Just Shameless Flowers

Sorry about the rather infrequent posting, I was so traumatized by the spider incident that I had to take a little break. Just kidding, I've actually been working and those four hour shifts are really wearing me out.

Despite my rigorous schedule we've still been working on some projects but for now I'll just show you some of what's in bloom. Of course there are violets:

I really like them, I don't mind a yard full of them although I'm not sure everyone agrees.

Close by we also have vinca:

And then there was the magnolia which bloomed for all of about 5 days this year but it sure was nice while it lasted.

The combination of a couple days in the 90's and some cooler weather and wind in between meant all the petals fell quickly, and specifically on our driveway:

It's nice until you realize that they rot and get all slippery. You really have to be careful.

Just in case you can't quite make out what kind car that is it's a Rolls Royce, in case you were wondering. More real goings on coming soon, I promise.


  1. The flowers look all romantical and stuff...but the slippery would be a drag for sure! Anyhow, I dig yard-flowers too! Who needs pure grass anyhow?

  2. Violet jelly will rock your world. It tastes delicious and is so pretty!
