It's been six months since my last post. Last Autumn, people lined up their Jack-o-lanterns in the forest to be reclaimed. The sky grew dark and the mountains seemed to close in. Weeks of rain and power outages were December and January. Oh, and the fog.
By February 2015, the first blooms opened. Spring beckoned us forward and we looked to the sky's golden hope and warmth. My companions are two senior cats.
Spring's glittering sheen and bold colors make The Island look feastive. As you can see, I am still learning the camera. Since the area is rich in photo opportunities, I'll enjoy the practice.
This year's garden consists of 21 assorted pots obtained from neighbor donations and thrift stores. They contain both flowers and vegetables. I read in some "comments" somewhere that a woman got great results when she threw a banana peel into the hole prior to planting. I did the same in one of my two tomato plants.
Near Port Renfrew.
Be wise in the forest, and Thanks for visiting.
