I have decided that Tuesdays are garden photo days. Why? Because, I can. There are so many things in life that I can't control: my students, my regular ed teachers, my husband, my daughters, my emotions (I cried over a dead possum on the way to school the other day...yes, I cried over roadkill), heck I can't even tell my cats what to do. So, certainly you will not begrudge me this one little thing that I can have some say over.
When I saw this cute little guy on some mystery plant (I planted it last year and forgot to label it), I had to take his picture. Don't you love the way they look at you? They follow you with their head, which is kind of cute and kind of creepy at the same time. OH..and for those of you that saw my picture on my Not-so-purple-coneflower , I have an update. First of all, I had big plans for this coneflower. I was going to save the seeds and then show the plant to some plant scientist. I would wow them with my newly created hybrid, which they would name after me, something like Pamicus Amazingus Coneflowerus. I would make millions. This blog would change from a blog about recipes that I cooked, to recipes that my personal chef cooked for me. Oh, I had high hopes. But guess what??? It has a disease!!! Not only am I not going to be a millionaire or have a plant named after me or have a personal chef, but I have to go out and pull up all my diseased plants.
