small accomplishments


there is an undeniable sense of satisfaction that comes from a freshly potted plants.  so much pleasures lies in the task.  a few minutes of quiet business outside and i feel as if i've achieved something for the day.  with a start and finish - a before and after.

there's the tried and true philodendron which has moved from city to suburb with us, out aging the dog.  it's clippings now creep out of glass bottles on our windowsills.  a cactus to add some green to the bathroom; basil (two pots worth, because too much basil doesn't exist) and aloe for good measure; and the favorite- a temperamental fellow who, nearly one year later, i'm still getting to know.  he was on the sale rack and given to me at an even further discounted price with "good luck" wishes....my own little engine that is.
