As Dr. X suggests, D.C. Sessions’ talk about “mowing the oregano” sounds like a euphemism for an obscene act. But if photos are to be believed, he may actually have oregano in his garden (although I have never before heard of mowing it). Here is his garden, with an amount of sun of which I am, at this point in the year, unabashedly jealous.
It’s still too soon for outdoor gardening here in Michigan, but a couple of weeks ago I started some tomatos, cukes and peppers in a nifty little indoor greenhouse I bought at the local garden center. I may have started a bit too soon.
But as a last sign of what a wacky winter it’s been, our local photographer extrordinaire Lad Strayer snapped this shot of a loon on a local lake, well outside it’s normal range.
Johanna and I drove by, and although we had to park illegally and stand out in a cold drizzle, we counted three loons, the first she’d ever seen.
Life is strange, but good.
