So here it is waiting to be settled into a mix of coco fiber and organic potting soil. This was originally one piece, with lively looking potential shoots. Shouldn't be too hard to remember when I planted it, so I didn't make any notes, other than this one.
And I'm not sure if I should have waited till the break scabbed over, but oh well.
Then this afternoon, the local library made an event of the eclipse, and we had a traffic jam. Seemed as if everyone outside of walking distance was trying to get there. They distributed glasses, but I was too late to snag a pair. Didn't matter. The crowd was friendly and people lent, so I still got a couple of glimpses.
Definitely good to get into a crowd for this, very cheerful happy people. The chess players weren't deterred from their giant game.
We're out of the main path, but it got as dark as twilight, and much cooler. Interestingly, the people who had been in party mood all afternoon, fell silent at 2.48, our totality. Birds, too.
Odd how reassuring it was when the sun came back, even though nowadays we know it will, most likely.
