|Possibly a portal to the underworld.|
|The garden as of this morning.|
We've got these crazy new hills spouting up in the yard. I'm not sure what kind of critter is making them, but they remind me of ancient burial mounds. But with a hole in the middle. Once they're built up, they're hardening (more proof of the clay make-up of the soil here) into small towers about 6" high. I'm fascinated by them, and equally fascinated by the fact that the dogs don't seem to even notice them. Not even to pee on!
So here's what the garden looks like, as of this morning. Almost all of the onion unfurled last night, in some synchronized movement I missed. The cabbages and broccoli are all developing a second set of leaves, and looking quite robust.
For the past week, each night has been spent at Eastern Illinois University's Tarble Arts Center, in tech rehearsals and then weekend performances of "Driving Miss Daisy". I'm not in the show, but am running the lights. The show is put on by the Charleston Community Theater, one of two different community theater groups in town. This is the second time I've done lights for them, the last time was back in January, when "Tuesdays With Morrie" played. It is so much fun to work with these folks. If you're in Charleston, come see the show this Thursday, Friday or Saturday!
