there be mountains
Taking a little time off to visit my son, Ian, in Seattle.
We are taking in all the sites unique to this place.
And as we travel, Mt. Rainier travels with us.

spring gardening in Wisconsin
Chilly nights have brought all my potted plants in! More
vulnerable outdoor plants are covered with sheets. New
garden shoots get a canning jar inverted like little campers
right over them.
Orphaned milk can lids make great planters! Blue
insulators are great to tuck in with plants.
Plants tucked in on our porch during several cold nights...like
a little reunion of violas & pansies. They are all hardy stock for
cool spring planting....but why not be kind when nights dip to 27.

For what seems like a moment, the apple blossoms arrive.
I know their time will be brief before the spring rain or breeze will whisk them away.
I attempt to take them in, to memorize each blossom, before they disappear as quickly as they arrived. They remind me of how tender a moment truly is...little winged flowers.
