Well, I've been traveling a bit and will be traveling some more in the toute suite future, so posting may be sporadic for awhile. Tomorrow I leave for a ten-day writers workshop in Maine, where I hope that among other things, I'll be able to cobble together a book proposal. Several of you have been nagging me about a book, so there ya go. Hope you're happy now.
Whilst I'm gone, Walu will be in charge of the dogs and cats, but young neighbor D, who has a healthy and growing interest in gardens, will be tending the garden. D took care of our yard a couple of weeks ago when both Walu and I were out of town and everything looked fabulous when we came back, so I'm confident that it is in good hands. I've even recommended him to other neighbors for their own vacation garden needs.
Later, in July, I'll be traveling to Buffalo, New York for the big Garden Bloggers to-do, and immediately following that, I'm doing a workshop down in Athens, Texas. But I'll try to pop in and out on these pages for a report whenever I get some time and good wireless.
In the meantime, here are some scenes from the garden right now. The photo above is from a prickly pear cactus in bloom in the backyard. The rest are from the front.
Watching the Mexican feather grass in the front hell strip is mesmerizing:
Where I write in the mornings (those little orange flags tell D what to water and how much):
The views from where I write:
That's all for now. See you in the funny papers.
