Large climbing rose bushes are thriving and then there is a newly sown flower bed in the side yard I've taken to calling "Rob's Garden" that's just full of mystery. Ice Stick Tulips and Cotton Candy Tulips came up but then an odd little creature burst thru the soil disguised as an artichoke. It finally opened up enough to reveal six leetle flower buds the other day, but wtf is it? The mystery continues...

I went through tons of Robin's seed packets and began some starter pots of snowball marigolds, two kinds of morning glorys, sunflowers, forget-me-nots and a few others. The marigolds are coming up and so is one of the morning glorys. I'll move them outdoors when after May 5-- my grandmother always said after Cinco de Mayo, it's safe to plant. (She also said don't go barefoot in any month that has the letter "R" in it)

I digress again, but thank you, my dear Robin. I really enjoy taking care of these flowers and I joyfully await the surprises you left behind.
