It must be spring...

The rain is bruising the gardenias, pouring out their perfume.
I've had a month long headache.

The poisonous buck moth caterpillars are dropping like kamikaze pilots from the oaks.



And of course, one has just dive bombed my foot today...again.

Pain!

I didn't know what chiggers were 'til I went to the southern U.S. and was warned not to touch the Spanish Moss.

And now this!

Best to stay in Canada where the worst that can happen is being plowed down by a bull moose.

Word has reached us that the sweet olives are blooming all over NOLA. I miss them SO much. They won't bloom out here, it's too temperate.
