Now that the long winter and wet early spring are behind us, it’s good to raise the spirits. Sad things piled up over here…our son and daughter-in-law and grand kids took off for a couple of years far away, a good friend died leaving an unfill-able space, maybe a health issue or two…one does adjust as one must. So of course when MY spirits need raising it’s car wash time…
and here’s the deal…it ALWAYS works for me.
Though if the car-wash somehow is lack-luster on a particular day, there’s the possible choice of garden-retail -therapy
and the garden itself…
and this time of year, the tree peony…
with the work needed to make it nice like getting rid of the bluebells and the dreaded lesser celandine.
The umbrella is up
the porch plants are out of the basement
and the “staring season” has begun
