In the Window
The seemingly endless lack of sunshine in the northwest causes me to spend quite a bit of time indoors, even in June. Having an indoor life in the months that I consider to be summer makes me pine for the kind of days where I can walk, coffee in hand, through the gardens in the early morning without rain protection or a parka... days when I can sit in the sun on my greyish-blue mohair blanket and stitch, getting up only to re-position my blanket as the sun moves.
Instead, when I raise my head from my work, I spend a lot of time looking out the window, studying the weather and hoping summer decides to visit for longer than a weekend. Even some of my plant starts needed to be moved inside due to cold temperature and too much moisture. If I ever want my cucumber seeds to grow, they need a much warmer beginning. It seems that I, too, am in need of that same warmth to keep me flourishing.
