Though The Tangled Nest is still quite new, and it may seem early to be going on a blog vacation, I will nevertheless be taking a short spring break from:
1. The List (you know the one)
2. The cold Seattle weather
3. Extremely edifying books
4. Things that plug in
I was going to add a 5, 6, and 7, but I realize that number one, “The List,” pretty well sums it up. Maybe you can find a way to set yours aside for a bit, too.
In that spirit: Though it was past bedtime the other night, and though she was in her fluffy pajamas, and though we had already started enough sunflowers to plant a field in Kansas, Claire somehow convinced me that we should start some more, right away, in the dark of night. “How can you have too many sunflowers?” Indeed. I had to turn some eggs out of their carton in order to have container-space for more seeds.
I love how gardening can happen in any unsuspecting moment. Neighbors beware–young sunflower deliveries coming soon. Meanwhile, I’ll see y’all in a week.
