Blogsam and Jetsam

Flotsam is the part of the wreckage of a ship or its cargo found floating on the water. Jetsam is cargo or parts of a ship that are deliberately thrown overboard, as to lighten the ship in an emergency, and that subsequently either sinks or is washed ashore. This is my personal blog version of the above. Loot freely.

I'm annoyed that the world is going crazier faster than it used to be. But it's interesting to watch.

Spring


It's hard to kill

A daffodil.




I made that up just now (does it sound like Ogden Nash?) but it really is true: even the bed right by the road where the salt gets all over is starting to bud.


The sheltered bed is still in full bloom but getting older:

My grape hyacinths always take a while to get there but last forever once they do.


Birthday tulip buds...
...and tiny poppy shoots.

I can't believe how fast it goes from snow to Spring flowers in your neck of the woods.

Happy Spring!

Mel: good; the other choice was Ted Knight as the guy christening his yacht in _Caddyshack_!

Diane: Me neither--the snow melts and the very next day the snowdrops are blooming...and the crocus ALWAYS get snowed over at least once.

Mitzi: Thanks--the bulbs and the dirt do the hard part!
