|My ABC Wednesday theme: The Mama and Her Authentic|
Green Thumbs. . .and Fingers
One reason is that at the time I snapped the camera, it was raining cats and dogs. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I was indeed standing in the rain and grinning ear to ear. Rain, as I've said over and over, is scarce in our part of the world.
Prepping camote (yam) stems for her vegetable garden was another reason the Mama was gleeful. The previous day, the Husband and I bought her four bunches of camote leaves at the farmers' market. She had been snipping away for about half an hour before the first raindrops plopped on her colorful clothes.
While I was dancing in the rain, the Mama was dancing inside the shed. Not physically doing the cha cha, but mentally. Just look at the sparkle in her eyes and the smile on her lips. Instead of cooped up in the house, the Mama was sitting snug and dry in the shed, stripping off camote leaves from their stems, while the rain drummed a cool beat on the metal shed.
That was last Thursday. Yesterday (Tuesday), the Mama had another happy day when she planted the camote stems into the ground.
