My Garden in June–How Do my Flowers Grow?

I’m leaning into the color yellow in 2012.  The Columbines and the Blue Flax are Volunteers.  The White Nancys and whatever that thing is that will eventually make small purple flowers have survived my brown thumb for a decade.  The Red things, petunias and other yellow flowers came from the greenhouse.  The potted plants dry out in the morning sun and are quite demanding. 

 

I’ve only just planted these just over a week ago.  We’ll see what happens when they have a chance to fill out or turn brown. 

 

Drop by on Fridays for Fiction Friday and Wednesdays for Writerly Wednesday.

Slippery Slopes and the Adventures of a Paperback Novel…

Good Weekend, everyone!

I am pleased to say I am doing well after the incident on the ramp.

My reality can change in a blink. On Wednesday, the wind was blowing and it was cold. It had been raining for a few days and with the Eternal Press Chats behind me and busy work ahead, I dressed the dog and darling husband and I were off to talk to a durable medical equipment guy.

It was blowing and I turned back toward the front door. Hubby coaxed me onward. He took my hand and was urging me down the rain soaked ramp toward the van.

I remember him asking, “What’s going on?” As I began my downward slide, he held tight to my hand and more of my arm in an effort to slow me down.

The resulting injury to my arm and wrist is mending. I used my big toe to work the shift key and finished some Eternal work I had started earlier. With a very cool brace I can use most of the fingers that really count for typing.

Yesterday, I carefully headed down the ramp with my novel and a camera. The adventure led us to a roof top of a parking garage where I posed with a copy of If I Should Die on top of a trash can. Before heading home, we swung by the apartment building my main character, Peyton, lived in and took a photo or two.

Karina Fabian has be busy tuning up my promotional efforts on If I Should Die in a workshop she is running over a Savvy Authors. Next week I will begin a digital marketing workshop. I see my schedule includes Moderating on Wednesday, June 15th at The Writer’s Chatroom.

I’m leaving you lucky readers with a slideshow of photos that feature the adventures of a paperback novel. Enjoy and don’t touch anything sharp.
