Fridaaaaay!… It Grounds Me

Sweet Alyssum!

I have a thang for ground covers. They ground me.


There are some thymes and Vinca minor in the frontscape, along with some hen & chicks and two patches of this white sweet alyssum. And I’m thinking about adding some Vinca major in the back garden as an undead bunny deterrent. They ate the three pink fairy rose bushes I planted there last year after the new fence was put in. The Vinca major can run wild with the sweet woodruff and woodland and common violets.

It has come to my attention that the sweet alyssum and the sweet woodruff are the only white specimens I have in my garden.

Isn’t that sweet?

Here be Friday, splish-splashin’ right into the weekend.

Cone Girl gets her stitches out this afternoon. Yass!

You know what to do. Meet you in the bar in 3…2…1…


Look and Laugh: A little something…

First — Sweet Alyssum blooming in the frontscape. Be still my alyssum-loving heart.

Happy May Day!

Here’s a little something to get you through Hump Day…

Look and laugh.

I would love to see Goldie Hawn explain Daylight Saving Time.

Love you, Goldie.

This is from Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In (TV Series 1967-1973). I was watching Mad About You (TV Series 1992-1999) on Netflix last night, and in one segment they were doing a dream sequence Laugh-In style. That got me on the Googles this morning.

Mad About You still makes me laugh. Thank you, Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt. And who can forget Hank Azaria as Nat Ostertag, dog walker extraordinaire.

Hump Day…sprint over it!
