Ground is dry, dry and dry.
No dew this morning, and no dew yesterday. A person has to feel
sorry for his plants, he has to surrender himself to contemplative
edging and even slower watering. As well it is almost Strawberry
time because nights are cooler.
I imagine older Strawberry plants
know what is in store for them when the next good rain comes. They
will try not to look gnarled and woody, they will remind me of their glory
days and reach for my heart in search of one more season.
