I have spent months getting the garden ready for my few weeks of downtime during my hip replacement recovery. I intentionally scheduled the surgery after everything was planted and fertilized, water lines in place and weeds pulled. I figured I would be back to 100% when harvest time came around. In the meantime, I would simply watch the garden grow.
I know that I am not good at sitting still but that is the biggest understatement. I am going stir crazy. I’ve convinced myself that this garden needs me (even though it doesn't). It’s nice to be needed. Right? Well, I have managed to slow down and enjoy the view. When you slow down you see things you maybe didn’t see before. I still see weeds popping up everywhere, but I also see my sunflowers bloom into gigantic yellow suns - that will eventually provide seeds for the birds. I can almost feel them breathe. There is so much beauty in this evolution. Enjoy the view!
My love for black and white is stronger than ever. I almost always go there first. We like what we like!
