It's been a long time....

Planted a Smoke tree.

Cotinus coggygria 'Royal Purple'
Pronounced: koe-TY-nus koe-GIG-ree-ah

That's it to the right side in the bird bath picture. I suppose I need a better picture to document that properly. Oh well....another time.

Instead of that can see my monsterously huge pansy!
It's a sole survivor from last year. I had half a dozen encircling the bath but the other ones were so weak they gave up to my rake in early spring. This one held fast and really thrived after I scattered hunks of rabbit poop around. I don't compost it first. I mix it directly into the soil with my cultivator.

Poison Ivy...I know what it looks like. But it got me twice this year before it showed up.

Dear Blank Blog----
How can I fill you up?
This Springtime entry started above, was the last attempt I made at writing to you.
I just can't keep up with being clever and creative and all that it entails.
So--- I will continue to post at my own lack of speed.
I don't know who will see this but I've decided to write just to see for myself the changes in my life.
Everyday slips by and a new one steps up without me really remembering half of what happened.
I was crushed when somebody thought I put the elephant clip in here as a hoax.
That's not at all me to try and fool anyone... and I did a fair amount of research since.
The elephant's name is Hong and as a matter of fact she most surely can paint an elephant. It is not a HOAX!!!
