Hello old friend!
It’s like I turned my back for a second and there you are. Have I been that busy I missed the bud phase? I love my garden, I love that there’s always something to look at. Especially this time of year when everything wakes for the sun. When my To Do List gets out of control I take my cup of tea out to the garden and take a deep breath and all is well. There is nothing like a little spontaneous dead-heading to keep me on track.
We have an ongoing banter at Chez Crayon about my lilac. It’s deciduous you see, and spends half the year masquerading as a stick. And suddenly … kapow! … it’s spring and my old friend is back with it’s beautiful heart-shaped leaves and clusters of sweet smelling flowers.
Sometimes we just have to know that stick phases pass and wonder returns.
