Using gardening as a metaphor for living... This blog is how some plants & flowers, creepy things, and the dead brought me back to life.

...wine and cheese, and details
It's almost officially summer which means having guests over. Tonight, my 20+ year friend is coming over to catch up. He's one of my favorite guests because he appreciates the little details (e.g. the tiny bat pick in the bread, the skull picks in the cheese, and the napkins). I can't imagine a better way to achieve one's daily fruit consumption than with sangria (all organic fruits!) This makes me think about a few weeks ago when a colleague brought in a hand full of mint, which she had clipped from her very own garden. I popped a sprig into my soda water and it worked magic! This morning I planted my very own mint (Mint Julep and Peppermint) in my garden. Now I have to wait patiently for it to grow so I can enjoy it.... just like I'm waiting patiently to enjoy tonight's treats,
