As the earth warms, and the sun rises earlier, my heart turns to the pleasures of planting. I took tools to the garden today. Leggy sage, stems still captured in crusty snow is now trimmed neatly. Nearby thyme's stems with tiny green leaves needed only a small neatening up. Pots are sorted, ready to fill with soil and seeds. Daffodil, tulip and hyacinth bulbs never made it to earth this fall, so are now planted, with the hope that they have enough energy to bloom this sring.
Starting this blog, and website is a step towards nurturing the growth of the community. Strong connections are made when we look back together at the unique and interesting history of the town of Entiat, WA and the beautiful Entiat valley. My wish is to share the stories of the people who live here now and, in the past, and to capture the character and many dimensions of the valley in words and images. I have lived here since 1984 and have much to learn and many places to explore for the first time. I welcome collaboration and invite readers to comment, and to share with me the great privilege of honoring the valley and the good people who inhabit it.
We will soon be hosting an All Members meeting of the Entiat Community Historical Society at the Entiat Grange Hall Tuesday, March 14 at 10:00 AM .
