Today we transplanted four breas into our garden, one big, one middle, two small.
|the big brea, north border, east of house|
on the bristlemallow
a splotch of pink
though bristlemallow flowers salmon-mellow
for the lake Veronica favors a balanced biome
beyond tadpole hatches
lapwings & kiskadees eating them
start out with iris throws
drum of hammers on the half-tiled roof
whine of electric saw
drone of diesel-powered moto
cadence of men speaking castellano
Sewing circle happens on Wednesday afternoons here. Ten stitchers & felters today. Buoyed by confidence gained earlier this month by crocheting a cotton dishcloth, I've begun crocheting a mouse from eggplant-color wool yarn.
