Won't you be my neighbor?
We weren't part of the conversation, but heard the exchange. One neighbor talking to another, over a white picket fence.
"Would you like a red dahlia?" the woman with the black dog on a leash asked over the white picket fence.
"Yes," the woman on the other side of the picket fence said.
"I'll pot it and bring it over in the morning," the woman with the dog said.
So many people are looking for ways to get outside, but stay close to home. There are flower gardens and vegetable gardens sprouting up, one block after another.
Gardening is a hobby I tussle with. I like the idea of having one, but the work involved keeps me from digging in. After I heard the conversation, I wanted a red dahlia. So I made one. And because I'm partial to them, I modeled my collage after a botanical print.
Are you a gardener? Got dahlias?
