Summery Weedy Garden
This is the front garden of a house around the corner. Maybe dandelions have conquered this little patch of earth through simple neglect on the part of the owner, or maybe he or she likes them. Personally, I vote for the latter. A refreshing change from the urban and suburban tendency toward meticulous landscaping, right?
I don't know what that purple flower is. Maybe a hardy remnant from the garden's earlier incarnation.
I bought my ticket to fly back to Tampa in July. Not that cheap, let me just say. I think we actually got a better deal when we went back over Christmas, which I don't understand. In any case, I'm looking forward to spending some time with my parents, and my brother and his family -- and maybe I can get away for a day or two with my friends John and Sue in Anna Maria, too.
I also bought a guidebook for Turkey, which almost certainly means that's where Dave and I will go in August. Once I've invested in a guidebook I feel committed! It's symbolic, you know?
Yesterday I replanted our horseradish in a much bigger pot. It was so potbound just looking at it was painful and suffocating. Now I'm looking forward to a big thriving mass of horseradish leaves this summer, maybe to feed a bumper crop of caterpillars!
