For my friend on the phone:
Please forgive me screaming in your ear.

For my S/O:
Please forgive my screaming at you as well.

Blotanical alert!

Botanical- Where garden blogs bloom!


I stumbled across a collection of gardeners- amature, professional, container, raised beds... you name it! If you are a gardener (or want to be one) you should click on the link above. Happy gardening!

The Hummers are coming!!!!

Hummingbird sightings for spring 2008


Hummingbird nectar:

1 cup plain white sugar
4 cups of water

I still bring my nectar to a boil (habit). What you dont use right away (huh? its only a bit over 4 cups) you can refrigerate safely for up to two weeks.
