|Neighbor on NE Mallory with a palm tree growing|
|Sequoia-ish conifer along my dog walk route|
|Little umbrella shaped tree just before blooming|
|Giant begonia perhaps, or species of hydrangea???|
and lots of rain-loving moss and mushrooms.
|Neighbor's mossy, fern-sprouting rock wall|
|Mushroom sundaes by a mossy fence|
|Carpet of moss along my street|
Rarely do I see a traditional lawn with hedges around the foundation, or a totally white house.
|Fall plantings along NE Mallory St.|
|Neighbor Margot's house last October with a selection of shrubs and trees|

A week ago I snapped a nearly full moon on a clear night. My soul leapt!
The plants seem to love it and blossom through the filtered light.
|Our new pear sapling in bloom last week despite the gray days|
My new granddaughter Iva Mae Hazel and I take our frequent jaunts in a rain-outfitted stroller. She’s dry and content, and so am I. New life, nourished by water and now some sun quickens my soul.
