Garden thinking planning 5/12/2018

I promised myself I would go outside everyday this season In a struggle of my own creation I check for humans then I open the door An hour later I find my cellphone is dead the bluetooth headset hugs my neck in case I need help or company in the weeds of my own design…

Invasive or hearty perennial

If I have to spend two years pulling rhizomes of a beautiful yet wild sunflower's cousin that has taken over a portion of my yard then it must be invasive I never thought when I harvested the flower from the side of the road that it would turn into an aggressive hard to eradicate invasive…

This morning

This morning in the garden I wondered about wild mini daisies Why are they everywhere in my yard is it like the great dandelion epidemic of 1978 In the front yard a toddler picks a flower for their mother A dandelion The mom accepts the flower but leaves it on the porch when they go…

Permission to forgive

I bought a laptop battery two or three months ago It sat while I waited for the right moment to undo ten itty bitty star shaped screws and open the back of the only device I can blog on Insert photo of the smallest screws in the world Dusty, I did not recognize the parts…

I’m trying 3/18/2017

I'm trying to find more positives than negatives yet, the planets are askew and the wind's blowing my dress up in the air (try holding a toddler while that happens) He can't remember our conversations my words mean nothing requests result in nothing texts cause no reaction I am the poltergeist in my relationship.
