All things come to an end


I started this post yesterday, full of ruminations on the school year and my experiences working in Emma's classroom. Yesterday was my last day in her class, as George is now done with both preschools and my time is no longer my own. I posted the picture above to show the lovely gift her teacher made me. Such a thoughtful, homemade present, I really appreciated it.

When he handed it to me, he asked if I have a green thumb. I told him it was more grey with a tinge of green, but that I would do my best. I took it home and found a nice partly shady area for it to live, watered it, and took it's picture.

Good thing I did, because that home I found for it? Was in the unfenced part of our yard. Have I mentioned that we have several families of deer that travel through and sleep in our field? Did you know they love fresh flowers for dessert? Yeah, I actually knew that, but failed to remember it. So now, I have a planter of nice greens and some dirt. I think I'll find it a new home and hope for regrowth.

Here's hoping my brain starts working again now that I can catch up on some sleep!

Ha! Good thing you took a picture before the deer got to it!

I think if you still have green leaves and keep watering, you will get new flowers.
