A Ritual of Remembering
Beautiful and visceral. I felt like I was there doing 'the watering' with you... a sign of fine writing. As the grass here in Australia is dry and straw-like, already in July, I sense the summer ahead here will be quite similar.
Loved reading this, thank you for taking us with you! could almost feel the summer breeze, smell of the roses and hear the wood pecker. “The watering” is such a beautiful ritual I remember from my childhood on a farm on the foothills of the Bavarian Alps. Although I found it tedious as a child to water the vegetable garden, I now truly enjoy my evening ritual m, watering my tiny city garden on my balcony seeing my vegetables grow and flowers bloom 🌺
