all we are saying, is give peas a chance
These are the best looking pea plants I have ever grown. They are Sugar Snaps, which make the most sense to me to grow because there's no waste with the pods. And they like cool weather, which we've had no shortage of, at least in June. Late May was a scorcher. The peas are just starting to flower.
This is bunchberry, the "chihuahua" of the dogwood family. They are a low-growing woodland plant, and they bear clusters of red berries later in the summer. They grow wild here along the path to the cabin.
My bedroom phoebes have fledged. Let the building resume, I intend to be in there by September!
And, as long as I'm rambling, this is a good chance to let you know about my alter ego blog, Songs from Sky Blue Waters. SBW is a chance to let the writer in me come out, without distracting from the content and theme of Sand Creek Almanac. I will still continue to post here as usual, and even take some creative license, I just felt it was time to start another venture where I could experiment more with poetry, songwriting, and prose. I consider it a work in progress, very experimental in nature, so be warned. But feel free to offer constructive criticism as well!
