The Pale Rook

 Is it a bird, a plane?

 No, it's Althea...'tho she did fly here from Scotland.

 And she kept her cool.

Don't you just love the work of really imaginative, talented artists? So do I.  Althea is the work of Johanna, artist and doll maker.  You will find her magical creatures over at The Pale Rook.  She is also on facebook.  Her Etsy shop is usually empty, as her pieces sell out within minutes of her posting on Etsy.

Welcome to The Bunny Bungalow, Althea!

Note: Scooter and Skipper tried to fight me for Althea as soon as they saw her unwrapped this afternoon.  Close call!

Pissing and Moaning

Stink Bug on the front porch and on my camellia this morning
If you want to learn more, click here.

That's me, pissing and moaning.  Or at least I was before getting a new knee.  I had a total knee replacement recently.  Surgery went beautifully but physical therapy is a bitch.  I like to think my knees look better than the bug's knees above.

Observation: If you are "double jointed" as I am, don't expect your two knees to function the same as they did prior to injury/surgery. So, now I have a knee that can pop backwards and one that won't. Feels strange but hopefully I will get accustomed to the different feel.

Confession: I am still pissing and moaning as I recover.  But I do it to myself, as Tall Husband just had a total right hip replacement and needs a brave person nearby.  He will get a left hip replaced as soon as he recovers from this one.  Hope we both live through his next one!

Well Hello!

I planted a dozen bulbs two years ago.  None showed their petals until...I found this one hiding under the azaleas this week.  What a great surprise. Little Tulip, what took so long?

My Cosmos

I have attempted twice to have a wildflower garden here at the Bungalow, however, the flower gods are against me.  In frustration, one rainy, gloomy day, I put on my rain slicker and wellies, then took my little crank seed broadcaster into the alley.  I let the remaining wildflower seeds fly where they would, not caring if the birds ate them or if they were mowed down (as were my previous plantings.)  Then I forgot about them.  Until, I happened to glance down the alley one summer day while walking the dogs back home. There were dozens of bright flowers dancing in the breeze.  The dogs and I ran down the alley sniffing flowers here and there.  That was a happy day!  The Cosmos are still blooming, giving off a gentle fragrance not unlike the spice clove.  So, I think my Poppy seeds would do well in the alley over the winter, blooming next Spring.  What do you think?
