I can’t say love enough times for this, Hank. Simon’s resting place gathered tears in my eyes.
Your azaleas are astounding. Ours faded two months ago and I miss them so much.
I am really getting interested in succulents this year so I certainly didn’t mind that you include some that weren’t associated with a fence in any way!
I am a lover of wind chimes and have several, and although I do not have a ceramic garden cat (but have 2 breathing cats), I do have a frog and a turtle, not to mention, 2 ceramic ducks and 2 Chinese guardian lions near our front door.
Your piece was charming. Thank you for sharing with us. Oh, and I must mention the poem — lovely!!
