Portrait of the gardener in a gentle hurry

Here's a characteristic photo of Jean, walking down from the front door on her way to Old Rose event (if you're a Rosarian you know what those are).  

In her hand, a cup of coffee.  

In her backpack, a bouquet to share with the other rose fanciers.  

On her mind (not visible from the photo, but we'll infer): worries about her mom; creative gardening ideas for the front yard, a little oasis that is already a work of art (partially visible from the photo); plans to save an obdurate world by cultivating California natives, and by other green schemes; cats; hubby; books.  Not necessarily in that order, or any order.

Good luck to you, gallant gardener!
