After several days of high winds and heavy rains, this afternoon we had a breather. The snowdrops opened. I have realized it has become a habit or a tradition for me to post the snowdrops each year. Thanks to tag words, I found the dates. I thought they were late this year, but no:
These are linked to the respective posts, but it doesn’t show up as in being a different colour or underlined. I can’t find where to change what in order for that to happen.
Here is step 4, a decorative band around the edge.
Now the chair has been reassembled. Have a seat!
I went out into the garden; the light was shining into the greenhouse giving a golden glow. I ran back in the house to get the camera. A cloud floated over the sun but there was a space between two clouds where I thought a ray might again appear. However, the two clouds formed this one long band exactly at the sun’s level, so I took the photo without its illumination.
I have done some clearing and cleaning, washed the glass, added manure. One tomato plant is still alive as is a pepper plant from 2011. Tender plants are over-wintering, scented geraniums, an ivy geranium, felicia and artemis. Parsley has become “perennial” since I let one go to seed.
Outside the camellia has buds.
No, I do not accept things the way they are. I want to see the world changed for the better. What are the causes of the way things are today? Greed, spite, seeking to dominate, exploit, fear, superstition, carelessness, lack of love/compassion…
I look within. Do I find any of that there? That’s where I work.
I realized I should be making little groups of 4 rather than something evenly spaced so I readjusted everything.
Meanwhile something has come up in the garden. Makes me want to get out there and scratch around, just have to wait for the rain to let up. What did I plant there? Ah, yes, some kind of bulb with blue flowers that I was given in a plant exchange. Scilles, if I remember correctly, which may be Siberian squill.
You can also see one of our special volcanic rocks, not to be confused with a potato. 🙂
