I confess, I've always loved lousy weather —
cold gray days when most people are inside doing normal things
like reading, or cooking, or cleaning out closets.
It's been raining all day, the temperature dropping. I'm stir crazy.
Time to put on my chicken boots, grab my iPad and head outside with a plan to find beautiful things on an "ugly day."
As it turns out, my neighbors Vonda and Cecil also don't know when to come in out of the rain either! Instead, they're repairing a fence post in Cecil's raised bed out front.
Down to the gardens
I’ve become quite familiar with the gardens since moving into my Elderberry home five months ago. I’m inspired by “common gardener goddesses" Vonda and Karolyn.
I’m a newbie, mostly pulling weeds. I’m finding a second vocation
however as mechanical fix-it person — mending fences,
improving gates, whatever! I find surprising gratification in making
things beautiful and more functional!
