Random (but not really)

Tomorrow is the first of May.

There is no need for temperatures to be this cold. Freeze warnings that cause me to have to cover my plants are simply unacceptable. Please do something about this, ASAP.

Really Good Stuff

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter. YUM! Best on whole wheat toast or toasted English muffins.

Rhododendrons and More

Got some gardening in this morning, including giving the front and side areas a good watering.

Which is why it’s pouring down rain right now.

Regardless, I got some more flower pr0n. I can’t seem to get a good picture of the white bleeding heart, and several other pictures turned out spectacularly crappy, but I got a couple of nice pictures. I particularly like the purple gem rhododendron, which actually looks rather crappy as a whole plant right now, but the flowers are beautiful–a really gorgeous shade of purple that would be overwhelming anywhere but on a plant.

I’m still stunned by how good everything looks right now, and how many plants are budding or getting ready to flower. It looks like I’m going to have day lilies blooming in early May, which is almost unbelievable. But I’ll enjoy them anyway!

I LOVE Surprises!

And I got a good one today… Potato Flour from Anne!

Now I can try Jim’s pizza crust recipe and see if it compares to the one I’ve been using. Hopefully next weekend. (Michael’s in Canton OH today, and then tomorrow we’ll be in MD for the viewing.) I’ll try to remember to take pictures–and hope everything turns out well!

But really, the best part was seeing an unexpected package. That truly made my day!

Ew! Plant Sex!

Came home today to find the remains of a plant orgy all over the front yard. There’s been pollen all over the car every morning for the past week.

pollen everywhere!

But you know what? These are things I can most definitely live with.

Also, two new flower pr0n pictures. The camera ate the bleeding heart pictures, and it was getting to dark to get a good picture of anything else, but you can see how the front garden is progressing.

And that’s very well. I’ve already got buds on the columbine and one of the daylilies. The lilac is going to start blooming any time now, the bluebell I planted last fall is blooming, and the lily of the valley is budding. (I adore the flowers on the lily of the valley. They’re so white and delicate they look like porcelain to me.)

Enemies? You? No! How Could It Be?

I’ve been a bit ranty recently, so this is to make up for it.
