Open morning

Now that I don’t have to be awake or doing anything in the morning, I find myself gravitating to an early schedule. I’m in bed at 10pm a lot of nights. I’m up at 7:30am sometimes. But usually I’m 11pm to 9am. A lot of sleep, if I were asleep the whole time.

It’s the garden work that gets me up early. I try to work for an hour, rest for an hour. Plug away. Move things forward. Things that can only be done in the day.

Every morning I’m excited to come out and see what’s changed. What’s come up in the garden, how the ground cover and wild flowers are doing. Today, a new purple bloom.
