It’s called ‘The Web’ because once you’re in it, you are stuck.
– Terry Hall –
I’m going to take some time off – see if I can find a new Happy Place. I know it exists somewhere here in my mind, but I’m not having much luck finding it right now.
So, I’m going to unplug for a while. I hope you will come back to visit my blog when I return!
Before I go, here are the photos I took the last time I was at the cabin. It is quite remarkable what is blooming out there. All 305 homes were destroyed, yet the flowers are cheerfully acting like nothing happened!
A yellow Columbine or Aquilegia.
A pink Rose. It is a hardy bush rose, but I don’t know it is called. I wish I had one in my yard!
A white Shasta Daisy. These grow like weeds at my place.
An orange Daylily. I have these in my yard, but they never look this good!
A white Mallow or Sidalcea. I’m really guessing on whether that is what this is. It has leaves like a cranesbill geranium, but flower buds like a little hollyhock.
An orange Heliopsis helianthoides ‘Asahi’ – commonly called a False Sunflower. I’m guessing that is what this flower is called…
I hope I’ll be able to return to Hidden Valley next year to see what is blooming – but I don’t expect the Siksika Nation will allow us to enter once our buildings have been demolished and removed, and our lease has expired.
Before I go, please tell me if you have ever taken a blog holiday. How long did you leave your blog to fend for itself? Did you find what you were looking for while you were gone?
