There is a ritual i have developed over the years: as March opens, i begin to look for signs of new growth under the leaves, the bloodroot shoot, the bluebells, etc. I am grieving my old garden plots and yard – 26 years – i could tell you every plant with my eyes closed. hard to let go.
Here i am in new terrain, rocky, sloped ground, standing water – i have no idea what i will find here, but probably not much more than was on 19th when i first moved there. I can start again. So i got these two simple succulents today – never grown them before – and rejoice in their beauty!
