Thursday dawned bright and clear and rather cool -- a perfect day to be outside! Shelia, my friend since 7th grade, was in town and offered to come over and pull weeds. Shelia helped me with some of my earliest garden projects forty years ago -- and this felt like old times.
But first she had to meet Josie -- who was disguised as a sweet pastel burrito.
Then we spent the morning pulling weeds and doing a bit of pruning while Layla struck picturesque poses.
Could one ask for a better friend . . . or a more perfect day?
