As spring pushes into summer, we are all restless. Gracie has spent much of her time in our backyard. We have cat-proofing on the fences designed to keep her in the yard. Threats roam the neighborhood, both four-footed and four-wheeled, but the back yard is safe. We’ve redesigned the grape arbor this year to give the grapes more room to run above and to provide shade to the cats and dogs below. Gracie approves.
The crickets are droning, the sun is setting, and there is peace here in the garden. For me, anyway. I’m not sure that Gracie has peace on her mind.
