memo from the back deck

img_0406 Gardening is one of the few things I can do to ensure that my filthy jeans and shirt aren't slowly becoming a shroud. I mean the pleasure to be gotten from putting things in the ground, tending them, and watching them grow is unprecedented. It keeps you alive. If you don't have a garden then I don't expect you to understand, but maybe you can still enjoy some scenes from my yard in these early days of June. Other highlights from the weekend include a veggie reuben at Dot's, Newberg with Billy and Cathy, quiet coffee mornings with Lance, and just a little bit of sunshine.
