Day 25: Garden Plot with House and Flamingos


Look at that lovely garden plot! My hubby is an avid gardener and I’m an avid encourager, so between the two of us, he does all the work to produce lots of delicious, well—produce.  We are slow to get to gardening since we moved here and are finally ready to take it on again.  I look forward to December and January, where we plan what we’d like to plant in the spring. (Read: I tell my dear man my crazy ideas—kohlrabi! Eggplant! Artichokes! Sunflower fort!  and he figures out where to put it all!)

We are so blessed to have this place---I get up every day and can’t believe how lucky I am to live where I do—a place that feels homey and laid-back and has some great quirks that crack me up: Coyotes howling in the neighborhood each night? Check. Train whistles at 2 AM, an abandoned turn of the century school and car graveyard down the street, our own “eternal sunrise” from the security lights at the prison a few miles away? Check-check-checkety-check! I don’t suppose everyone would like it out here, but it fits us.

Oh, and for the icing on the proverbial cake—we added a flock of plastic flamingos this summer, because what’s a yard without gaudy lawn ornaments?
