I work with numbers. All day. Financial statements, cash flow analysis, complex, multi-page spreadsheets. There is something intensely soothing, satisfying, about numbers and how they all tie so beautifully together.
But at the end of the day, there is joy too, in the tumbled, messy glory of the garden at this time of year.
Breadseed poppy. Grown in partial shade, the color is softer, the flower more delicate than usual.
An unknown Austin rose. Planted several years ago, it is just now hitting it's stride, it's long arching canes covered with buds.
Pat Austin - one of my favorites!
