Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

The day began with little rains

It was another take the GED to the jail day, and the air was so sweet and full of new life I almost couldn't bear it. You could almost HEAR the leaves popping out. And the soft rain was just enough to bring up all those wonderful earthy odors. I nearly hyperventilated.

It was the last of the five tests, and all four of the inmates passed. YAY! That's four more people that have a better chance at believing in themselves and making an honest living.

The clouds had cleared by the time I got home, and the backyard was begging to be noticed.
Light behind the magnolia tree.

The epitome of shyness. One of our local garden writers calls them invasive thugs, but I applaud their initiative. Go violets! Good on you! DH will be running the mower over them tomorrow. I should romp out and pick a dainty bouquet tonight.

    I love violets! They are never thugs. Not like crabgrass.
