Spring has just damn sprung. No two ways about it.
It sprung about two weeks ago, but we were all afraid to admit it.
She's too far gone now. If we get
Well, we're in deep doo-doo either way as there is always hell to pay for no winter.
This Almond Verbena has the whole yard smelling like sweet.
SWEET, is more like it.
It's almost nauseating sweet, but I do love it.
Such a nice surprise in my otherwise dog-poop-smelling yard.
Guess who likes to sleep in the hens' basket?
Cricket the Cozy.
I think he's actually stalking sparrows and wrens. They get in there and eat the chikkin food once the chikkins are out for the day.
I think he's actually pretending to stalk sparrows and wrens. He really just likes a good nap in a cozy spot.
Mexican Honeysuckle suggested to me by Pam Penick over at Digging. (Thank you, Pam.)
(That first link will take you over to a Digging post where she talks about this plant.)
I am loving this plant sooooo much.
I have a lot of shade in my yard and this, along with Plumbago, are some of the few plants that really flower well in it.
Plus, it's ORANGE!
Got off me arse and roasted some vegetables.
Best served warm with a fried egg on top.
(Just like a Texan to take a healthy dish and put something fried on it.)
Speaking of healthy.
Remember the days when we thought frozen yogurt was healthy?
HA HA HA HA.
I want those days back.
Time for the clothesline again!
I'm soooooo happy.
I did hang them off and on all "winter," but it's officially time now.
Reading, reading, reading.
Have you read Ready Player One ?
Holy crap, man, sooooo good. (It does have some "language," if you care about such things.)
(Heather, you and Austin would probably love this so much too!)
Last, but not least, I am happy to report that the new Target rug is washable.
Speaking of Huzzah, the Sherwood Forest Faire started this past weekend.
If you like the Texas Renaissance Festival, but are tired of the prices and the crowds, give Sherwood a try. It's wonderfully old-school and half the price. We've all but given up on the big one now that Sherwood is here.
DID YOU WATCH DOWNTON????
OMG it was SOOOOOOO good and beautiful.
Could you just die at the beige/cream cricket match? Whoever designs the sets and costumes must have been in pure Nirvana at that scene.
Like us! weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
How was your weekend? Delicious, I hope!
