'Year by year the complexities of this spinning world grow more bewildering and so each year we need all the more to seek peace and comfort in the joyful simplicities.'
-Woman's Home Companion, 1935
Peonies before they shatter - delicate soapy fragrance, unmistakable.
A new 'Monkey' knit in Blue Moon cotton - scrumptious in vanilla.
Navy beans soaking, dreaming of molasses and brown sugar.
Tomato plants waiting patiently to sink their toes into the soil.
The happy knowledge that my homegrown gourds have been discovered and occupied.
