What She Saw

It was short and sweet and now it's over until they both return in mid October. I think of the future when the Sisters are retired and can spend more time in the mountains.

The first order of business will be lessons in editing. What stays and what goes? How does the idea of definition work in tandem with chaos? There will need to be some picture book learning to go along with hands on field work. You have to be intimately familiar with your weeds to edit with finesse.

My paths and the Great Lawn were mowed on Sunday. The gardens were show ready for Sister #1's last day of mini-vacation.

Except for the hail damaged hosta, they did not disappoint. The gardens are in high bloom.

One day there will be more eyes watching over this civilized chaos.

With more editing there will be more room for blossoms.

She saw the liatris. "I really like that."
Then we should have more.

I definitely concur with her comments on the Liatris! More is better.

So your sisters are coming to the mountains in retirement?

Bev the Sisters have been talking like they want to keep the place and do like my parents have and winter in Florida. Apparently Florida has been hotter than hell this summer which makes a NC mountain top all the more attractive. My big hope is they will retire before my mom needs real care. It's going to be close.

Ah, I see. Yes, I am doing the elderly mom thing right now. I hope for the best for you, your sisters and your mom; it is never easy. It would be great to have them nearby.
