5 Good Things About August 19th

  1. Bodhi's birthday. Happy birthday Bodes!
  2. Haircut day! Short, sharp and rock-star tousled.
  3. Sunshine, clear skies and gentle breezes.
  4. Puppy dogs everywhere.
  5. Everyone has dusted off their spring wardrobes, suddenly everyone has legs and arms again!

Your new nasturciums pic reminds me: last October, we were holidaying at a dog-friendly farm stay B&B in Grafton, and the woman who runs the place had the most glorious, vivid yellow nasturciums - and she allowed me to take some cuttings. Knowing how prolific nasturciums can be, I had no doubt that the cuttings would grow like weeds - and indeed, there has been plenty of foliage. They trail beautifully.

It's been a very busy week - lots of late afternoons at work - and I've not really been out in the yard much before dark this week - and on Friday night I noticed that the first flush of (presumably vivid yellow?) nasturcium flowers has actually been and gone! Drat. And double drat.

Happy Birthday, Bodhi-kins!! Come over here and gimme some sugar.

My most memorable August 19th was my college graduation. I had to plan the graduation party where I proceeded to get drunk off my ass. On the 19th I was throwing up in the bathroom not five minutes before I was on stage giving a (shortened)speech.
