Yesterday’s post struck a chord, huh? I’m so glad and it was great to get feedback and hear your stories and stand in solidarity with you all! To answer any questions you may have had, no, I did not walk out and I’m glad I didn’t. The other two speakers were terrific and I would have missed the stories they shared. The other thing is that it didn’t really hit home with me during the discussion, it was mostly after it was over and I started reflected back on it that I realized what they had done. If I could ask you to take away one thing from my experience it would be that we have to recognize the role women play in our own subjugation and then we have to learn from that and find a better way to communicate with each other.
Today, we’re moving on to something that always brings me joy: my garden. I think it’s high time I show you how it’s progressing. If you need a refresher, check out this post and see how it looked last year before we planted anything. And this is how it looked just about one month ago.
Things have changed a lot! And I’ve got 3 pictures (surprise surprise) to show you just how much.
Everything is growing! The window boxes are looking great, those red geraniums are a classic and are thriving in this cool-ish rainy-ish weather we’ve been having. The salvia is blooming and the hydrangeas are leafing out and the sedum has expanded beyond belief. Kym, the genius behind this whole front bed redo, shared with me this rhyme about a new garden:
the first year it sleeps
the second year it creeps
the third year it leaps
I’m in year two and this is creeping . . . I can’t wait to see what leaping does!
