making sacrifices for art
my husband and i have been coaxing along a little patch of native wild blue flag irises on either side of our dock. each fall we break open all the seed pods and encourage them to find a fertile place to take root. what started as a few stray plants is now a modest but vigorous patch on either side of the boardwalk. it’s been slow and patient work. the kind of work that grows almost geologically over years. so when my husband saw that i had snipped these two stems today for STILL, he was…well . . . let’s say he took the side of nature over art.
