Spring in Central Oregon; the slightest bit of sun sends us into a spectacle of gratitude telling each other “how nice it is today”, as we scrape the ice from the car window or turn up the thermostat to chase the chill from the room watching all that deceptive daylight undulating by the window masquerading as a lazy July afternoon.
True enough, the grass is green and high, dandelions dot the lawn with yellow freckles, the elm aches to deposit those millions of little seed from it’s branches before leafing out for summer and the urge to plant tomatoes is a fever running through the neighborhood gardeners.
Turned so hot so fast that I failed to get my water system turned on, “system” that’s a joke, by our ever rotating group of landscapers and looking for work wino’s.
Anyway, the west lot has gone to dust and with the application of water will turn to mud, which in turn will become a gooey playground for the dogs whose only interest is a fleeing tennis ball.
