I have not been posting very regularly because I have been so quietly busy. There were preparations for the fabulous Bridge of Flowers Plant sale which went off on Saturday without a hitch. I think we had 36 plants left over. Out of over 1300!
On Sunday we hosted the Presentation of Elliott (in the plaid suit) and celebrated. And celebrated!
Monday was just one thing after another and yesterday, in the heat, I was out of the house all day, with first graders at the Bridge of Flowers, at the Clarke School Hearing Center, at the Forbes and Jones libraries, and at a Bridge of Flowers meeting in the evening. Then wild thunderstorms all night that left us the gift of more than 2 inches of rain.
This morning I walked barefoot through the garden to inspect all the newly refreshed flowers. The birds were singing, trilling, warbling, and calling, as they hadn’t for years. Or, to put it another way, birdsong as I had not heard it for years. What a gift. And why?
I think I may even be able to hear my tiny fountain this summer. I am so happy. If only my husband’s morning newspaper didn’t make such a racket!
