I realized that today's seen-in-Portland cell phone picture looked very familiar.
I then realized that this blog is starting to look a lot like the blog of last March, which you can find here. Its subtitle should be, "When in doubt, take pictures of things in the apartment and things outside."
Reviewing that old blog post reminded me of two very important things. #1 - It's been almost a year since HM and I took our road trip to Central/Eastern Oregon to see the John Day Fossil Beds. #2 - It's almost St. Patrick's Day and holy crap! My street is on the parade route! Better remember to move the car so I don't get trapped on the day of the parade!
If you want to see more pictures of spring flowers or just read a great blog about botany and gardening--particularly small space and urban gardening, check out You Grow Girl. I have been reading two of Gayla Trail's books this winter, Grow Great Grub and the newest, Easy Growing. Today I learned that the latter is available for the Nook, and I couldn't be more thrilled!!!!! Also, I love the violet photo on today's post. Between this post and her book, I wish I could find a place to buy Viola odorata and start growing them on the roof.
It's raining again today--cold and wet and gray. Back to the winter routine. But it's easy to be a little happier just knowing yesterday (sunny and high 50's) happened.
This morning I had two bizarre public transit incidents. The first is lengthy enough for its own post. The second is short enough, but involved backstory, so I'll save those for tomorrow. I know how I am. I know what's plagued this blog during the busy months of January and February. When I start a lengthy post and have to stop in the middle (because of offline real life), I feel I can't write again until I finish that original draft post. Which seems more and more difficult as time goes on. It's like the unanswered e-mail in an Inbox. Eventually, you reach a point where you're not sure if it's worse to ignore it or worse to finish and send that draft, reminding the person that they e-mailed you in the first place thereby notifying them of your delayed response so that they can get mad at you.
So more tomorrow!
