Weeknights

Sometimes when I'm in Seattle, I think about that new peony plant that Peggy gave me, which has one large bud and may or may not muster the strength to bloom this year. Or I think about what I keep saying are giant poppies in the circle in the middle of the driveway, or the green strawberries clustered on the plants just outside the greenhouse. I wonder how the raspberry canes are doing in all that wind, and whether Tom remembered to take another meat co-op dog bone out of the freezer and put it into the fridge to defrost for Emmy. Sometimes I remember to ask him about one or two of these things over the phone at night, most times I just wait til I can get home and see for myself.

The cool thing about peonies? They can't bloom without help. They require ants. Ants who nibble and set them free.

REALLY!? For reals!? I wonder if we have ants...

Lisa, that's great! I just love your color sense and think with the necklaces you've made something that could be very ordinary (or even tacky!) into something special. That's true artistry to me, being able to make something wonderful out of materials that just would not be the same in anyone else's hands. Same goes for what you do with embroidery, doilies, tanks, decals, etc.
