So This Is Blooming!
Right on time.
Sweet alyssum. White. Early bloomer.
Last week was a blur of being out in the garden as much as possible. Crawling around on my hands and knees. Bent over a rake. Sitting on a stool. Trying not to fall on my ass. Praying a bug didn’t crawl up my pant leg. Gloved and stylin’ in one of G-Man’s long-sleeved shirts. Wearing the ugly hat.
SOP for MOM — Standard operating procedure for month of May.
Last week was all about being outdoors as much as possible. Not tied to a keyboard. Not slaving over a cold (and heartless) microwave. Not elbow-deep in clutter sort.
It was heaven.
You know what else was heaven? Yup. Gonna tell ya.
1 – Stumbling down to the kitchen Friday morning and spying a male cardinal having the time of his life taking a splash and roll bath in the birdbath. Where is the smartphone when you really need it? It would have been an epic little video.
2 – The first pedicure of the season, which I gift myself in Month of May. OPI California Raspberry. A total breakout color for me. The yummiest of deep pinks.
Pink? Pink, you say?
I know, right?
And Monday is in the house.
Give it your best shot.
