ON THE BACK BURNER

July 6

Finally. It is summer in Port  Townsend,but with an ocean breeze. I know that this will be strange to some,  but in the yard, under a green leafy tree is a molded golden elephant. Her name is Ella-Fay. My daughter in law, saw her on the roof of a an abandoned two story building. She followed the notice posted on the door and asked if she could have the elephant.Not only could she have the elephant, but the real estate agent said that he would get it down for her She rented a trailer and now they have a golden elephant in the yard. To get back to me, I have decided to devote my summer to the elephant. I am going to do some plantings around her base, bring some color to her  life. I have visions of India, where the elephants wear garlands of flowers.. She’s too tall for  me to do that, but I thought some of the plantings of colorful  flowers would be nice. She is looking happier already.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
