My neighbor,who had never been inside my house before, gifted me with this salad as he prepared to leave for a trip. I am grateful. As you know, I am struggling with the divisions in this country. This simple gift represents hope to me. That, and our brief gardening/sharing plants conversation.
We talked about how he wants a simple fence across his back yard, with ornamental grasses on his side of the fence. Amazing to me, my neighbor on the other side told me two weeks ago that he too wants to put ornamental grasses at the back of his yard. Like mine.
I am picturing how this could look, with the three yards displaying a kind of unity in landscaping. This calms me.
Last night I went with Carrye to Modern Quilt Guild. I hadn't been in quite awhile. It is at a different location now, at a once-upon-a-time dairy barn that is now a beautiful venue restored by the Woman's Art Club of Cincinnati Foundation.
Appropriately, this cow lives in the front yard. Isn't she a treat?
