Help me Obi Wannietta ...
Help me Obi Wannietta ... you're my only hope!
I will do all that I can. May the Force of Blocking be with you!!
I have also finished the back of Kyle's BS Cotton sweater. This is wonderfully soft cotton - I really hope that it doesn't pill too much.
After a couple days of flurries my little flowers are braving a cool wind to bask in glorious sunshine. I can't wait to see my tulips - I love tulips!!
We also seem to have a skunk or two. Every morning there is evidence of their nightly foraging. I was told that mothballs would keep them away. As you can see in this picture I wasn't stingy. Someone forgot to mention that while they won't dig where the mothballs are, skunks don't mind walking around the mothballs and digging beside them. Since there seems to be no remedy - no I bloody will nottrap them and put them in my van for removal - and I can't spray for the grubs that the little stinkers seem to be so keen on until July!!!, I am taking limited comfort in knowing that my lawn is being aerated (big f'ing chunky aerated) and that there will not be as many grubs hatching (more noxious cocktail for the rest of 'em). Sigh Meanwhile, as I stroll the borders of my land the wind brings with it the tangy scent of naphtaline. Hopefully next weekend will be dry enough to rake and I can get ride of them.
