Blithewold ... AGAIN!


Calling all horticulturalists out there. WHAT IS THIS? 

A Sabbath pause

I'd be going out on a limb here, but I'd say, I was a bit pleased with myself here. Yes ... this was a 10 second timed self portrait ;-) 

Blithewold in all it's perennial glory

Dahlia's Art

Lately, I've though a lot how I love round things, round houses, round doors, a round world ...

... and HEY! A round belly with our baby inside!


There upon the bench my wife takes a rest
to take an artsy pictures, I'm up for the test
For art is here and art is there
If we look closely, it just might be everywhere

"I'll admit I split banannas,
Take Easter eggs and make them dye.
But I never harmed and onion,
So why should they make me cry" Muppets

"I've got supper in the oven,
good women's loving
And one more day to be my little kid's dad [well soon anyway]
Lord knows I'm a lucky man" Montomery Gentry

Wow! What I wouldn't give for a three hour q & a with their chief horticulturalist!

"Like a lily among thorns
       is my darling among the maidens" Song of Solomon


More perennial splendor

Bekah safety testing Blithewold's latest garden creativity ... the "grass bench". I've so got to make one of these! Don't you think that 35 year old mini orange tree thing is neat? As a matter of fact, I think everyone should have one. It should be a right! Just like health care. In fact, why don't we add that to the health care bill. Amendment 1,275,431, "Everyone shall have a right to a free Calamondin orange tree" 

Well folks, that's all for now. Work hard, pray hard & play hard.
Semper Reformanda!

All I know is that in the past, my favorite flower at Blithewold has been the Moonflower. I'm not 100% on this, but that definitely looks like one...
