If Ever I Leave You—Monday, June 6, 2016

To take from William Butler Yeats: The Lake Isle of Innisfree–” I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree, and a small cabin I build there of clay and wattles made; nine bean rows will I have there, a hive for the honey bee, and live alone in the bee-loud glade”.

Close-of-the-dayIf ever I leave You—You will find me here. Somewhere ‘out here’ where you can hear the dark descending upon the land.

Clouds-2The busy day full of humming bees, sky of blue, and puffy white clouds, the temperature hot and the air full of the fragrances of all growing things.

Dry-Rows(How we let ourselves know that the water didn’t make it to the end of the row.)

Storm-of-Kebler-PassStanding on the ditchbank Terry and I watched a huge lighting storm flashing over Kebler Pass between Crawford and Crested Butte.


If ever I leave you…please stand still…listening… for I will be here.  On this farm where the land, the sky, and air speak to me.

From my world to your heart.

  2. I’ve done it! They aren’t meant for this climate, so we will see. I read they need 6 hours of sun, and to be planted ‘eye down’ and don’t expect much for a good while 🙂 I put old kebab stakes where I planted them out front, as that was meant to be all flowers but I’ve gotten behind. So – natural Irish dirt, let’s see what happens! And in big pots, and in one of my raised beds with really good soil. I’ll be impatient!
