  • Spring is Getting Closer

    Last Sunday, in her 91st year, my mother passed away after a long battle with Alzheimer’s.  She had been institutionalized for the better part of a decade.  She is being cremated and did not wish to have a viewing or service or anything.  I commend her on her decision.  Furthermore, she had it all arranged and prepaid years ago. She was a woman who planned ahead.

    In Mother’s honour I will plant a yellow tea rose.  It was always her favourite.  Too bad she could not see my garden.  She would have approved, I think.  

    It’s coming to the end of February and my thoughts are on my garden.  This weekend I will start my tomato and pepper seeds and perhaps hyssop.  I’m excited.  It means Spring is getting closer.  I just hope we don’t get a long warm spell and then a sharp drop to below freezing weather like last year. Here’s hoping.  If you recall, it ruined so many spring blooming shrubs like lilacs and bridal wreath.
