the transformation

In honor of spring's arrival, but mostly because she is addicted to buying plants, Suzie spent her last day on Whidbey preparing this flower bed. Weeding, transplanting, and spreading manure, she has turned this bed from something that look liked Medusa's hair into something beautiful. I wish I had a "before" picture. But you'll just have to imagine that box completely filled with weeds, where a few random bulbs were trying their hardest to eek out a living. And somehow in all that mess, the deer still found the tulip leaves and feasted solely on them. The unpredictability of nature leaves me with no words. hmmm.
