an alice character in my garden, sanctuary, and holding hands

Today is Thursday and you all know what that means. Three beautiful things from the past week:

1. I stopped by the garden on Thursday to see if anything needed to be picked. The peppers are abundant, but the tomatillo has been stripped of most of its promising blossoms. The culprit? I suspect the many-legged green fellow I found on one of the branches. He looked guilty when I asked him about it and grabbed onto the branch even tighter.

2. I rode my bike along the C&O Canal Towpath Sunday afternoon. On the way back, I stopped just below the dam in a peaceful spot on the Potomac called Little Falls. Birds tend to congregate there to hunt fish and to get a drink, and a rock outcropping allows you to sit and look out over the river. The sun was low in the sky when I finally decided to head back out onto the trail to make my way home.

3. Rudi and I were holding hands last night as we left the ballpark when we came to a point where a pay phone blocked our path. Rudi went to one side and I to the other, and we reached up high, high, high over the phone so we didn’t have to let go.

This is not beautiful per se but I’d still appreciate if you’d help me with it. My friend Suzanne has returned home to Maine for the time being because her mom is having some serious health issues. Please visit her blog and let her know that she and her family are in our thoughts or prayers. Group thought is an amazing thing and some mighty powerful vibes are needed.

I wish I had a garden, but alas, an apartment and garden don’t go well together. Thanks for your comment. If only I lived in Harry Potter’s world!
