Voice from the Middle


The best thing about owning a home again is the fact I have a yard. (Homeowner once again) I’d much rather be outside than cleaning the house, decorating, or whatever.

With a yard, comes my gardening, that leads to cut flowers in my house. The smells this Spring have been amazing.

It started with bulbs we planted last Fall.

Then, my lilac bush did it’s job. (I have since tore it out and replanted a new bush in it’s place. Let’s face it ā€” those old bushes don’t last forever.)

Next, came my peonies. Wow! Do I have peonies. There are 15 huge groups of peonies planted here. mmmm. Their smell. I wish you could smell them.

And, that’s just the Spring. Wait until you see what I’ve been doing since then.

ā€” Namaste
