Happy Monday!

GAME OF THRONES IS BACK ON MY EYEBALLS. Oh, how I love this show. I'm back recapping them, so come talk to me about how awesome it is! (We're spoiler-free for the books, please remember that. NO SPOILERS, just discuss the episode, okay?)

Huge weekend at the site:
Later today is the next trio of eps for Dexter, MAD MEN and Bomb Girls, so be sure to come back for those.

ION, I finished my monster fic, it's in edits right now, and I might just start posting a chapter a day today, since my unbelievably awesome beta/editor (flaming_muse) and I are a large portion of the way through it. And it's apparent that I've totally lost my ability to grammar. Derp. Anyway, if not today, then later this week. She has a life to lead on her own. :)

And in other news, who wants to see some pics of the many many things blooming in my garden?

This is my Julia Child rose bush, and oh my GOD it smells amazing. It's about chest high. Those blossoms are as big as my hand. <3

Lily of the Valley! (These were all taken with my phone, so they're not the best quality.)

Bluebonnets! I let last year's go to seed, and I have the thickest patch of them. Oh, they're wee star leaves make me happy. This is about four feet wide and two feet tall. Huge patch. The entire side of my house is lined with them.

I love this crazy rose bush. They come out hot pink, turn coral, then yellow before they fade. <3

So. Pretty.

I can't wait to watch GoT tonight, hopefully I'll manage to stay awake unlike last night.

STAY AWAKE. It's a lot of establishing what's going on, but even that is entertaining as hell. <3

I didn't intend to crash, but I was apparently way more tired than I thought. On the plus side, I've already read book two -- I swear I won't spoil you -- so I did manage to hold onto whatever little I saw and make perfect sense out of it.

Yay flowers!!

What do you mean I have a life of my own? That's not what you said when you chained me to my desk!

OMG Stoney, your flowers are glorious. ::wishes for smell-o-vision LJ::

The yellow roses are UNBELIEVABLE.

And would you believe I've not run the sprinklers once? Not since last October. YAY DRY FARMING.

So gorgeous! All of them!

We travelled to San Antonio/Austin for spring break and the insane amount of bluebonnets along the roads and highways were just stunning. And all the other wildflowers happened to be there en masse. Everything is still very dry and dead around here, but some wildflowers are struggling through anyway, and it's making me SO HAPPY!

I need to prune my rosebushes BADLY, but it's probably unwise to do so this late, right?

Oh my gosh, the blue bonnets are STUNNING right now!! They make me so happy, too.

I would recommend NOT pruning them. That's something you do before they're actively growing. Once they've stopped blooming, then you can prune them. [/Master Gardener]

Roses are pretty damn tough, though. They'll look wonderful!

Those roses are gorgeous!

And congratulations on getting the story to beta -- that's a huge deal.

I love love LOVE roses. Well, there aren't many flowers I don't like. (I'm looking at you, Carnations and Marigolds...)

Oh man, there was a lot of celebrating this weekend. <3

Ooo! I have blubonnets! They haven't flowered yet (hurray PNW) but I definitely have some! I recognize the leaves! Neat.

Now I just need to plant my blueberry and raspberry plant.
Apr. 2nd, 2012 07:17 pm (UTC)
Star leaves! For the Lone Star State! (They're our state flower, hee)

Oh, how I long for blueberries and raspberries. It's took hot and alkaline here for them. =(

So THAT'S what they are called! Lily of the Valley! It grew so much off those in the woods where I grew up! :-D Everywhere!

These are the flowers that could only come from the hands of a Master Gardener. I WANT A JULIA CHILD ROSE BUSH! It gets you drunk when you sniff it and it's edible, right?

Can I move to Dallas? I can't afford a house in Auckland and it's depressing. All I want in life is a house to call my own so I can have a dishwasher. I'm dreaming big. Oh, and the fact that I've yet to see the new seasons of Game of Thrones or Mad Men. D:

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
