Name day

Yarrow cluster

Yarrow. Again: yarrow. Why do I keep thinking tansy? Tansy is yellow-gold!

Vine four

I see four vines in here: poison ivy, Virginia creeper, Boston ivy (or similar), and something that reminds me of a grapevine, but isn’t, and I don’t know what it is.

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Archie? I get that the Harrison is an unsubtle nod to dad, but Archie? Not even Archibald? Actually, the latter is even more awkward, graceless, and inelegant than Archie. Hey, he’s both a British royal (we know) and an American (we assume), so wee Archie will probably pull his name off with ease.

    We have a great-nephew named Brody. You can imagine the “outcry” at that name, particularly from people familiar with Moo-U’s Brody complex or whatever it is. I predicted the kid would rock his name and he does! I bet there’ll be a lot of Archies in the next few years 😉
