The weather has not been what was forecasted. The forecast was for bright, sunny, beautiful, warm days. Instead, the last few days have been misty, cloudy, very windy, and just generally yucky, to be technical.
So, my attention has turned once again to an inside project I've been working on for months. Making curtains. Which should have only taken a couple of days. But I've drug it out because I have no enthusiasm for it. I want to be outside.
However, today was "The Day". The day Mr. Holleygarden said he would help me hang them - if I finished sewing those dratted curtains. So, I did. And he did. And I had an epiphany.
Stay with me.
My back room is a hodge-podge of colors - red, yellow, green, brown, a touch of pink. So, I decided my curtains needed to have all those colors in them. And I didn't realize until they were hung that they were perfect. Perfect!
Perfect because of all those colors. You see, those windows look out to the back walking garden. The back walking garden that has the colors red, yellow, green, and a bit of pink. Essentially, unconsciously, I brought the outside in. And when the flowers bloom, the entire room is going to come to life. As if I wasn't before, now I'm really anxious for spring to come and the flowers to bloom!

Isn't it funny the many ways our gardens influence us, even when we don't realize it? And now that the curtains are finally finished, I can devote all my time to the garden! Well, weather permitting.
