I'm still doing the depressing task of hacking off all the winter killed shrubs. The beautyberry is next. Unlike the hydrangeas and climbing roses, I don't see any new growth from the beautyberry. I've resurrected it before, but I have a feeling this might be it.

Not a fun job, Dawg...it's hard to hack things up if there's a slight chance they may survive, but sometimes it's the most humane thing to do.

Addie, that is one gorgeous pie. Apple?

GG...wow! Your romaine did great growing from the root. I'm impressed!

I trimmed some bushes this past winter and thought I was looking at a low hanging branch for the past couple weeks with the leaves coming in... and here one of the fallen/trimmed branches grew roots right out of the center portion of it. I went to pick up the branch and trim it this morning and it was rooted into the ground from the center Amazing stuff to me, who grows nothing.

Sitting here watching the end of the Red Sox game and thinking about my plan of attack for tomorrow's prep work for our Memorial Day cookout.

Got the new AC set up in the bedroom. I'm still not a widow, but it was close.

I just finished stuffing my criminis. The heat is on lowlow warming up the spaghetti sauce (I sense an Italian omelette in my near future tomorrow) and I'm watching The Dirty Dozen.

That IS amazing, isn't it? It's just doing what it's programmed to do, but fascinating nonetheless. I've lived in the desert for years and am still amazed at the wildflowers that push their way through the dry hard soil, after no rain for months, and flourish.

Glad you both survived! How nice to have AC in your bedroom now. I can't sleep when it's too hot.

I tell ya, Cheryl... it's enough to make you want to pick up a packet of sea monkeys and add water
