They look like big, good, strong hands. Don't they?

(viewed 1043 times)
I used to be embarrassed about my hands because they got older than the rest of me. But now I am proud of my old hands. They spent a lot of time making things--in glaze buckets, working clay, paper, soil and plants, and lately, holding a camera.

Toronto guerilla gardeners liberate a corner of Chinatown

A huge nursery donated thousands of dollars worth of plants to us. That means we have lots of great perennials to plant. The Chinese restaurant around the corner will water it, and a lot of people going by really liked it. It was hot, dirty and fun.

Lupines, eastern North America style

(viewed 736 times)
Once these lupines roamed eastern North America, but now they are rare. They can't grow without fire to split their seeds, and no one wants the savanna to burn anymore. Insurance problems. So it almost disappeared. The butterfly that needs it has gone. But in High Park, where I volunteer, we took the seeds from what was there and grew them, and now we have hillsides of it. I think we can ask the Karner Blue butterfly to come back now. This is one of my favourite flowers.

I belong to groups now. One group plants things, the other rips plants out of the ground. It's all good.
