In the garden: Mud season in June
Lilac blossoms landing on my yards of soil. If this were a Japanese woodblock print, we'd have cherry blosssoms, not lilacs, and probably not mud, either.
Zooming out for context:
And if this were a Japanese woodblock print, that would be Mount Fuji reflected upside down in the mud puddle, which would be a vernal pool.
But the one isn't, and the other isn't. Four days of cold and wet have left me cranky!
UPDATE Adding, through a natural association of ideas, that my Sluggo came today. Nothing more disheartening than planting marigolds as a companion plant, and coming out in the morning to find that slugs or snails have carefully chewed off their heads.
