Spring Dance

a pair of cardinals

in my garden – in spring dance

they zip here, fly there

pecking at freshly tilled soil

a cold and windy spring day

Potato Harvest!!

This is by far the coolest thing I’ve ever planted. You know those potatoes that are always growing in the fridge? This it’s cousin. Yep, I stuck it in the dirt in this

A tide pod container!

I read up on growing potatoes and it said the time to reap was when the leaves started looking a little wilty. It started looking like that to me two weeks ago. But I curved my enthusiasm..or is it curb.

Anyway, today I could wait no more. Now I know how those little potatoes end up being a party to the harvest. They grow like a family – parents and children.

I put the plant back in another pot with a really big potato attached to the stem. Wonder if that’s the same one I planted…I don’t know if it’s done, but we shall see.

Well, these parents and children are going in the saucepan with olive oil, garlic and the few string beans that was ready.😊

A happy Saturday to you😊

A Rainbow

wp-1591811684668.jpgthis cloud lurking overhead
has claimed me
it snuggles in
displacing the thread of hope
I’ve been holding fast to
it flits in the breeze of the blues
swishing through my fingers
at every grasp

I force myself into the garden
it looks thirsty
I turn on the garden hose
and there through the fine sprays
a rainbow

Thursday Doors – Around Brooklyn

An apartment building door.

Yep, that’s to a garden. Not attached to a fence. A fancy fenceless door. Odd!

I’ve never seen those on a door before, only on windows

The bottom of this door is down some steps.

That’s all for this week. Doorscursions in lockdown has been anemic at best. These I scored while on essential errands from the car.

Flower of The Day FOTD

For Cee’s Flower Of The Day FOTD where leaves are also allowed. Although, I am thinking this leaf really crashed the party by growing through the middle of this allium. Another photo taken on my walk of someone else’s garden.
