Seattle is notoriously spunky on May Day. I hope today is full of spirited marches and activities without violence or looting or destruction. As for me, I am going to do some writing and gardening. So far I have planted four dwarf trees, strawberries, chives, beets, radishes, peas, Brussels sprouts, arugula, corn, sunflowers (a wide variety), zinnias, cornflowers, dahlias, and scabiosas. I figure SOMETHING will bloom or grow. This is only my second year attempting to garden. Last year I started a garden in pots but then had to move and lost it all. Pity. That is okay. If at first you don’t succeed, try…try again. I don’t mind the pitfalls. I am excited to see what will come up! So, I will avoid the city this May Day and take care of my garden.
To a great May Day!
