This spring day was gorgeous. My back yard was so beautiful. At this point in the spring, not too much has gone wrong, the growth is tidy. In mid-summer the beetles will have ravaged the roses, and their shapes will have grown into wild forms all their own. Perennials will be rangey.
Today I planted out tomatoes and basil, and dug up dandelions. It was 68 degrees, sunny and dry–a perfect day.
In the evening we went and saw Son #3 play his first gig with a young, just-starting-out band calling themselves This Side Up. He played drums and certainly held his own with the rest of the band (not that I’m biased!) I always enjoy his drum playing — he started on drums years ago and then set them aside for several years to concentrate on guitar. But he’s got great rhythm and we’ve always secretly hoped he’d get back to playing drums one day. Don’t tell him I said that! ;-)
