a small mystery


in which our plucky heroine regroups...

In the sunshine of a lovely Sunday morning, this curious not-quite-ready-to-blossom spring bulb caught my eye. I do not remember planting it, and it is not similar to other things in the front yard. The leaves look vaguely like my favorite Fritillaria meleagris, but until it actually blooms, it shall remain a mystery!

I have signed up with "ChipDrop" in hopes of getting more free wood chip mulch. Tomorrow morning I will move the fig tree pots, and the trash bins, to a spot out of the driveway, just in case. There is no way to know when the wood chips will be delivered, or exactly what quantity!

After the debacle Saturday of my right eye giving notice, today did not live entirely up to my weekend expectations. This morning I managed to carefully ride my bike to the shops to get some more canning jar lids, since the one thing I did yesterday was prep the applesauce for canning. Peeling and pre-boiling apples requires no great ocular focus. There are now a neat dozen 8 oz jars ready for pantry storage. However, the continued flashing in my peripheral vision was exceedingly distubing, and I finally gave up and lay down for a nap. Must have needed the sleep, since I slept for most of the day, waking only in time to put the chickens to bed.
