Pretty Picture Overload

Today I will (in no particular order) take Athena to preschool, have a conference call, write up a fact sheet and presentation on an actually pretty interesting bond fund, bang out material for The Book of the Dumb, do invoices, sand down some details in Android’s Dream and kiss my wife. Also, today is the last day of the month and I have bandwidth to burn! So for you today, I give pretty pictures of some of the things that are growing around our house: rose bushes, daffodils, wildflowers, crab apples and, for my ex-girlfriend, our cat Ghlaghghee. With the exception of the last of these, I am not responsible for the care and tending of any of the above; if you admire any of them you can thank my wife.

So here you are. I may be back later in the day, but then again (all things considered) I may not. I’m busy, and busy is good.

  2. I believe you’re spoiling the little monster. He can attack your feet, sit on your books, and use your hand tools without even asking permission. Even crypticly-named kittens need parental limit-setting.

  3. Heh, my husband and I have been arguing over for two weeks about the flowers you referred to as daffodils. He insists they are daffodils, I’m pretty sure they are actually daylilies (Stella de Oro if I’m not mistaken). I’m never going to hear the end if he was right.

  4. Hmmm. Well, I’m not at all an expert, they just look like what I think of as daffodils. I could be wrong. Very wrong.

  5. I’m also pretty sure they’re daylilies. At least mostly because the season for daffodils is over — they’re pretty much one of the first flowers that come up in the spring, whereas daylilies don’t bloom until the summer.

  6. I’m no expert, but if you are referring to the bigger yellow flowers, some of which haven’t opened yet, they sure look like lilies to me.

  7. John Scalzi — If I didn’t know better, I’d think you were turning into Thomas Jefferson.
