It has been a long winter. We've had some warm days, but winter is hanging on. Tonight will be in the twenties. I haven't planted anything and for that I am glad. Also glad I haven't brought out all my citrus from the storage closet where they overwinter.
I did make it to the garden center though. Looking for a tall species of phlox. They didn't have the right color that is already growing in my garden. Problem is, at the moment, there is actually room to plant more than a seed and before too long everything will have grown so large nothing else will fit. There was so much to look at here and though it is expensive, I still go there. Some of my favorite garden items and decorations came from Southwest Gardens and Nursery. I have to stop myself from buying more. I have enough. I loved the white pottery and of course, the little finches.
The wind is howling. Last week I lost some roof shingles from terrible winds. I don't know who I'll find that will do such a small job. The roof is high pitched, tall and at the angle it is, I don't think anyone would attempt it but a roofer. I don't have a handyman and they probably wouldn't attempt it either.
Winter hasn't been for naught. I did write a novel this year and will start a second draft soon. Publishing is so much different today than it was thirty years ago. Back then, no one would have self-published a book and yet, nowadays it is commonplace. Problem with that, the author has to do all the work. I am not a technological wonder and I am an introvert, so I don't think I'll be going that route. It is my last chance at the dream and I chose to go there. We'll see what happens.
I still have problems commenting and even as anon the captcha thing makes me identify buses etc., about twenty times. It makes it too hard to try. I've even noticed some differences in posting. It has been too long. Happy spring to all!
