Where the sidewalk ends, redux

Sidewalk's end, phase two.

Then there were crocuses. Now there are hundreds of grape hyacinths. It’s a stunning little place beneath the black walnut tree.

Too busy for much else today. New garage door mechanism (cable broke a couple of weeks ago), and estimates on roof-repair from last week’s wind. Plus, baking (more on that tomorrow) and cooking, and generally working all day. Walking the dog this afternoon was my only respite.


About pattiblaine

Raised under the name of Snyder in the upstate NY town of Vestal, I've worked as a typesetter, a fast food salad bar tender, an art reviewer, a waitress, a part-time nanny, and a very-bad-with-phones temp. Once upon a time I was all-but-thesis toward a Masters in Art History. Now I'm just a mom with a lot of fiber squirreled away throughout the house. We call it insulation. In 2013 I completed a life-long learning program at Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School, and am a postulant toward the diaconate in the Episcopal Diocese of Rochester, NY. In addition to coordinating volunteers for the soup kitchen, I volunteer as a tutor at a deeply impoverished city elementary school, and am a docent at the Memorial Art Gallery.

    I have grape hyacinths in 3 different places in my yard. They are all so pretty right now! I love their cheerful blue-violet color! Also, they are the first flowers to bloom in my yard, too, since I don’t have any crocuses. Must be lovely to see them under that big tree!
