It is really we, not I, but the result is the same. We will spend time away from home and away from my castle. I’m becoming more of a yard snob I think, someone whose life revolves around the goal of bringing his gardens to perfection and won’t be fully “satisfied” until they are.
My current yard passion would be roses. Something about the tending to, pruning and nurturing, calms me. We will see if this stays with me or goes the way of so many endeavors and passes out of consciousness and into oblivion. Hang in there, we’ll see.
