But there were complications almost immediately. The fence was not straight. Several pieces of the repair went backwards instead of forward (to be explained in another post), and now part of the Things I get to do today involved waiting for the glue to dry on the corner that broke off when one of the now-two sections of the cutting board fell on the floor because of my carelessness and inattention.
|A centering of pansies|
So while I wait I'm going to rearrange the pansies. Two years ago an eager and welcoming row of yellow pansies flowered along the sidewalk to our front door. Several of them survived the slugs, the cold of winter and my sometimes-neglect of summer to leaf and bloom yet another year. And thanks to the wet glue, I'm noticing that they've gone to seed. Bless their tiny hearts! As seeds will do their arrangement was centralized and had no resemblance to a row. So for 20 minutes I settled next to the earth and gently dug, separated, and transplanted the tiniest of pansy babies. Forget the gluing and woodworking. Let's play with babies.
|Now the tiny babies are spaced and ready to spring forth into|
a sweetness of yellow.
