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.

Still More Gardening

As much as I go on about it you'd think I actually liked doing it wouldn't you?

Nope--don't much care for it. I only do it because I like flowers. Which is why I plant perennials: if I'm going to all the trouble of throwing something in the dirt on purpose it had damned well better KEEP making pretty flowers. Fighting the winter and critters of The Hinterlands makes it a challenge.

So I was particularly pleased to discover my "Enterprise" hybrid iris came back after all:





I'm also happy the peonies are finally popping:
(That dangly one on the far right is going in a bud glass on my desk tomorrow morning.)



They're nice close-up too...




Finally I give you the difference one month can make.

Plant Delights nursery in NC has the motto, "Friends don't let friends plant annuals." Words to live by.

I like gardening I come to see the plants as my children. It pains me when someone cuts doon a 60 year-old tree on a whim.
