It’s finally springy! And though I’ve been in the yard already, now the ground is workable for plants, even with the rain we got this morning. I’m looking forward to a few hours out in the yard this weekend, and then, I’m going to make cake! -laugh-
I still have a few hosta to move/rescue, and a bit of hardscape to put in, and maybe a few new plants. You’ve gotta love a yard that’s been ignored for fifty years. Perennials are hands-down my favorites, but I’ve not gotten many in the last couple of years as I concentrate on the woody plants that need to go in first. This year, I find I’m finally starting to at least leaf through the perennial pages in the garden catalogs. It’s almost time to explode this garden in a big way.
Work went not-bad this week, and I’m confident that by this time next week, I will have made all the major changes that my editor and I have been talking about on the next Hollows book. I still want to go through it again to tweak the emotional responses, but the really hard stuff is almost done, and I’m pleased. Things are still changing, though. Just this morning, I had a new scene float up in my head, something that hadn’t occurred to me before and will serve two purposes. Double whammy content. That’s the best kind.
I’m still taking pictures for Halloween until Monday. Grab your friends and cameras, and have fun!
