Savor the Day

A day off from work. To putter in the garden and have an adventure. Truly, truly thankful.

Sounds: Morning Doves, Cardinals, Bluebirds, Mockingbirds, a dozing, muttering beagle, podcasts of The Splendid Table and This American Life

Sights: (Still!) Sprouting kale, lettuce, potatoes, radishes, snap peas, scallions, spinach; healthy looking rhubarb; a growing container garden

Smells: Blackberry blossoms, damp soil, dewy grass, marmalade on wheat toast

Looks like it will be a sultry day in the Hollow. I'm off to a quick meeting for some freelance work and then, Milmont Greenhouses - a.k.a. Blue Ridge gardener's mecca. This evening will be all about weeding, transplanting and introducing my new plant and herb finds to the Hollow. Life is good.

A trip to a gardener's mecca sounds like a lovely way to spend the day. We're having a few last cool gasps of spring here and then on to sweltering summer.
