Wednesday Vignette, easing back into it

I want to thank everyone who commented (and emailed, and messaged, and chatted in person) with condolences on the loss of our Lila. Your words were so appreciated. To know that so many people understood and shared what we were/are going through made the process a little more bearable.

I've neglected my garden over the last several weeks, it's encouraging to see things carrying on and not seeming to mind (like the fern table, below), but I look forward to easing back into gardening, and blogging. One step at a time, moving forward...

  6. It takes a lot of time to heal, getting lost in the garden helps. <3

    1. Yesterday I discovered about 300 seedlings of my Hibiscus. I've got a lot of work to do...lost for days!

  7. I know it was emotional for you in Austin at certain points, but I think it was good for you to get away to a new place and have someone take over your schedule for you.

    1. Yes there were a few wet-eye moments but it was definitely good to be there with you all in unfamiliar (yet familiar) surroundings.

    1. Coming home was hard, but getting away was indeed a huge help.

  10. It's hard when the rhythm of your life fundamentally changes. Two steps forward, one step back. Eventually, a new rhythm emerges. It was good to see you.

    1. Good to see you too, and that's it exactly. My life was so based around her schedule and needs. Everything has changed.

    Glad to have you back! Your fern table looks fabulous - are those Eared Lady Ferns? Those bright light green fronds are just delicious!

    1. Yes they are, I love them so much I bought two more during the LPO visit.

  12. The garden will keep going. Your fern table looks good, and it's good that the garden is there, because it has a healing property (and you do need to heal). I find the hard work and even the puttering around therapeutic.
