Karl, a King, and my return.

Dear Sunaina,

I’ve been procrastinating writing because so much is up in the air as far as moving to Maui permanently, but I’ve been in the clouds and every time I open the door it seems to be raining, so it’s time to get started writing! It’s been a pretty nice couple of weeks here, had a guest, inadvertently helped a Pueo have a successful hunting trip, garden beds are flowering, all kinds of stuff is going on!

What better way to spend the early spring than enjoying nature au naturale? May 1st is often considered the first safe day to plant frost-intolerant varieties of plants, and Mother’s day is coming up, so there will be lots of gardening going on around the northern hemisphere.
