Spring is almost here (feeling grounded)
This bulb looks like it's giving me the finger. I bought it today at the plant store when I stopped off to talk about Spring planting, which should happen in the next few weeks. I asked about what to plant in my partial-shade / shade garden space, and had a great conversation with the guy who works there who has some good tips about gardening for cheap.
And then I bought this bulb. I've already forgotten what kind of flower it is. It just sits in water for a week or two and it will turn into a few purple flowers. I'm excited to see this bulb grow as a sign of impending Spring.
It's been a stressful couple of weeks, which is why I don't have much to report. I'm feeling more grounded today, but a lot of that could be due to the warmth and sunshine that's going on right now. I walked around for about three hours this afternoon, which just felt so good. I dropped off my film from my Holga, so I'll have that early next week and I can't wait to see what's on it. Now I've got the windows open, soon I'll be playing some music, making art, and getting ready for Shabbat.
