out my window


daily prompt. go to the nearest window , lookout for a minute and write about it.

My desk is by a door with a window. its over my left shoulder.I work in greenhouses and now do a lot of production planning at my desk.

The maintenance guy just walked by spreading salt on the drive way between my office door and the greenhouses. i look out the door and see the end and side of one greenhouse we call number two. Number two is filled with Anemones Japonica. all starter plants ready for sale across the united states to greenhouses, garden centers and nurseries. the greenhouse roof has two layers of plastic film that is inflated by air between them. this causes a bulging pillow on the side of the roof. Which to me is an insulation saving fuel.At the base of the roof running down the side is the remnant of our last snow piled like frosting on the side walk.

the greenhouse has a vestibule that is screened with a netting to keep out Japanese Beatles. this is so the department of agriculture allows us to send plants to the west coast.

in the distance over the roof of the greenhouse, is a towering Cyprus that has been there for almost a century. the sky surrounding the tree and roof is grey. it could be a depressing day or it could be a silver lining day.

now that i’ve written something its a silver lining day
