Monstera, garden

Big,Bag,Bed Garden.

This is my newest raised bed. It is basically a bed made of heavy duty landscape cloth. It holds about 5 bags of raised bed soil. I have just put in bunching onions, annual Dahlias, chili peppers and I buried 12 gladiolus bulbs here and there. The little tomatoes are destined for a different container.

 Just to give you folks in the frozen north and Europe some hope, Spring has come to North Florida. The azaleas are putting on one of their best displays ever. All of these were taken in our garden in the last week. The road is our driveway.

Not far from the hydrant, the cone was having a party of it's own...For Martina

Box of rocks, MSD

There is an expression here in the US, and probably in other english speaking countries, "Dumber than a box of rocks." Howard Stern has a quiz show on his radio show where he questions stupid people about obvious well known facts and they giggle and answer wrong. Our late night talk/chat shows have a ball during election years asking the average man in the street important topical questions, which they invariably get wrong. I saw British shows do it before Brexit.

So, finding this box of rocks by the side of the road, I put the expression to the test. It got three out of ten topical questions right. So the expression is correct. I almost removed the three correct answers when the box revealed that it voted for Trump.

Now I am off to find a bag of hammers.

Huffy, Jax Beach

There is something in the way the cheap little plastic lens in the Holgas renders color that I just love. This is proof the you should always have your camera ready when you exit your car.

Chair, hat and shadows, Roscoe

My favorite hat from Provence. It hangs on this chair when we're home so I will be reminded of Saignon when I go out or return.

Monsteras, Roscoe

My Monsteras took a bit of a hit from our three days of hard frosts. As usual, they are charging back.
