Things are going well on Broad Street in Hartford. So far I’ve gotten everything I’ve asked for at work, including the chance to do a weekly gardening segment (beginning in a few weeks). I haven’t done that since “Geoff’s Garden” back in the 90s.
Seriously? The 90s?
Yesterday afternoon I drove to Robert Treat Farm in Milford. They’ll be helping with some of the planning and materials. Nice people. Green thumbs. Beautiful plants.
Let’s face it, the weather has sucked this spring! We’re in the midst of a depressing rainy spell that isn’t over yet. That was on my mind when I drove up.
The farm was nice, but there was a bonus I hadn’t expected. I walked into one of their greenhouses and was immediately hit by warm, slightly humid air. I was shielded from the rain, but feeling the season. Nirvana!
If I could bottle that feel I’d be rich before the weekend. Seeing the colors and feeling the warmth was invigorating. I think we all need some invigorating right now.
Before long I had to leave and drive to work. As soon as I got in the car I had to turn on the wipers. Buzzkill.
