This is our favorite browser, works in Linux as well as Windows. Very stable, and FREE! Firefox – Rediscover the Web

He fixed it!

Now the blog looks good in my favorite browser [Firefox]! There was some sort of file missing that IE and Netscape weren’t smart enough to notice, but Firefox did.

I have updated the website for my business a little bit (probably won’t be noticeable to most). Need to figure out how to to the 404 message so it looks nicer.

The frogs are singing at night again! It is so pleasant to hear their chirruping, and peeping. And at dawn the birds…

I like the way the fruit trees peek over the hill now that the rugosas are gone, I might replace them with something a lot smaller. I wonder what a hillside of tulips, lilies and daffodils; yarrow, english daisies and poppies; with spots of lupine, peonies and mosses… It wouldn’t need mowing, it would have color much of the year, and at harvest time I could still reach the trees. I’ll need to figure out how the paths will work… Hm. Ideas, ideas, and no money, energy or time. Oh well — one of these years!

G is home still, and will be tomorrow as well. He just needs some time to get over this virus, but he is definitely doing better. I feel fine today.



Yes, Spring.

G was home recuperating still, so at lunchtime we walked out and looked at the yard. The first pink tulip has opened up. There are trillium in the cedar grove, a few open, and many more to come. We saw two snakes, basking in the warm sunlight. The red-flowering currant at the back of the house is in full bloom. And yes, a couple of the peach blossoms did open up today. The raspberries are leafing out. Likewise the elderberries. And the red huckleberries. The mountain huckleberry, which is evergreen, has loads of blooms and buds on it. The rhodie has nice big buds, and the planters and beds by the front door are just lovely. All in all, it’s a good start to the fullness of the growing season.

I cut back one of the rugosa roses today (hard — getting ready to dig it up), and will try to do the other tomorrow, should be able to — it’s a smaller one. Will dig them up this weekend, I think and give them to a friend, and then I can see what I want to plant in their place! I will have several smaller rugosas that suckered off the parent plants, and I think I will use them to build a hedgerow down by the road. The little birds and frogs would appreciate the cover, and they would help control the runoff when it rains.
