How is this possible?
Gazanias, which only open on my step when the sun starts to hit them mid-morning, continue to bloom profusely after a few hard frosts have decimated the pot of portulaca right beside them.
It makes no sense. They must be some seriously tough flowers. Them, and the onions and beet leaves still going strong out in the vegetable garden.
Back to work this morning. Leaving in 45 minutes. Ready to go. On the outside. On the inside, no.
Joan, I’ll be thinking about you and Ben this week and believing all goes well. It won’t be easy for you and Gary either if he is in any pain during recovery. Such a helpless feeling. May it all be worth it in the end. I wish there was a way to give you comfort through the ordeal.
And congrats to Gary on becoming a Canadian citizen officially.

And now, what to take for lunch? Slim pickins around here this morning. An apple and some cottage cheese appear to be my only choices. They’ll have to do.
