My time in the garden this past week has been spent looking over my shoulder – an involuntary reflex I developed, it seems, over the past 10 years of gardening with my dog, Shileau, tagging along behind me. She died last Saturday morning; I wrote about it and posted some of my favourite Shileau photos yesterday.
Although gardening will not be the same without her, spring continues to unfold, with new awakenings every day. It’s been a dry month, which is not good for the garden, really, nor our well, and yesterday’s cloud cover brought approximately six drops of rain with it so I’m hoping that the precipitation forecast for tomorrow and Monday does, in fact, arrive.
Here are Six things from my garden. Be sure to visit The Propagator‘s post as well – he’ll have links to scads of other Sixes from around the world.
