A Slight Change of Palette
More and more color is showing up in things I’m working on lately. Evidence of the seasons is apparent in whatever I do — there’s just no avoiding it.
My flower garden is bursting with color already, and the zinnias aren’t even 6 inches high yet. But already there are coreopsis (a wonderful little perennial,) daylilies, petunias, a few peonies, clematis climbing on the fence, and dwarf dahlias. I’ve prepared a new area of the flower bed for a collection of dinner plate dahlias that are on order from Holland.
It’s difficult to sit and write when all that beauty is calling. Sadly, there won’t be many springlike days. We are already crowding into summer. Can anyone seriously doubt climate change is upon us?
