#Florespondence

All the frills and shimmer, this little flower is an alpine, Soldanella 'Spring Symphony', also known as an alpine snowbell. It doesn't mind the cold, and it's been in the ground less than a year and is giving a sterling display already!

Being vaccinated does NOT mean it's okay to ask neural nets to participate in meme formats about pandemics that didn't exist when their training data cut off in Oct 2019. You will get memes that make no sense. Be smart.

alc/liqueur making 

Keeping it simple this spring, and I picked just enough dandelions to do a pint of dandelion liqueur. Base is vodka, it will be sweetened with local honey once the plant material stage is past.

I feel I need something cozy-snuggly... pls send pics of your kittehs :)

We adopted a new fluffer. He's so huge and adorable and playful. He keeps trying to play with the cats and they are like "efffff no!"

Another lunch hour painting. Kind of overworked and muddy in places, but that’s all the more reason to keep practicing!
