I’ve been reading Dak over at the Conf. the last few days. I have a lot to say about the two subjects she’s writing but, I plan to take my time. Anyway! Something magic arrived in my poor old garden that is fab.
I thought it might have been something I planted ages ago but no! It’s like a Cup of Gold vine, only with the tiniest flowers ever. And they are scented, too. I’m thinking that it’s a very old fashioned vine from ages ago — maybe even the 30’s — my place dates from that era.
Anyway, I’ll garden a little and then think up a reply to all the things Dak has said. I have my own take on what happened to cause me to be underemployed and it is so non-pretty you won’t even believe it.
I’m going to write a novel about it actually. Soon. Maybe at next year’s Nanowrimo. That pace works for me.
I’ll try and take a picture of that charming little vine. When I was working I always frequented stores to buy seeds and plants and bulbs. Now that I’m not? I’ll take cuttings! hahahahah!
My gen really got fucked over by the corporation. I will be telling that tale.

your poor old garden will be glad to see you.
hahahaha! spent day watching movies and looking at garden books trying to find that vine to no avail. I love it when things appear or self-sow.
I love it too. There’s a mulberry tree growing in my flower bed, and a date palm behind the grape vine, and another one near a desert sage bush….
maybe that vine is a magic vine redux…your poor old garden is the only poor old garden in the world where it grows….
hope you enjoyed your movie-garden book mystery tour.
Mulberries! just the best, ever. An artist friend has a tree so I have tasted them. That is one of the first trees I’d plant. Yum! So fab. They were huge like gigantic blackberries — reddish purple. There is your cobbler!
Never tasted a mulberry, and grew up around mulberry trees. maybe they were the berry-less variety. 🙂
right now one tree is full of figs…..many, many figs…..
glad you are doing nanowrimo again. !!!!
