Soon Come

I like this Jamaican phrase - soon come. Its suggests that you need to add a little detachment to the wait. Its a good phrase for what's going on in the garden right now. On my visit today I found a lot of things poised to go into bloom, like these peony buds in the picture.

The detachment aspect is particularly meaningful for me as I only go up to Mamoroneck once a week at best. Last year I missed a week and completely missed the Peonies. The year before the timing was perfect, I brought back a perfect bunch back to the city that perfumed the apartment and looked sensuosly beautiful. I go back next Thursday. I'm detached, but I can't wait.
