Spring Is Bustin' Out All Over!
Actually, it's bustin' out even more than in this picture, which was taken four days ago, but the main reason for this post, is to ascertain the species of the magenta flowering tree in the picture. I have lived here for over 17 years, and I still don't have any idea what it is. There are trees just like this, all along the sides of I-64 into Richmond, but just this one on my entire 4.25 acre property. A virtual Kewpie Doll goes to the the person who can tell me with metaphysical certitude, exactly what kind of tree it is.
More on last night's support group meeting.......when I got there last night, and set my lasagna down on the kitchenette counter, the first thing I noticed was that there were already two pasta dishes there, not including mine, but nothing at all vegetable based. There was a ham and macaroni casserole, a ziti and chicken casserole that admittedly had a few carrot slices in it, some potato salad, something that resembled date/nut bread, a Whitman's Sampler (chocolates), some pork barbecue, some very delectable peanut butter cookies, some muffins, and a few other things, but not a green, yellow, or red fibrous vegetable in sight. I'm thinking maybe I need to teach these poor girls how to eat, so next month, maybe I'll bring a huge bowl of salad, and an assortment of salad dressings. Whattayathink? Will they appreciate it, or will they say, "Veggies? Blech!"
