Earlier I posted on the glass exhibit inside the Chihuly Garden and Glass. Here are my photos of this wonderful garden in the heart of Seattle – during the day and then again at night. This is an incredible place to visit and I can’t wait to go again!
Good news! Finally the weather is warm enough to get to work in the garden. I should be out there cleaning the beds, washing the deck, rearranging the pots that have been stacked for the winter and planning all that needs to be done. I need to buy plants for my myriad of fabulous flower pots, and of course then they need to do be planted! Now for the bad news – I can’t get excited about it. I don’t have my usual enthusiasm to get out there and dig in the dirt, and I think I’ve figured out why. I don’t want to stress my hands doing this intense physical labor. My hands are recovering from their respective surgeries. I’m doing physio exercises for mobility and strength, my chiropractor is working with me and I’m doing yoga. All of these things are helping my hands to regain their function, but they are not there yet. They need more work and more time. I’m totally optimistic , but it is hard to be patient. Really hard. At this time I want to save my hands for creative endeavors in the house!
I decided to wander around the yard and see what was growing, and was delighted to find these familiar faces. Sculptures are scattered around my garden where they give a reason to smile when you chance upon them.
