There used to be a blueberry bush here. It never grew very big. Last weekend it moved next door to Trine's front yard.
Now there is pineapple sage (and yes, it actually smells like a damn pineapple), purchased from Rob at the market last weekend. Soon to come: summertime lemon balm and pineapple sage sun tea. Under the mulch there are seeds for California poppy (orange, lanky) and cockscomb celosia (rainbow, brain-shaped). Hoping the weekend's rain and the coming week's sun helps them feel at home enough to grow.
Today Jamie and Sara and Kate came over for brunch. We had orange juice and blueberry muffins and kale salad and caramel bread pudding and a good old time. They helped me ease into trying out the new duvet I bought for my bed: linen, blue with beachy white stripes. This afternoon I laid on the new sheets with the window open in the breeze, reading.
