Widget's growing up! still can't wrap my head around the PNW being 22-25 degrees hotter than New England. Was just reading about the record breaking overheated temps of water and core in the Arctic as well. I don't know why I thought this would be a great time to grow multiple types of delphiniums and plant them everywhere with next year's blooming in mind...

I'm still planting things out in the field in small manageable batches, in the aftermath of our heat spike. A couple of times I heard myself saying out loud to the landscape and plants 'this is the new New England. We're all figuring out what it means together.' The heat elongated the mating season of the tree frogs by three weeks. I enjoyed them hanging around well past memorial day but none of it yet feels truly normal. Trying to keep Widget calm should be fun ...

Widget probably wasn't involved even if she was, right?

for me languishing is the ultimate luxury of being slightly bored and fairly impatient as a teenager in the middle of summer, or at least the teenager I was. Because I value my moodiness (otherwise, I would be a very good friend to myself) I have always seen the corrollary value of that time in my life when I was just pure mood, period. Or a plant that's been put in the wrong location/transplanted clumsily, etc.

lovely coincidence. Just a few days back my husband and I each signed up to do the class together as an outgrowth of our Wednesday evening drawing nights. it looks cool. And very inky.

seems appropriate to share i finally had one of my weird dreams - about you - and it was just a few nights back. Widget couldn't or wouldn't sleep. You were sitting on a little foot stool in a hexagon tiled bathroom from my early 20's telling her the legend of all black cats sharing part of the same soul from the first original black cat of deep night(this is an actual Thing)while wearing red and white striped P.J.'s i had as a child. Onesies with a matching cap. in the dream I consciously thought 'deb gorr would never wear something like this. it's mass produced.' Widget was unimpressed by your sharing. She was wild and willful. i loved her.

anyone who comes here to work - or primarily complain about how much of that they'll have to do - mentions, without fail 'the vegetation'. Even in the dead of winter they remember what it's like in the growing season and mention it. without fail. I'm always like "uh-huh. so?"

and sometimes they just gave that spark of red. is it from the bark? what color were the flowers? (I would try this is why I'm asking. with raw silk or something.)
