What's that song by Bob Seeger?

"Up there in the spotlight your a million miles away, every ounce of energy you try to give away"
That feels like it sums up this week on a few different levels. Genuine care about Middle schoolers being introduced to Botany on a collectors level or putting on a dog and pony show for the brass.
There is something so rewarding and simple about walking around the garden on a Friday between the thunderstorms.
The rock garden starting into bloom.

Also, I really like to be able to walk a few hundred yards and enjoy the difference between cultivation and nature. My native meadow is filling in with Camas and Checkermallow, it's fun to see the slow development of a seeded parcel compared to the instant gratification of popping containers in the ground. One is so moldable and the other defined more by the laws of nature.

I think it's called "Turn the Page" and it's about time to do it.

Thunderstorms, torrential rain, whipping winds, calm and sunny, hail, rain, overcast and clear all in the span of an hour today.

Cheers,
