Perfect timing

And these babies have been fresh and lovely for more than a week. They also refrain from complaining about the unraked autumn leaves.

Taken together, I hope they draw the eyes of some weekend visitors away from the peeling facade of the CrazyStable.  I was going to go out and attack the property with rake and broom in the warmth of this afternoon, but a creepy bronchitis-like thing has started to spread through my chest. After spending almost all of January sick, I am appalled by this development. There are seeds to be planted, there is cement to be smashed up and removed...and there is a bicycle ride to train for.  Today even brought the brochure for the Brooklyn Botanic Garden plant sale, my yearly wild indulgence in "optimism over experience." The immune system is hereby commanded to produce radiant good health for the 21st Annual Vernal Assault on the Garden! [cough]

Deep sympathy from here. I am (I hope!) at the tail end of my second bout this year with that bronchial infestation. I know that won't make you feel any better. But if you need someone to confirm to unsympathetic relations how rotten it makes you feel, I shall be happy to oblige.

All the best,
