Yellow and blue...
I found a patch of forget-me-not's in a shady corner, where the buttercups have threatened to take over. It seems as though whenever I find time to work in the yard, it rains. And as much as I love being a Northwest girl, gardening in the rain just isn't something I'm willing to do.
I thought this would be the year I'd bring the gardens back into shape. It's been years since I've added any new plants, and I'd really like to do that. But getting things established means being close to home, especially in the summertime. The rest of the year I don't worry so much, because we usually get regular rainfall. But having to be close to home to water the garden puts a damper on travel plans. And I love the freedom to be spontaneous, to take a long road trip, to explore.
