I've been missing, have you found me?
What can I say but, Whewwwwwww, I'm tired!!!! It has been a long hot summer thus far. I went on vacation and straight to 3 classes this summer in seminary, plus written another book "When Will Eve Be Forgiven?" which one agent in New York declined to represent and one agent in Texas still reviewing a manuscript. My garden has put out a MISSING PERSON REPORT.
I had such high hopes this year for my garden and I started out the same as each spring with a flurry and flourish and now I am in the wimper stage.
I have to ask you my dear cherished fellow gardeners, where in the world did the optimistic, southern belle D2D who just wanted to sip sweet tea amonst her lovely blooms go? Have you seen her because I can't find her here.
I can tell you that she was last spotted lugging in her luggage and books the 3rd week of June marveling in the evening sun at her first successful sunflower bloom nodding its sunny face at her as she passed it in exhaustion. A slight smile passed between them and promises of a more appropriate introduction for tomorrow. That was before listening to the answering machine!!
The old people call these days the "dog days of summer." My dogs (tired feet and mind) agree. But, my neglected garden did not give up on me and there are those ever tough drought tolerant blooms that greet me in the humid evenings (when I am home)and remind me that there is still life left in the old girl.
I will be greeted by my plants as the prodigal son returning. The roses will burst into their final flourish and I will tidy up preparing for the fall flurry of vibrant color after the summer and seminary has taken its toll. I was not lost, just missing. I can never be too far in mind and spirit from the garden. I was always there.

It is so good to hear from you, D2D. it sounds as though you have had a tremendously busy summer so far.
Welcome back home D2D
I was wondering where you had gotten off to.
Well hey there D2D!! Welcome back. Take them ole dogs and just place them back out in that garden and rest a while. Don't forget the sweet tea. You been missed women, glad your back!
Oh it's soooo good to have you back with us again!! You've definately been missed I can assure you. Gosh you seem to have been run off your feet this summer!! Good luck with finding a publisher for your book. I would love to read some extracts from it if that's possible.
