feeling thankful and centered for time away with friend b and madlyn j. i treasure these times and experiences, grateful for the ability to be giggly or quiet, thoughtful or expressive in this company. rustic met sparkly, kitchy met modern, and all was good.
to simply be and to be so.
i love them.
down it must go. the beetles are winning. she had been here since 1960, but within 2 afternoons she was felled. the last few years' rings are so close together, showing stress from drought. her branches are covering the entire left side of the yard.
the scent is glorious...
