I love gardening. I was taught at my grandparents knees and my love for getting my hands in the earth has never faded. I start to get the itch to get back out there long before winter has had its say. There isn't much to look at currently in my garden. Oh we have things in bloom right now. Jasmine, daffodils, hyacinth, wisteria, and some roses. But it's not nearly at its peak. For tonight's diary, I thought I would share some snaps of my cottage garden of years past. Hope you enjoy.

Can't remember the name of this Sunflower, sorry

My potager, which is technically against city ordinance because it's in my front yard.
Your happy gardener, Steveningen, at rest.
Now on to the important stuff!

when you find that proficient comment.
From Ed Tracey:
In the front-page story written by Kos Wingnut stereotyped California versus wingnut stereotyped Texas about the Republican Chuck DeVore who is
delighted that he moved out of California: kyril offers a three-step process
that a growing tech-sector company should consider in deciding where to set-up shop.
In lineatus' own diary Dawn Chorus: Interesting Observations cardinal scored a direct hit. Lineatus adds: the diary is full of bird nerd humor, but this one translates well for civilians...
In the nick of time, From sardonyx:
When lineatus requests some April 1 help in identifying a bird from matching mole, a rare-sighting identification is soon made.
And from your diarist, Steveningen:
G2geek tells us what to do to counteract conservative chain emails, and leftreborn's reply gives some additional tactics from Alinsky in a thread that rewards the reader as it continues.
Youffraita explains something I'd never really thought about, but which makes a whole lot of (funny) sense.
Jeff Y has a pungent analysis of the conservative Supreme Court justices with regard to the health care bill, which continues downthread courtesy noweasels and Upper West, the latter commenting on the Constitution's contents, the former replying how she missed that part at a key moment before the court, and Cali Scribe makes note of her procedure regarding said court.
In Shinobi Mystic's diary Anyone else tired of conservative chain e-mails yet? G2geek offers some excellent advice on dealing with these offenders.
