2016 in a few lines:
exercise changed everything, forever (12wbt - bloody hard work for a 45 year old, but invaluable)
met good people (sewing class (jude!), artists i admire, werk peeps, a new tree guy)
grew a pretty awesome veg patch (flanders poppies (swoon), mostly self-seeded). learned that gardening, for me, is about carefully curating the weeds.
books of the year:
get some work in a garden nursery; a year all about plants is my wish. happy end-of-2016 to all
