I am, as often happens, without title

For my Nano, not just this post.

Basic synopsis: Young man comes back home to Arizona and gets new apartment overlooking cemetery. He is a magick sensitive, which means he can see and sense magic, and that includes ghosts. One ghost doesn't belong to that cemetery, which was closed in the early 90's; but she thinks she died in 2003. Danny has to help her solve her own murder so she can move on.

Very simple, very basic. I just need a title.


So, we planted the flowers, and the garden will look wonderful when it's all blooming. Here's the after shot, from the same angle:



And because that's not a very good shot, here's some bonus pictures, closeups:








We spent the day digging in the dirt and doing house stuff (laundry, etc.), then shopping for Barb's mom and looking around for a new Cornucopia to replace our old one. We got some really pretty new gourds and Indian corn at the grocery store, but a quick stop at both Tuesday morning and Micheal's shows that while it's not even Halloween, it's all Christmas already. (There's almost NOTHING Halloween-related left at either store, and nothing at all for Thanksgiving.) I also put up a few Halloween things, although I have not set up my Spooky Town this year. It just came too fast!

We also spent some time bemoaning the fact that Cold Stone Creamery no longer has really good waffle cones and wondering where we could find an ice cream place that DOES have good cones as well as good ice cream, and pondering whether or not to use my mom's Anniversary gift of a Red Lobster gift certificate for dinner tonight...

I like the way you've incorporated shells into the garden. And I wouldn't worry about the title. I bet it will come to you as you write.

Those are shells my great aunt collected (we still have lots of 'em).

I wish they would! (As you may have noticed, I steal a lot of song titles.)

I think I just want to do up a fancy "book cover" like others on my flist do! *grin*

i like the garden

and i want to read this story right now.

I blow at titles. You do not want my help. The fact that I actually HAVE a title frightens me. probably means i'm doomed.

Thanks! It should look really nice when everything's in bloom. We got a LOT of flowers this year!

Researching that graveyard gave me a lot of ideas... but not a title!

Yep, this is the time of year when we put them OUT!

I also tied up the rouge mesquite that came to live in the front yard, in the hopes that it will grow, too.

I still think it's young enough that it could be transplanted successfully.

I will, as I always do, defer to Barb in these cases, who knows far more about plants than me, but I have to tell you, it's not as "young" as you think -- it's been out there for well over a year, only it was very, very small, and it got chopped off to the ground at least twice before it really took off, leading both of us to speculate that the tap root goes down at LEAST five feet.

It would probably require a professional tree person to transplant it, and that would cost more than the tree itself, very likely. There's nothing wrong with where it is.

I can't think of anything that doesn't sound clichéd or like a Scooby-Doo episode ("The Mystery of the Misplaced Ghost"). I'm sure the real title will come along as you write.

I just hope I don't fall back on song titles, as I so often do.
