More signs of spring…
Hyacinth… they smell so incredibly good.
And, from the vegetable garden, asparagus!… not quite a meal.
The beginning of that historic rhubarb.
I think I’ve found a new purpose for the rhubarb, I read where the leaves, when boiled in water then strained and using the remaining liquid sprayed onto the soil, make a great deterrent to powdery mildew. I’ll try anything, really.
* I changed the title of my blog; growing up, my Mom always called me Rebecca the Housewrecka most likely based on the state of my bedroom. It’s more fitting and fun than the previous, Musings and Minutiae. According to the Urban Dictionary, which for sure wasn’t around when I was a kid, a housewrecker is a violent house party usually resulting in a visit from the cops and thousands of dollars worth of damage because of an unbelievable amount of alcohol consumed. These events usually take place on a weekend when the host’s parents are away. It may be planned, or merely the consequence of spontaneous actions influenced by too much alcohol. I may or may not have attended 1 or 2 of these in the distant past. (;
