Both of my wandering guys are home. Hubby is back from visiting his mom, and Little Guy is back from camp.
Whew. All accounted for and safe and sound.
Unfortunately, Ellbee was still Ellbee to all the staff and fellow campers, so my prayer for her personal rebellion and anarchy failed.
But I asked her how her week went and called her Daniella and got an impromptu hug from her in return.
Last year I wrote about Hubby, aka "Fluffy, the Peony Slayer". Heh. You have to read this before you go on.
Anyway, like I mentioned there, 11 years ago I bought some lilac bushes---which I tried to nurture for awhile---hoping they'd take to our climate and grow. No luck. They died. So I forgot about them and moved on to other plants.
On Friday, when we were leaving to drive up to get our Little Guy, I saw this small plant at the end of the driveway---about 2 feet tall---that was starting to bloom with lavender spikes.
What in the heck WAS that?
Holy smokes. It was one of the lilac bushes I'd planted all those years ago! It actually survived and is blooming!
On another note---keeping all the windows and doors closed, but it STILL isn't preventing that dreaded yellow pine pollen from sneaking in on our clothes and shoes and dogs.
There's a fine yellow dust on everything, and that part of the cycle is just starting.
