I don’t know how long I’ve had this aloe–long enough to have repotted several times in successively roomier pots.

This is the first time it’s bloomed.

We dropped by Norfolk’s Gardens by the Sea for a while on Saturday. The temperature got higher than we expected, so the highlight of our visit ended up being the ice cream cones from the cafeteria . . . .

A Plague of Brocusts 0

"Lime" scooters left carelessly about the parking lot of a local shopping center.

And this was just a few of the two-wheeled hazards we saw on the two mile trip to the grocery store. There were others in that same parking lot, as well as some left in the middle of a sidewalk in front of the local thrift store.
