and made ready for fried potatoes for lunch, and the rest for drying,
the old coffee grinder is getting a cleanout and blending coffee scents with the ramps,
a chair seat is cleaned and drying in the sun before getting a new cover,
sun-dried linens are folded to be put away,
while a ragged quilt just in from the clothesline awaits a makeover,
and tiny violets add their sweetness to the perfume of redbuds, lilacs, cherry and apple blossoms.
In the kitchen, sassafras roots are scrubbed and ready to brew into tea,
It's just one of those smell-good, feel-good days.
