Lucky Day

So I was tending to the garden this afternoon when I stumbled upon a four leaf clover. Considering that i've been looking for one since I was six I lost my mind for a few hours. Sanity returned, I took a picture, then 86 more unecessary identical ones.

I apologize in advance for my cuticles.

The Window Feeder


So I installed a window bird feeder a few weeks ago. I was certain it wouldnt attract anything but to my surprise even the goldfinches have been drawn to it but mostly I attract House Ficnhes. It's a great, gentle, natral thing to wake up to. I highly reccomend getting one. I also suggest investing in sunflower seeds as opposed to the mixed formulas.

The following pictures chronicle my success but the cou de gras is the video of various finches sharing it..

Pay no mind to the distant thunda

So despite fainting at work last friday, wacking my head and having off from work since, I still managed to hover in front of my bedroom window so I could film another thunderstorm. This one yeilded slightly better results than the first one. There was some epic lighting, and the following video features the top three lighting bolts.

Garden '09

So here it is; two cherry ,two hybrid, and two better boy tomatoes. Plus there's basil, oregano, and chives, and a bonus shot of a snapdragon which has somehow survived my 'surface of the sun' deck.

Marveleux!

So i'm taking a break from the norm to give a quick review of a really juicy tomato.

http://http//thehumanmarvels.com/

It's a website promoting the most famous and infamous of sideshow performers. From the zealously tattooed to those born a bit different., it has everything. There's the always popular Elephant man (Joseph not John) the endearing Schlitzie the pinhead and my personal favorite Myrtle Corbin who possessed a parasitic twin which made her appear to have four legs.
Not only are you provided with information on these fascinating individuals but you're given a fair account of their lives.
It's interesting to see how they often become self- made, earning decent money from their work in the sideshow circuits and it's great to see how 'The Human Marvels' delves into this so tastefully.

Nope you wont see the word Freaks here, unless of course it's the movie.
