1. Destined for someone else's shade garden, Hostas, Astilbe, Bleeding Hearts, Solomon's Seal and Phlox temporarily fill my patio until she takes them home. The combination is so beautiful; I'll pretend it's my shade garden for a little while.
2. She's sitting up in bed, surrounded in white, holding a red Popsicle. My brave girl. She closes her eyes and slips back into sleep, Popsicle still upright in her hand.
3. I enjoy playing nursemaid.
