Things that bloom make me happy. I’ve been kind of down this week (nothing major, and of course it could be worse — I could be researching burial insurance or something equally morbid, and I try to keep that in mind). But today is a beautiful spring day and I spent the morning enjoying some of my flowers. The columbine are so short-lived (and they are natural to the area — when we moved here I had to look up what they were) and so pretty, aren’t they? I want to plant more, but I’m still nervous about frost. I think we’re safe by this point, but I just might wait until Memorial Day weekend to put my herb seeds in. We’ll see.
