First day of April

I want it to be warmer, but it's only April 1, so there's little hope. Only a fool's hope. I wish I had some elaborate prank to pull, but it's not in me. Too much work. I'm watching the grass grow, waiting for a stretch of relatively dry weather. I've got to service the mower (oil, blade) and remove mole hills from the lawn before making the first pass. Any day now.

The dried artichoke flowers are releasing their hairy seeds.

And there are little piles of things here and there that need to be cleaned up, like these dead artichokes on our pathway. I cut them down, but I didn't dispose of them yet. Baby steps.


  1. As usual, fabulous photo. This is not an April Fools joke.

  2. The plant looks so interesting

  3. cheryl, thanks (also not an afj).
