Hello? How did you find me here? I thought I was hiding behind the day lilies.
I took this photo last year. Poppies are in my neighbor's garden, not mine. I have planted some, but they don't come up. My mother had a corner plot of poppies in our childhood garden and I love them. Which reminds me of the poppy field in The Wizard of Oz. Kelli surprised me and swooped me off to see Wicked at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts! I was on the edge of my seat for the entire performance! Those voices! The glitz! The glamor!
Do you see Kelli at the door of the Wendy House? She's talking to Millie Rose who likes to throw things around in there. Smile!
Feel free to jump into the saddle of this garden worm!
A gnome solar light! Lighting up a weed or two!
Joe the Scarecrow has a new job. He guards Jeff's tomatoes. (more Wizard of Oz connections!)
There are so many things I'd like to do right now: play around with poetry, sew a fine seam, work in my art journal, knit another sleeve, scrub the floors, clear off my desk, iron the contents of the overflowing basket, make some sun tea.
Well, it is not to be. I shall instead wade through all the papers on my desk at school and get as many more glimpses of this year's sweet eleven and twelve year old faces as possible. Maybe I'll eat lunch with them today. They like that.
I hope May is treating you well. The smell of May air is sweet perfume, isn't it?
