Time to get dirty

It’s a gorgeous spring Friday and the weatherman is predicting a summer-like weekend. What to do? Why, get out in the garden, of course.

I’m thrilled to see that my lilacs are in serious bud. The removal of a few trees several years ago has given the lilacs needed sun and they are responding with lots of flowers-to-be. I’m especially pleased that the lilacs I transplanted from my childhood home in Yonkers are finally going to bloom this year. My mother used to send me and my sisters to school with large bouquets of this most fragrant flower as a gift to our classroom teacher. A sweet flower and sweet memories.

Because of my Unfortunate Incident last year, I haven’t been able to garden for two years, and I’ve missed the therapy of digging in the dirt, rearranging the landscape in my little quarter acre, fussing over all those growing things. I’m looking forward to some serious garden time this weekend.

Can’t wait.
