She finds peace in her garden. She has made a plan, a meticulous plan, plotted where she will plant each plant or flower. It has given her motivation, this chore, and a feeling of control over this small piece of her life when so much else is beyond her. Beyond control, beyond understanding, beyond changing. In this garden she will plant precisely her peppers, parsley, pansies and pole beans. The deer won't get to them this year, this year she has a fence. She knows it will be hard work but satisfying. Control in comforting, briefly.
