Garden Heart.

I've been avoiding my garden for many reasons, the main one being that it turned into such a disastrous experiment last year that I felt like I needed to take the summer off and let the slugs be kings of their dirt patch again.  Yesterday, I finally decided to go outside and take a look at my sad mud square.  I took my rake and started to gather up some of the leaves and clutter and low and behold the hosta I had planted the year before had sprouted back! I almost cried! Then I looked over to the left of the hosta and my 'bleeding heart' was blooming! It was awesome! So with a serious attitude adjustment and a new plan of attack, I have decided to put some love into my garden again this summer. First I am going to do some major weeding and then I will plant a few more shade loving plants...it's all baby steps for this green heart.
Final note: My mail box has been filled with beautiful mail this week.  Postcards, envelopes full of old memories and ribbons, and lovely letters about time and beauty.  I also sent out a whack of mail last week...and my dear mail art buddy Jessica finally received her 'wolves' zine! And she did a lovely post about it here, along with a whole stack of other amazing mail art goodness! Three cheers for mail!

Oh I love them! Are you doing the Sketchbook Project 2012, I can't remember.

It's going into winter here, but I've thrown a few seed bombs around and I'm hoping they will sprout in the Spring!
