Spring planting

On the way to the plant store Running through my head Is a mixture of hopeful ambition – And dread Each springtime I plant Each summer I preen Each autumn I rant My thumbs are not green Although I do wish My garden would thrive I’d be happy if Some plants do survive


I *love* geology. The idea of going to a volcanic island with glaciers, geysers, waterfalls, and hot springs right atop the mid Atlantic Ridge is just my kind of vacation. Iceland did not disappoint! We spent one day recovering from the overnight flight, one day driving the Golden Triangle, another day exploring Rejkavik….Rekjavik…. Reykjavik…. (hmmm…did I spell that correctly? So many consonants in Icelandic words!), one day driving the south coast until just before Vik, and went to the Blue Lagoon the final morning before flying home.

In the World of Wonder, Iceland is a wonderful place.  🙂
