By Day And By Night

By day I am a well respected fine gardener in upscale neighborhoods.

I tend a number of gardens that go from the perfectly manicured to those that are a bit more naturalistic.

All of them fit into the suburban paradigm.

By night I go home to the wilderness.

One day maybe I will fully become that wild man on the mountain top.

I will tend the wilderness. My suburban days will be over.

I will let the Angelica run free.

Because there will be no dead heading, it will set and disperse seed.

Right now I am a fine gardener with a split personality.

But I learn lessons in the wilderness that can be applied to suburbia.

By day and by night.
