Name Change

I originally named this blog "A Garden of Spice" after a line from my favorite poet, Tennyson.  I thought of our family, or at least the kids, as the garden.  Maybe Nick and I are gardeners.  I'll leave that up to interpretation.

Since then, it has bothered me that I don't read much poetry, and I can't remember what that particular poem is about.  But I spend a lot of time with my sweet jazz vocalists.  So I've been on a subtle prowl to find the right jazz lyric for a new title.

I've found it.  And I think our exodus from San Francisco and our entre-dus to the northwest is a perfect time to turn this Garden of Spice into a Garden in the Rain.  I like the double meaning, too, when you think of the word garden as a verb.  Even when life is raining, keep on gardening.  "And then the sun came out again... and sent us happily on our way."
No worries, the blog will still publish at the same address,

Love, love your new title. It's just perfect and it happens to be one of my most favorite Diana Krall song. Ever.
