Greetings and salutations, everyone; yes, once again it is I, your popular host, Mani the purebred border collie, here today to bring you up to date on all the things we’re not doing, just like everyone else. You may remember me from such posts as “Helping In The Garden”, among so many, many others.
Here I am in a characteristic pose. You might have to look closely.
Well, things are weird. Like completely weird. The guy I live with hasn’t gone anywhere since he went to the doctor on the twelfth, but then again, it’s not like he goes a lot of places anyway. And now he can’t go anywhere.
I do know that I have plenty of food, thanks to Chewy dot com, and the guy I live with has food delivered from time to time, so we’re okay except for the fact that things are weird.
It snowed, and then melted, and then snowed. The guy I live with took a bunch of pictures of the willows in the snow, a while back, but never posted them on Facebook, which is where he was going to post them, but he’d already posted lots of these pictures on Facebook much earlier, so I thought maybe you’d like to see them here, as hopefully the last gasp of winter.
Kind of evocative, aren’t they? The guy I live with said “Evocative in a dismal and cold way.” He doesn’t like cold weather at all.
It was nice in between snowfalls, and it’s nice now, more or less, even though the guy I live with constantly complains about how cold it is. That’s because he’s an old person.
There’s been a little bit of gardening, but not all that much, because it hasn’t been warm enough for him.
The cyclamen, Cyclamen coum, are in flower, finally. (These are phone pictures.)
This one has just started; it’s called ‘Lake Effect’. And then there’s Fritillaria raddeana. These are regular camera pictures. The light was very odd, though.The hens and chicks are beginning to look pretty nice. Here’s a picture of one of them.
Well, that’s it. I just thought you might like to know that we’re still here, and that things are weird.
Until next time, then.
