The clematis is finally starting to do its thing. the weather has not been inviting to the blossoms. Its OK, not complaining about the winter weather in summer- there are flowers and the ferns are loving all the rain.
I went downtown yesterday after going to
Ace to get some Mole discouragement.
The soil is so soft from gallons of rain that a mole has made the yard her home. I don't want to hurt her I just want to send her elsewhere , to a better yard.
Downtown is dismal. I thought I might give it another chance. "Thnak you"
Still a long way to go to bring our downtown back, Everything moved to the mall when it was built, now the mall is terrible, shops shut forever. It was built on land that was a huge beautiful nursery- how about bring that back??? Homeless moved into downtown making it a less desirable place unless you are fond of stabbings.
Online is the only option for shopping.
The only shop worthwhile is the yarn and wool shop- I did not go in because I know the danger! I did pop into the antique mall just for a look around- this creepy doll was lingering there. No body wanted him.
The orphans did.
They are teaching him how to stop, look and listen, before crossing the table. Caution is always a consideration .
He looks surprised about everything, orphans like that sort of interest in life, a new day every day. "Surprise" - WOW look at the stuff, the flowers, the table, the remarkable onion in the orange bowl. It is all so thrilling.
This guy is not giving up on wonder!
A STOP sign, dismantled, very like democracy. That is where we are at the moment.
On we go.
