the Mallow came of it's own accord. Some places it is in clusters, like this and like by the Raft. Not any reason that i can understand, as in more or less water, really, in these two places there's pretty much NO consistent water given. Just what the Sky gives. And then there are individual plants all over, here and there. Same mystery.
a totally and completely Perfect wild sunflower. Volunteer. Any day now the little black bristly caterpillars will appear and the leaves will be consumed. It will continue to grow and produce it's blooms. I forgot to plant Sunflowers again....the pretty kind from the seed packets. I wonder why i forget? Maybe it's still not too late?
it continues to be an issue for me. What do i PLANT here, as in promise to care for by giving water. This year the food plants are many and doing very well. Better than in a long time. Because of my being constant.
i think back to the garden at the house in Michigan. There was almost no watering there. There was Rain. I think about that, about what i Ask of this Place, how i use water. And i scrubbed the buck tubs with vinegar tonight...squeaky clean and their water clear and perfect for the night and until Wind blows debris.
it was work away first and then when i was back home, the day was many things with Wind from the North East, like it was that day last year when there was the Micro Burst and the fence went down and my shoulder got smashed and the shoulder is still never again how it was before that. Thinking about how it is here. Home.
