On Sunday, Douglas did a 62-mile run. I was exhausted just writing this post; I had to take several breaks. My excuse is that I have been sick, but I still feel like a big wimp. I am proud of him, though, despite questioning why he does what he does. I do appreciate that he never gives up when there is something that he wants. Here he is with Junior after the race.
Douglas will never give up on a race and I swear not to give up on my garden this year. After three years of living in the Cape of Dreams and taking care of the yard, I finally feel that things are starting to come together the way that I want them. I was fortunate when I moved in that the house was surrounded by wide flower garden bordered with Belgian blocks. There were some bushes and flowers in the garden and yard, but not nearly as many as I wanted. The gardens looked rather sparse and the side and back of the yard was a tangle of overgrown bushes. I did not have the money to do what I wanted in the beginning, but I have been slowly filling things in with plants that I love.
