“Most people don't realize how important librarians are. I ran across a book recently which suggested that the peace and prosperity of a culture was solely related to how many librarians it contained. Possibly a slight overstatement. But a culture that doesn't value its librarians doesn't value ideas and without ideas, well, where are we?”

Nasturtiums and Herbs on the Garden Wall

Last year I started growing Nasturtiums on the back wall in the garden. I love Nasturtiums because they remind me of San Francisco where we lived when I was little for a few years. They grow wild in Golden Gate Park. My Mom and I took a walk in Golden Gate Park more than a decade ago when I was on a trip out west with my parents before buying my house on Jackson Street in Wilmington. We picked seeds from the flowers. This years the plants have bloomed beautifully on the wall. I've got pots of herbs growing up on top of the wall and the Nasturtiums are dwarfing them! Cleo the affectionate barn kitty) isn't able to knock the pot of catnip off the edge anymore.
