Red Echo

May 5, 2007

I somehow got the day of the Circus Contraption show wrong, and thought I was going to spend a nice quiet evening at home last night. Er, no. Out late, crazy carnies singing and performing, an audience full of familiar faces, much drinking. Ah, what terrific fun.

I think I’ll spend this afternoon puttering around the house. There are books to organize, boxes to pack away into storage, and an unlimited number of plants to buy, pot, and arrange on the porch…


  1. Is that a redwood tree outside of your balcony?

  2. Yes, it’s a redwood. Between the house and the tree that corner of the balcony is always in shade, so it seemed perfect for some ferns. I just finished planting another pot with a sword fern and some other PNW-native plants, and put a couple small pots of oat grass out in the sunnier part of the balcony. It feels good to have space to garden again.
