Back Yard Tulip

My mother has been on my mind a lot recently. Our birthdays are two days apart in early April, and last year she and I traveled from California to Oregon together on the day between our birthdays.

She loved flowers. I see the tulips blooming in our back yard and I remember her noticing them as she walked toward her little cottage for the first time that day. “Oooohh!” she said. “Look at them!” The blooms this year come from the same bulbs that lay hidden under the earth since then.

It’s been a long time since I posted – time to get back on the horse. In the interest of keeping it simple and therefore possible, this is just an announcement and some pretty pictures. More articles will be coming, as I can. Step by step, my energy is returning, matching the return of the light. And the flowers! The greenery!

Life is good.

And, the potlucks have been growing in so many ways – more regular potluckers, more fun, great conversations, and my older boy is even doing a little child care to keep the younglings occupied. I surprise myself by having a better time every month!
