Toe Mirror

I guess this is so you can check your footwear before leaving the front garden. Probably wise – who among us hasn’t found themselves walking down the street in their fluffy slippers?

Summer Feet

When I was little, not little-little, but tomboy little, 8 or 9 maybe, around this time every year, as soon as it started to get warm enough outside, I’d start going around barefoot. Little by little, short bursts to get the mail, into the backyard, (carefully avoiding the deep bed of pricklers fallen around the holly trees), across the driveway, ours smooth black asphalt, working up to our dear neighbors ohmygod  EXPOSED AGGREGATE the ultimate bane of bare feet. The first liberation of winter white little toes, carpet-soft heretofore beslippered paws that had been swaddled in socks and winter boots for months. I called it “getting my summer feet”, my 8-year-old notion that if I started getting the bottom of my feet prepped in April, by the time June rolled around I’d have leathery Indian feet, ready to go in the woods, play kickball on pavement, traverse hot sands, climb seaside and river deep rocks, go clamming, and repel splinters and blackberry thorns with ease. Today is the first day it’s been warm enough to go outside barefoot and as I stepped outside to water our newly transplanted bulbs and yet to sprout seedlings, I thought: Ouch. It’s been YEARS since I’ve let my feet loose from their high-heeled-and-pedicured-city-street-subway-stair-walking duties. YEARS since I had summer feet. And then I thought: YES! The countrification of these feet begin today! Summer feet: 20 years later, now with hot pink nail polish.

Sydney, Australia

17 Feb

“Sydney’s suburbs have amazing birds (Cockatoos, Kookaburras, Rainbow Lorikeets …) and other nature’s wonderful creatures (such as Possums) that like to visit gardens, sing or weave nests – some simply to sit on top of the clothesline and watch you hang out the washing, or eat Mimosa pods after the flowers have disappeared, making a pain of a mess you need a heavy rake to move. So in accommodating that, in more than twenty years my back yard had blossomed with all sorts of shrubs, bushes and trees – but, the green lawn slowly died. Decided to prune the shrubbery, let a bit more sunshine to ground zero and – plant a new lawn. My excited foot watches from the bedroom window the new shoots of greenery, which I am certain will re–direct the neighbourhood cats to relieve themselves in the soil under the shrubs and not where lawn once was and is again. Ah, the life that happens in a back yard.”

Katoomba, New South Wales, Australia

26 Jan

After a day in the garden, I sat down on the porch to have a wine and when I holding the camera, planning on taking a photo of my work, I accidentally snapped my feet while I was relaxing.  Not quite the picture I wanted to take.
Taken at Katoomba, NSW, Australia.

Denver, Colorado

If you would have told me 5 years ago, that I would be growing food.  And not just food, but vegetables I would have laughed.  Just ask my family.  When I was a little girl, I was the most picky stubbornly annoying eater.  I detested cheesecake because the idea of cheese and sugar was repulsive (although I never tried it until the age of 19).  I was shamefully embarrassed that day.

Bringing home these baskets of fresh vegetables that my family has watched from seed to completion is really changing the way I see food.  As time progresses I am beginning to realize that just as healthy food nourishes my body,  growing it, nourishes my soul.

When the family is in the garden, life pauses for a moment. Pretty soon you start to see the subtle things. Like watching a little bitty bush bean become something before your eyes. Or how it feels to pull a onion by its head, and take in the rich aroma.  To step back in wonder, and give thanks.  Instead of seeing it as defeat of why the celery is turning yellow, to instead turn and face the challenge of life with confidence.  To research.  To find out.

Very inspiring post!

Northern Arizona

“I live at the Center of the Universe, the Hopi Nation in northern Arizona. We are about 5,500 feet high and have been blessed to have our usual temperate summer – high 90’s, desert cools of fifties and sixties. We are now in the Monsoon season with cooling rains almost every evening. You can see corn leaves in my backyard garden of white, yellow, and sweet corn, melons, squash, and tomatoes. The desert blooms. “

“This photo was taken of my feet relaxing beside my lovely green garden in Gananoque, ON after a long hard day of work, Friday June 29th. A sunny evening, a nice cold beer, and a relaxing view of my garden while I relaxed my aching feet! Then back to work the next day for the long weekend – so these little moments of pleasure really count =) “
