There's a few ritual places I pencil in each year to relax. One of those has been the Holden Arboretum plant sale. Today was the day of the sale. It's spring and even my thumb is green. Before we went to the plant sale, we made a visit to our vet. Our dog Eva had been sick for a couple days and didn't appear to be improving. A short time after our arrival at the vet, we knew there was bad news when the vet came into the room battling tears. Eva had a large cancer growth pushing against her heart and windpipe causing her sudden illness. Sometimes you know there's no long term happy news. This was one of those times. We still went to the plant sale, but it was with heavy hearts.
