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.
