A new house with a yard with the promise of a garden;
A front door, and a back door, and did I mention a yard?
I have been here a week just today.
I grew accustomed to living inside my condo with its balcony in the treetops.
I went down and up the stairs once a day for the mail, and a quick walk between buildings,
looking for sprouting lilies planted by the HOA, not by any of the residences –
we could not participate in unauthorized planting (as stated on my record – heh).
No matter, now I can plant with abandon – and I shall.
Daylillies, hundreds of them – or fifty 😉
Poppies – American Heritage – large, red, spreading
I just purchased five packets of seeds to sow before the last freeze,
or, as I like to say, any day now HA
along the driveway where they, whoever they were, parked their many cars
mashing the soil into a hard surface
soon to be raked and scraped and torn by my long handled claw of a tool.
And I tossed the dried peppers that fell from the ristra in the move into a corner near the fence.
They will grow, and I shall hang another ristra of my own making next September.
Much to do…and glad for it.
