Me: Hey hon? What’s the name of those little blue flowers? You know, the ones we seeded a couple of years ago.

Lynda: You’re kidding, right?? Joking? You mean the seeds we got in the mail after making a donation to the Alzheimer’s Society!?!?

Me: Yeah, those would be the ones.

Lynda: Those ‘little blue flowers’ are FORGET-ME-NOTS !!! (mutter, grumble, curses under breath)

Me: Ooohhhh……… er, uh, thanks hon. (maybe this years donation should be a little larger, he surmises)

Naming flowers isn’t exactly my strong suit. These ones above might be some sort of crocus but I’m not betting on it. A good name for them would be ‘Starry White’, I think. 

?? Some Kind of Tree ??

Not so great with varieties of trees either. I know this one winds up with small, red berries that the birds, squirrels and bats quite like.

So, has anyone seen my memory laying around? I had it just… well, awhile ago.

Lord, I’m glad it is springtime. Today was the first day it was actually too warm for comfort – around 80F. But I ain’t complaining; I just need a little time for adjustment. ‘Lovin’ Every Minute Of It’.
