What a Lazy Weekend

On such a hot and humid weekend it's best to relax, take naps, drink tall drinks.

Here are the tchotchkes Dad brought from Africa. The masks are too thin to cover my face, so they are going on one of the walls. Gotta figure out where.

Chuck Wanted to Know...

...how my garden was growing. Here you see the catnip plant I bought, and in the background you may notice green things sprouting. They may be the things I planted, or repeats from last summer. You should also note my new patio fence. Note that it is a hot day, nearly 90, and that it is supposed to be hotter and humider tomorrow. Then it will rain, and the slugs will come out. The cats are always bringing slugs inside, and then slime gets on the carpet.

I did a little more scanning today. I found out that the scanners at the Science Center computer lab were better than the one at Lamont.
My Dad was here on Monday-Tuesday, back from an African vacation. He took a ton of animal pictures and got a gruesome movie of lions killing an impala. He's supposed to post them someplace so I can look at them.
I am going to the Canadian Rockies the week after next.

It's Hot as Heck...


...in the Home of the Bean and the Cod. Here's the fountain outside of the Science Center. Usually it's populated with kids. I got catnip and rosemary plants at the farmers' market. Then I bought some lettuce and pumpkin seeds at Rite Aid, because those were the only types they had left, and planted everything on my patio. Maybe stuff will thrive; maybe not.

Finally a New Patio Fence

And they gave me an extra 6 inches of dirt inside the fence, so I can plant a lot of stuff. I'm soliciting advice. What kind of desirable plants grow well without a lot of sun?
