And, as we have looked at our garden, we realize the seasons will indeed change while we are gone. So we have been doing lots of pruning and tossing there. It's a bit sad to throw away annuals that are still prospering, but it seems the right thing to do. I guess we are already adding to life's lessons.
And, we already have so many people we are obliged to - who have agreed to take care of our house and garden while we are gone. Thank you!
