Early morning tennis ball action Ball dropped! A Robert Capa moment.
(1) It has been grey and drizzling off and on for the last three days here in USDA zone 6b. Early this morning, I went to a garden center and one of the workers was unloading bedding plants.Being in a jovial mood, I called out to her, “Looks like you have to work in between the rain!”She called back with a slightly crabby “And through it!”What else could I say except, “Oops! Sorry about that.”Then she smiled a big smile so I guess my faux pas wasn’t so terrible. Still, I wish I had thought that one through and been a little more considerate. (2) So, what else did I do this morning? I came home from the garden center and I tied up eight bundles worth of the branches from last night’s slightly inebriated pruning session; Prairie Fire crabapple, Mohawk viburnum, Arrowwood viburnum, River birch and Manhattan euonymous.I made it a special point to do the bundling and tying while it was actively raining. And I got absolutely soaked to the skin and chilled to the bone.That all seemed perfectly appropriate, somehow.
I'm such a mush.We just watched the video of the Derby and I got all teared up listening to Calvin Borel, in the aftermath interview, sobbing and wishing his momma and daddy were there to see what he's accomplished with his life. What a sweet Cajun guy.
I take it that the Professor is on a golf course this perfect day to be alive. What else could elicit such a mood.
Pieces of April
Darling buds of May. Do rough winds shake them? Not today.
- the fluff of clouds, the delicacy of the blossoms, nothing is forced on the viewer
