I love curtains. Until yesterday, I didn’t have any; only a stylish shower curtain covered one window. That’s because–while curtains more than anything say ‘a grown-up lives here’–I am intimidated by all the parts, pieces and work that goes into each ‘window treatment.’ Also I think the name ‘window treatment’ is dumb.
On the other side of the be-curtained window is this Japanese cabbage flower, a gift from my neighbors when they made a small amount of noise painting their house for New Years. I planted it in a square foot of ground where nothing will grow and surprise! It loves it.
