Fields of Chives
I think I planted 2 of this kind. One of them was planted across the sidewalk from the spot shown below. ^_^ I do love self-propogating plants. If you get a chance to eat chive flowers, by all means, do! They have a complex flavour that comes in 3 or 4 waves. Very tasty!
I think this is supposed to be a weed, but I've decided to call it a flower. Do you think if I nurture it, it will die?
My current "artistic" project is making an herbal of sorts - a book to keep track of all my herbs and other garden plants, lists of what needs to be done to them and when, and all of their various uses and properties. I'm having fun making the cover pages for the herbs.
But it doesn't have to be a completely serious undertaking. ^_^
If you have any fun herb quotes that I can include, please let me know.
In other news, I've sparred twice since spraining my ankle. It seems to set me back just a little, but not badly. I'm trying not to hit with any spinning back kicks.
Sluggie has a job being a Mommy's Helper for a second family, which I may or may not have mentioned. Today she got paid to swim in their pool. (yes, Mom was present!) Lucky girl! :)
Mollusc has changed her research paper topic from ravens to bats. Today I took her to the birdseed/feeder store to interview the Audubon lady there who fosters orphaned/hurt bats. The woman said she asked some great questions. :) She had a darling baby bat to show us. She had just fed him and he wanted to hang out with her instead of going back into his little tent. Very, VERY cute. :)
I'm currently reading Lety's Gift for review, and it's great! I have another of her books -- Passup Point -- coming for review, too. And I'm still chowing through Outlander #5. Whew!
Last night on a spur-of-the-day thing, we had a bunch of TKDers over after sparring for a pancake supper. What a blast! :)
We have the new Avatar DVD, so now it's time for an Avatar fest.
