In the shadows

on Wednesday, July 11, 2007

I have been sitting in the shadow of the front Maple tree.
I look at the French Lilac bed.
I think. I imagine. I write. I draw.
I am planning how to have four season interest here.
At the second hand shop I found an old bird bath.
It fit in with the French Lilacs and the miniature Crepe Myrtles.
Today I go in search of a vine for the bird bath and a herb.

Each growing spot will have a water feature, bird feeder and a herb.
Each will have shelter for the birds and something for the butterflies.
Each will have flowers in three seasons.

It is here I took out all the mums that died.
I think I will try Asters this time!
