Happy Weekend

DandeI wanted to post a bug picture for Katy's Bug Week, but it's gone.  The weirdest thing -- a good-sized spider inside the stereo tuner, right by the dial thingy.  The fact that if it were not inside the tuner, it's fate would have been found smushed on the bottom of my shoe makes me feel no less sorry that it will just die in there because there's no way out.  How it got in there in the first place is a complete mystery.  I've had that tuner for over 20 years and I've never seen anything like it before!

SumSo, instead, I've got flora.  Since it was Kt who deleted the spider pics (or put them someplace "safe"), I swiped this great dandelion picture that she took.  On the right is my Sum & Substance hosta, and it's becoming quite substantial!  My foot is there for scale.  I am very pleased.  Elegans At left is a more artsy shot of Elegans, another large variety of hosta, with a more mundane, variegated variety peeking from behind.

Today, we're on our way north for my niece's high school graduation.  She, too, is an excellent student and garnered awards that will aid in the furthering of her education, too.  Thank you all for your kind words regarding Ai and her award.  Kt won one when she graduated, and now Ai -- maybe Mdd will earn one of those full rides.  Heh, a mom can dream, can't she?

Anyway, I'm hoping to hit the road very shortly after the grrs arrive home from their half-day at school, and maybe we'll make it to Yellow Dog Knitting in Eau Claire before they close today.  I sure hope so!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend.  Be safe.

that Katie is quite the photographer --- love the dandelion pic. Not that your hosta shots weren't lovely too, Vicki ...... I am keeping my fingers crossed for the swiftness of your journey to Yellow Dog!

Have a great weekend celebrating with the family!

Love the dandelion photo. Goodness knows they bug the shit out of everyone. :) Have a great weekend. Interesting about the spider. I could have Owen come and serenade it...the itsy bitsy spider...

Lovely hostas. Have an excellent weekend.

Hiya Miss Vicki!

I've been so incredibly busy for the past few weeks that I have neglected to come over here and cheer for you...please accept my apology. I am also encouraging my husband right now, a pack-a-day guy for 28 years, to give it up. He's been on the patch for 6 days now, only snuck 2 cigarettes and felt guilty as all get out. I'm cheering for the whole lot of you. I know what it takes...

I just planted 3 new hostas. I'm really liking those leafy things...

Congrats to Ali...

Blessings to you all,
Susie
