And now I wait
Yesterday was a good day of friendship and community. A friend offered his truck and his muscle to help deliver and shovel fresh soil with me. While working, we spoke with the new neighbour across the street, an old neighbour next door, kids and parents as they walked home from school. I love that. The longer I live in this neighbourhood, the neighbourhood we bought into "in spite" of it's lack of charm or character, I realize that the character comes from the people. And the people are good.
I tilled last night and planted my baby seedlings all morning, stopping only to eat a fresh gifted muffin and donate lots of excess perennials to a new friend.
And now I wait for the seeds to germinate and pray that my babies don't fry in the sun. It was a very hot day. And last week there was snow. It's a crazy climate.
I read this on another blog recently. Why do people insist of planting red and yellow tulips when there is so much variety out there? I love this combination of purple, white and the little grape hyacinths.
