New Horizons


My Greenhouse is no more. Hurricane Michael huffed and puffed and blew it sideways, irreparable. Bennie hauled it away late in January for the scrap aluminum.

My next project will include salvage of the urbanite, brick and pavers. The slab for the Florida house and garage was poured this week. The project manager remarked that I would have a mighty small yard. I said I would happily cut my grass with long handled grass shears.

I thought about what Etta Katherine used to say when I gardened in the Metro area, that I could grow more flowers for a bouquet in the smallest space she'd ever seen. Square foot gardening is about to become a reality. Lack of shade will be a challenge.

I gardened in one spot for 30 years in a suburban yard that was less than 80 feet wide. Then I gardened with unlimited space in the country where we moved a pasture fence and had grass between us and a field on the other side. The hurricane remodeled that space. It will take a long time to get it straightened.  I'll still have shade there and remain undaunted by the sun in the other space.


I'm not too old and it's not too late.

I did read Flower Lady's comment. I closed GOOGLE+ comments to get rid of the tenacious Mumbai Escort Service who chose me for free advertising.

Painful Scene from a John Wayne Movie

This is one of my favorite movies. It's hard to watch it now but the acting is superb and the ending doesn't change.

I said once, "A peaceful person dies a peaceful death." Lane said, "You don't know that." I'd seen it enough times to really believe it. I still believe we get to do it our own way if we're not interfered with too much.

Sometimes There Is a Break in the Clouds

Despite 2018 being one of the worst years we ever endured, sometimes there's a break in the clouds.
