Alley View

I wondered why I hadn't noticed the beautiful maple tree across the alley before. Then I remembered that it was obscured by a dead tree. Once the dead wood was removed, the beautiful tree came into view.


Just 2 weeks into summer and I'm wilted, and so is my garden. ... Sure, there are still summer flowers. Each day a new daylily opens. I have come to realize that I want an idealized garden ...


My garden is a full palette of color in June. Perhaps part of my hunger for color and beauty is an attempt to store up some reserves in my soul for the dormant season.
