When it comes to gardening, I have big dreams and endless perseverance. I have a goal to grow my own salad and my own salsa. A couple of years ago, I tried my hand at growing romaine lettuce and took this photo just before my first harvest.


Watching the lettuce evolve and grow — each leaf expanding into an ever-thickening cluster — was fantastic. I imagined faeries taking up residence, coming out at night to dance under the gentle glow of my garden’s solar lights, sleeping during the hottest parts of the day — enveloped — safe and secret in the cool green center of the romaine.

What does “enveloped” mean to you? It could be your post-bath toddler wrapped burrito-style in a huge fuzzy towel. How about the ever-present fog that meanders through your city? Is it the well-loved hammock you lie in devouring novels as if they were candy? Maybe it’s your favorite fluffy comforter, edges worn from love and use?

So looking forward to seeing your interpretations of “enveloped.” Have fun with the challenge!

    1. Love the chicken story. I laughed aloud when I got to this part:

      We would like this chick to write an essay and he clearly wants no part of it.

      The grim look on the chicken’s face is priceless!
