Chinese Maple

Saturday, November 6, 2004

Saturday morning dew on the impatiens. Impatiens appear pinky pastel crayons but they are hardy reseeding football players in my Zone. The fun in impatiens is the poppers. The seed pod is like a New Years surprise all wrapped in spiral lime. Cup your hand around the life force gently. If you move... Sign in to see full entry.

The worms need some coffee

I had six days worth of coffee and eggshells creating a science experiment about mold on the kitchen counter. No worry the neat freak has not lost her mind, it's all in a sealed container. Normally I toss the coffee grains and egg shells every day into the lowest area of my veggie garden to try and... Sign in to see full entry.

Snail hunt

Snails are my enemy. Last night after the rainstorm, we put on our mud boots and carry the flashlights out into the garden. I don't like to use poison because of my animals so for the weak of stomach you better click on. The children love a good snail hunt ( we also target slugs). There is hot coco...

My White Roses

Having read every book about care and feeding of roses, and once had a side business of wholesale heirloom roses, I have come upon my own Universal Theory on roses. Einstein spent the last fifteen years of his life rewriting his last hypothesis. I believe it is time I write mine. Roses are the best... Sign in to see full entry.

chinese maple

I transplanted the Chinese Maple from her inappropriate desert home. Honorably placed in the front of my garden. Foolish choice to move a sensitive shade tree who fought for life in the heat to a milder climate with worse clay to hold her. She stands as a symbol of survival. This Fall I expected her...
