Tales of a British expat, transplanted into the lush Tennessee countryside. Lover of old, time-worn, and antique. Tea-drinker, flower-grower, animal-nurturer.

The First Sergeant has spent the last few days, mowing, trimming, pruning, and fixing.
Putting the place 'to rights' after a long Winter's nap takes quite an effort, and will be ongoing for several weekends to come.
My effort consisted of hanging the porch ferns. and planting Geraniums.
I've still got lots of empty pots to fill, and birdhouses to tend......
The Perennials are flowering.
We had a hard frost last night, I'm keeping my fingers crossed they were not harmed.
"Everything is blooming most recklessly;
if it were voices instead of colors,
there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night."
~ Rainer Maria Rilke: Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke
