Sunday snippets and bits

in which our plucky heroine is making a second attempt at establishing some French tarragon...

My former tarragon, planted this spring, is still alive, but has grown no bigger than the tiny sprig that I planted in April. When I went to ask at the farmers market booth where I bought it, the vendor just gave me another plant! saying that "tarragon is tricksy and difficult" and that I wasn't doing anything wrong, just sometimes it doesn't want to grow. These are planted in a larger planter, with soil slightly enriched with compost, and covered with bird netting to prevent squirrel depredation. Fingers crossed that the young plants will be happy and grow.

Really need to get back to some decluttering, as that aspect has been sorely neglected for the last few months

Today whilst riding my bike to the grocery store in the morning, I was startled to see this front yard fountain fizzling away full of dry ice... (which was apparently, and according to the nice elderly man in the garage, the leftover bits from keeping their previous days picnic supplies frozen. He laughed and said that he always wanted his very own fog machine!)
