The one word forecast for today’s weather on the front page was: miserable. And by late afternoon that would have been an accurate description. By the time nightfall came around, I would have described it as a dark and stormy night. Before that, though, it was perfect weather for planting tulips. I am thankful for the cool, cloudy and breezy weather we had while cutting the dahlias and planting the bulbs. And I am tremendously grateful for our warm and cozy house protecting us from the howling wind outside in the midst of night.

About dmdubay

Since retiring from Northwest Airlines and moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have more time to devote to writing. My first novel, "Tales of Two Sisters" was published over a year ago. I have been writing poetry for a long time and am attempting to collate my poetry into a short book, with pictures. A sequel to "Tales of Two Sisters" should be getting closer to completion soon. Gardening and tending the vineyard take a lot of time in the summer. Even though I love the outdoors, these activities do cut down on my writing. So I appreciate that wintertime allows me time to write. Writing, for me, is what brings things into focus and helps me to make sense of the things that life brings. It is a gift to me and I hope that it will be to you also.

    I appreciated this description. I was wishing I was with you and Bud out in your garden. I remember the times in the spring helping with the dahlias. I’m so happy I have seen your gardens and home. I pretend I am there with you and you don’t seem so far away.
