a wheel

 this window is on my neighbor's tractor shed
 and this is the little bit of japanese indigo
 that i planted in a pot
it weathered a tough summer
drought and flood in the pot
  now blossoming and setting seed
at school
a pathetic attempt
i wanted to see 
if i could raise any seed
a very rocky week at school. 
yay friday

sounds lovely. frustrating to be so unproductive.

that round window and crackled red paint is a terrific sight (as is little plants valiantly attempting to secure the next generation)

Deep breath, Velma...very rocky indeed.

Velma said...

ronnie, and h.t., i think i'm a little cracked...
nancy, i think it's a go. my little patch did well, and if you have a good spot, maybe even remay cover, you're cookin' with gas.
jean, thanks, i see little seeds in there.
jude, absolutely
serena, me, too
cait, breathe, you too, out on dommie on the trail...a deep breath for me. please.

Not as pathetic as my attempt. I only managed two sprigs and sprouting!

Velma said...

penny, this pot is the leftover...i had a nice little plot that i harvested leaves from twice.

Hope you had a nice Saturday. Your little plants are giving it there all it seems! I'm recovering from a day with my students here, nice visit, cold woods, nice hot mulled cider. Yay Sunday!

Velma said...
