Dense

We have come to learn that beaches are living things. 
In the summertime, at one of our local beaches, the sand is soft and warm and goes on forever. But in winter, it all disappears!!!  It’s a little alarming the first time you experience it. 

I have no idea where it goes (…maybe south…). But I do know that we can count on it to return when the weather warms up. 

In the meantime, there is no shortage of exposed, beautiful, smooth beach stones. In fact, the beach is crowded with them!

Dreaming in Green

This morning we woke up to find we’d received a fresh dusting of snow overnight. Pretty?  Yes. But it was difficult to detect any signs of green in the landscape. 


(Geranium cuttings biding their time on the kitchen window sill.)

C’mon Mother Nature! March is the month of things green.  For instance, Number One son’s birthday is on St Patrick’s Day, thereby painting the weekend with all things green…. Mostly an artificial green. 

Its the time to plant seeds in anticipation of this years garden. Onion, tomato and pepper. But those green are months away. 

So, I’m taking you back to last summer’s garden for an uplifting hit of that verdant shade. 


Some garden froth. 


A Beach Plum before it’s time. 


Garden thyme. 


A harvest of peas. 


Some Seyval Blanc. 

Tonight we observe Earth Hour. Just another way to get our “Green” on. 

And … last night’s dusting of snow had melted away during the day, confirming that we are on the other side of winter.  Greener days are ahead! 

WPC – it IS easy being green
