I’ve got pieces of April

To clarify on the last post, we can put trash bags in the recycling bin, where some poor schmuck has to grab them out and hoist them onto the trucks going south to the landfill and deal with any mess they make.

Two days ago, we were at two flower clusters and holding on the Fuji apple and the green was starting to pop out so it seemed like that was going to be it. Only two? I wondered if the snails had eaten all the flowers in the night (which they will do) and I just somehow missed them all? Went out tonight and there were new buds bursting out all over the place on the Fuji and new petals all over the other apple. Oh me of little faith. Well there you go.  (And I scattered more of that Sluggo, an organic snail-only-killer, and around that August Pride peach with the new nibble in the leaf, just making sure.)

Meantime, I lost six non-spare pounds in the past week and I’m still pretty wiped so we did Japanese barbecue take-out for Michelle’s birthday and I baked angel food cake. They came home with strawberries. And hey, those berries came in a clear plastic clamshell of just the right size and will be holding one apple or one peach out of some critter’s paws or beak. Perfect.

I told Michelle she shared a birthday with someone.

Oh? Who?

Sandra Boynton.

She looked very pleased.

And the grandson baby blanket knits on (made good progress today). And the baby, unlike his big brother, waits. So far.

Trash bags in the recycle bin? Well,that makes sense. Not! As for your fruit garden, Go! Go! Grow!

Beautiful blooms, but the call out of Sandra Boynton really had me smiling.

Did you, too, get married at a time when there were many wedding gifts of towels or pillow cases with Boynton cats on them? Maybe it was just W & me attracting those gifts, and I must admit, we sure enjoyed them. Not to mention that we still have a cupboard full of Boynton mugs and some of our favorite kid’s books were Boynton. (And when the moon is on the rise, the animals all exercise!)
