One of my favorite things about living in the town where I grew up is that my little girl goes to the same elementary school that I went to. Of course, when I was a kid they didn't have public kindergarten, and they have added a whole new wing for the middle school since then, but still. It's pretty cool that the same little village school that I attended is her first experience of school too.
Today was a blustery day.
Another exciting thing that happened today is that my first poppy bloomed.
This house is the first place I've lived as an adult for more than one year. It has been such a joyful experience to be able to plant and nurture gardens that come back year after year. I didn't actually plant these poppies. There were very few perennials thriving here when I came, and I've planted a bunch of things, but I am grateful for these gracious papery blooms while they last, even though they're in the most inconvenient of spots.
