Slipping, slipping into the future...
I can't believe it's been almost a month since my last post, and I'm embarrassed to say I haven't been leaving comments in about as long, either. Thanks for inquiring after me! I'm fine, but fall is always the absolute busiest time in the garden for me. This year even more so because I keep removing more and more buckthorn, and I've transplanted things really too large for transplanting, created a new xeric/Colorado bed, etc.
After coming in for the day, I've been dirty, aching, and exhausted. After throwing my garden clothes in the laundry, I make myself some food (and have been really trying to eat healthier foods, which takes a lot of time and is a whole other story!)... and collapse on the couch.
But my couch is not near my computer and I don't have a laptop... It seems the more time I spend away from the computer, the less I remember it's there. I've also been a bit our of sorts after finding out a close friend from college passed away. She was 42. Of everyone I went to college with, she's one of the few who left a lasting impression. A truly nice person, genuine and caring, always willing to help others, very accepting, always finding the best in people. I admired that and tried to be more like her myself.
As always, I admire all of you who post so regularly, and with all those photos, too!
I really do miss keeping up with you and hope to catch up in about another week or so. I'll have photos for you, too! (Though those from MOBOT and the nice visit with Beckie will have to wait until I'm done in the garden this season.) Thanks for understanding!
