in which our plucky heroine takes a closer looksee around the yard...
The big euphorbia in the front yard is about to go to seed. The huge chartreuse blossom clusters every year are really spectacular, but the way it reseeds everywhere had me thinking of pruning them off now that this year's seeds are ripening, which will allow the plant to divert energy from seed production to vegetation. To my surprise, the plant seems to be chock full of ladybugs...
These interesting mushrooms turned up in one of the fig tree pots this morning, and by this evening their caps had entirely disappeared. I suspect that the odd weather cycle of peculiarly warm weather, then rain, then back to pleasant cool dampness has encouraged fungi to colonize the mulch.
Hmmm April is looking like a month of accomplishment, but that "things gone" column needs to start catching up with the rest of the pack... and not much month left to do so!
