All the world's a garden, you know, and we are mere flowers within it. Come, I'll show you!

Don't get any funny ideas!

Prior life as a depression era house wife

It seems I may have had a prior life as a depression era housewife. How do I know this?
Because I simply am unable--or perhaps unwilling-- to throw away ANYTHING.

When the power of your green thumb is too great to contain

What happens when you cannot control your super power? Well, depends on the super power I guess.





Mine is my super-duper green thumb and its ability to make things grow.

No, I just cannot stop the power of my green thumb to make things grow...even when I'm not trying to grow anything!

Himalayan Blue Poppy Bedlum






So, there we were planning a trip to Longwood gardens* when Tom gets an email update.

It stated thusly:
Come see the rare and beautiful Himalayan Blue Poppies! They are in bloom RIGHT NOW! They only bloom for 2 weeks so DON'T MISS THEM!**


I thought that was rather weird. Not because these are rather rare flowers to see, but because I had already seen them almost every year for the past ten years so I didn't understand what the big holla-baloo was about them this year.

Justin the streaker





Once upon a time, I had little control over Justin. In truth, that only made sense since #1 he had autism and #2 he was a bit of a terror*. I might have been better at dealing with him if I had not had three other kids to tend to, but so it is. Nothing that can be done about it now.

Itchy palms and other old wives' tales





So, there I was minding my own business when I felt an itch on the palm of my hand and --shocking as it may seem-- I scratched it.

Tom smiled and said, “Guess you'll be getting some money tomorrow.” I just laughed and replied, “I wish!” Which wasn't true. I don't usually wish for money. What could I do with money? I already have a craft room bursting with yarn and as that would be the only thing I would buy with the green stuff, well...it would be wasted on me.

How many does it take?



Without my knowing that March 30 was the anniversary of the day in which President Ronald Reagan got shot, on that day I had been wondering how many secret service agents our current president has protecting him. Not for any nefarious reasons, mind you...just idol curiosity.

A bit of altering

I recently did a bit of altering. No, not of my personality or anything like that. Something much more easy to do. I'm talking about the altering of a lacy top which was given to me by a friend a few years ago. I wore it once as soon as I got it and it was a bit tight even then, but then I tried it on again recently--after gaining weight, blast it!-- and it was VERY tight, so tight that I would not wear it again unless I lose some weight.

Now I had two choices: I could give it away to someone or I could alter it so it fit*. Only thing is...how do you alter a lacy top like this?
