Spring, Allergies, and Baby Monsters

Jasmine

Some jasmine that has miraculously survived more than a couple of winters under my “care”.

Well, it looks like Spring is finally here. I love the temperamental bitch, even though she makes my eyes glue themselves shut, my nose alternately run and stop up, and then there’s the headaches. Oh gods, the headaches. But despite all this she makes me smile. At least when I’m heavily medicated. That reminds me; I need more meds.

CactusBaby

Yes, everybody in Texas has a potted cactus. It’s the law. I love when the little baby cacti sprout off of “Mom”. It reminds me of some parasitic monster that belongs in a Syfy movie or maybe Sigmund the Sea Monster.
