home again - aaaahhh

What do you know? While I was gone, my two pathetic azalea bushes bloomed! The other foliage is starting to sprout, too. It looked like paradise to me this morning when I went out to get the newspaper off the driveway. I decided I like the wild, unkempt look of my own postage stamp-sized front yard better than the manicured gardens of Palm Beach. So there. Went to the nursery and got some other flowers, then spent the afternoon digging and adding peat moss and moving a few things around to more suitable spots. I'm exhausted, but it's the good kind that comes from planting. I now understand why people garden. Suitcase is unpacked, laundry almost done, feet up. I will go to my Studio Six meeting tomorrow, but won't stay more than a couple of hours because I have to come home and pack clothes and supplies for my next workshop in Lawrence, KS. with the Kansas Art Quilters. As a bonus while I am there, I will see my old friend Bonnie, who moved from NY to Lawrence some years ago and whom I see for 2 hours maybe once a year when she comes East to visit. She has promised to show me the art sights in Kansas City and I'll spend 2 nights at her house. Thank you all for your virtual hugs while I was gone. I needed them. And I'll hold them for whenever you need 'em back.
