& now, a gardening writer.
her blog, sharing nature's garden,
often participates in garden bloggers' bloom day,
in which those with green thumbs & flexible clicker-fingers
post photos of what's blooming wherever they are on the 15th of the month.
so, even though i'm not a gardener of any kind,
neither actual nor virutal,
i still love to see spring busting out all over.
so in homage to diana & her fellow dirt-players,
i snapped some shots of the first, fresh signs of spring
here in the heart of texas.
up above, a pretty pink bud on our neighbor's peach tree.
down below, the bright new leaves of the same neighbor's willow tree, waving in the warm breeze.
a bradford pear tree's delicate white blossoms in another neighborhood yard.
the eye-popping purple flowers of a red bud tree.
& the grape-ish color [& aroma] of a downtown mountain laurel tree.
& finally, i thought i might share a photo of what i'm growing:
recently rallying for adequate state funding for public education.
[perry refers to our governor,
who is always perfectly coiffed & almost always an inadequate leader.
so, what is your garden growing, either literally or metaphorically??
