It can't take everything away from me. I won't let it.
I (along with millions of others) have lost freedoms and/or livelihoods to COVID. Many have lost businesses or jobs. Many are depending on food banks for food. Others (right now that includes me, a senior, with rates climbing where I live) don't feel comfortable going into stores except for the necessities. And, maybe soon, not even that. The UK strain is in our state already.
But Rona, or COVID or whatever you want to call "it", can't take gardening away from my spouse and I. The other day we sent our renewal in for our one "in ground" plot and the one raised bed I use, due to my bad back.

This year, we aren't as adventurous as in past years. One herb I am going to try to grow is Zaatar marjoram, an ingredient for a Middle Eastern herb mixture called za'atar. I already have the other ingredients, thyme and oregano, growing in our home herb bed.
We are also going to try to grow spring-planted garlic, something you apparently can do with softneck garlic with a degree of success.
I'm splurging on some fancy zinnia and cosmos seeds.
Today is another day of snow flurries and white sky gloom where I live. It's so nice to dream.
No, Rona, you can't take that away from me.
What can't Rona take away from you?
