Still outdoors even when we rightly should be within

We are learning to respect the "rhythms" of Mother Nature this week while we try to haul and spread dirt and plant flowers between the raindrops falling on the blossoms and the bees.

Inside, we are clearly headed down a garden rabbit trail, gathering books about gardening, books set in gardens and even a book or two about writing about gardens. Right now, it's mostly only bedtime reading-- for me and the children. We're all actually dreaming about gardens. Only 5 cubic yards of dirt and 22 perennials-to-plant to go and I'll actually have time to get our "trail" on paper for you here.  Stay tuned.
