I am taking a 'spring break' this morning for one hour to post this post. Then I am off again for the last push of the season on duties before summer arrives this week like that sweaty eager boy from basketball practice and I wonder regretfully why I let another spring get away from me.
I miss most being able to take time to breathe and smell and smile. Those of you who have slow days with time to let thoughts tumble like die until they rest and you rest, I am envious. My days such as these are just around the corner...just out of sight...just must learn to say "No."
Below are three of my columbine volunteers. It seems the columbine have volunteered everywhere this year, including in beds where I do not remember planting them. I think I was told they cross pollinate before they revert to type, but that does not seem to be happening with any truth in my yard this year, as I have a large variety. I must have purchased a bag of crazy seeds years ago!
They just glow in the late afternoon sun.
