-learning curve

so- what do you do when your ideal orchard is chopped up and flooded into a bog?
you wipe the stress sweat from your upper lip, put diapers on your muddy galoshes before putting them in the truck and give yourself a MAJOR talking to:
"keep it together! keep it together!! do not cry heather. find a new location- NOW!"

a double row of orange trees in a church parking lot that was begging for a shoot full of blue eyes.
never mind the thin film of silky mud or red ants the size of freaking hamsters.
we worked it out.
and now- i'll be on the floor of my closet in the fetal position doing self affirmations and thinking happy thoughts:
"unicorns, chubby chipmunks, pink clouds, peanut butter m&m's, andy sandberg, scarves"............

gigantic ants are realllly creepy. Not as bad as creepy flying things though, they always aim for the eyes!
