I just planted out the frostweed I started from seed, plus the crinums, and spider lilies from southernbulbs.com. So much going in for summer/fall, but we’re having a definite lag now that spring bulbs are done. I need to research what can bridge that gap next year.
Oh, and the blackberries I planted in January are already blooming. Ridiculous.
"Excuse me, that's my familiar."
"You're quite mistaken. Triffle's been with me forever."
"Nice try, I know my Lunabean anywhere!"
The silvery vixen coughed lightly between them.
"I confess; I have been Familiar-ing for you both this whole time."
The wizards stared at her, mouths agape.
"There's a shortage of Familiars requiring us to multi-bond," she explained.
"What're you two doing with my Star-Nyte?"
"...A preposterous shortage."
COVID-19 & emotional health +
I found this helpful and oddly comforting. maybe others will, too
Can anyone tell me what this plant is that has cropped up in my Central Texas yard? Part shade and clay soil watered enough to keep saint augustine alive. The way it is all along an animal path makes me think it has burrs that cling to fur and I will want to get rid of it, but I prefer not to do that without knowing what it is first.
covid-19, Olympics, +
"The Tokyo 2020 Olympics is to be postponed until next year due to the coronavirus pandemic."
physical health, brief COVID mention
before automatically assuming that you have COVID-19 and thus must be dying, perhaps it is wise to check the pollen count and remember that when it is high, the tubes in your ears swell shut.
(took an antihistimine an hour ago and BOY do my ears feel a lot better right about now...as well as my sinuses and basically everything else.)
My order from southernbulbs.com arrived tonight, so there was a frantic planting before sundown. They’re having a 10 for $10 sale on bulbs in the green and I got 20 daffodils and 20 snowdrops that needed planted ASAP after arrival. I also got crinums and spider lilies, but those are normal bulbs that can wait a few days before planting. #gardening #florespondence
