageways revealed after all the foliage protecting it dies. Still, before life comes death, and we are in a season of death now, and every part of the park is reaching out, waiting for spring.
