    Photo-upload-422493?1422519883 On the balcony my Daffodils are budding, though they have had buds for the better part of a month actually, just they were very low down in the plants.

    Indoors and outdoors

    Photo-upload-422319?1422127324 I got my extended period of what passes for "warmth" in a Chicago winter-- several days between 35 and the low 40s. Managed to unfreeze the pond, knock the massive ice chunks into the hole and then refill it. Switched the pump to the shallow end and the heater to the deep end, so hopefully that f...

    Tilapia housecleaning day

    Photo-upload-422334?1422164240 It has been practically impossible to do a census of my fish due to the dark background of the river rocks, plus the cinder blocks I placed in there were very popular hiding places. At one point there were several fish inside each of three different blocks- heads or tails sticking far beyond the...

    orchid extravaganza at longwood gardens

    Photo-upload-422370?1422225492 Not my garden, but exquisite! We started going to Longwood regularly in 2012 after Jack died. It was a balm for our souls, it was exercise and it was beautiful. The first event we went to was that year's orchid extravaganza. This year, they reintroduced the orchid meadow, which was way cool. H...
