Long tail…with spurs!

Monumental sculpture

Sometimes you need to go big. Sometimes it’s boasting, however. Good luck distinguishing the two. Especially in the moment….

Paris. Not long ago. That statue’s not in my neighborhood.

O, the irony.

Azalea whte

So, this azalea is almost dead. This is the only surviving branch, and it sports two blooms and a bud, and maybe there’ll be another, but this may be it it it. I was going to tear up the plant (it’s a miniature) over the winter, but got lazy I guess…anyway, it gets one more hurrah….

Meanwhile, the privet I don’t care about (borderline hate, but can you really hate a plant that doesn’t poison you?) is blooming!! and generally putting on a good show.
