A Request Finally Attended

I certainly didn't mean to have my slug rain up for so long and it certainly is not a good portrayal of our recent weather. But same said weather has made me rather ambitious but not nearly as ambitious as the weeds it may have seemed.

But as I came home late enough from town to not have a reasonable amount of time to put my work clothes back on and make it worth the change I thought I would take care of the first of two requests.

A Dear Reader actually rang me up on the telephone and politely but earnestly requested that I put up a new post so that she would no longer have to see the dangling slug, it was giving her nightmares. I did say that I would attend to it, but quite frankly, I have been terribly tardy in that regard.

So I apologize for any nightmares I have caused you Dear Reader, hopefully this post will remove any dreaded memory of the reality of living in the land of slugs. But I must say, at least they are not really lethal, I do believe I will keep my soggy living arrangement if all I must suffer is slugs and voracious deer.

May I present my Syringa vulgaris 'Krasavitsa Moskvy' for your viewing pleasure today? This is the bloom from one of two Beauty of Moscow Lilacs that I picked up as barely bigger than twigs three years ago from Lawyer's Nursery Stock Sale.
The fragrance is not as strong as my common lilacs but it is strong enough, and the blooms are exquisite.
As I just dozed off and typed about forty "k's" at the end of that last sentence, therefore I will wrap up here with a promise to get to a thank you for the Upsy Downsy tomato planter from Tipper at Blind Pig & The Acorn and a couple of pictures just to show you how it is going so far.
And Dear Reader I have another promise hanging here, I have promised to retell a rocket-ship tale about me and God and his infinitude, so hang in there, I will do my best to be back tomorrow.
Good night, sweet dreams, if you sing a hymn tonight as you fall asleep, you most likely will wake singing it in the morning.

I like the new picture very much! And the weeds on this side of the high way are just as prolific.( slugs too ) I know I thoroughly weeded the garden only 2 days ago , where did the field of weeds come from and how come they bloom so much quicker than the flowers i WANT to bloom?

A tale about God and His infinitude? I am awaiting!

Well I certainly didn't want to come here and get slugged once again. The flowers are a good change.

Well I'm sorry I haven't been tuning into the "slug" picture. As I scrolled down I really am glad I haven't. I like your new replacement post.
