sprouts2    I’m still working on getting used to retirement.  Lots of writing going on and I have two writing conferences coming up: Oklahoma Writers’ Federation, Inc. next weekend and then the Ozark Writers’ League mid-May.  The OWL conference will take place in Branson and will be presenting on fantasy writing.  Can’t wait!

But for now, while I prepare for two conferences and working on my latest New Adult novel, I am gardening.  The irises are blooming and sprouts are up in my straw bale vegetable garden.  If you see me at the farmers market later in the summer, you will know it failed.  backyard

It is cool outside this morning so I plan to dig out and rearrange some perennials.  I need to move some daylilies and do you know anyone who wants some wild violets?  They are going in the trash.  They make a great ground cover if you need something “wild” looking.   Maybe you have a bigger lawn than I do, living in the city, and you can have them. But don’t yell at me later when they take over.

I have a few herbs available to use, chives, mint, lemon balm and others on the way.  I shopped at my local Atwoods and picked up some hostas for the shady area of the garden and they look great.  Another perennial that I won’t have to replant next year, if I’m lucky.  hostas

This staying busy thing is easier than I thought.  Take it from a woman who has shown up for work every day for 45 years, it is a little different not going in.  But it is worth it.
