PRETTY PURPLES

I was smart; I stopped by Sularpsfarmen yesterday on the way home from work to buy pansies because I knew the weather forecast for the weekend was for nice weather and I knew Flyinge Nursery and Sularpsfarmen would be PACKED today and tomorrow. We've had several days of unbelievably gorgeous weather: 72 and sunny. California weather!

One of the brothers helped me by carrying two bags of dirt to my car and I filled and purchased 2 flats full of pansies to boot. 24 pansies to a flat. I figured that ought to be plenty for my pots, right?

Wrong.

I had to go buy ANOTHER flat today because I used up the first two and still had four pots left to fill. So now, I have 12 pots full of the prettiest pansies; mostly purple-and, but some just purple and some red and some yellow. The purple-and ones are purple-and-white, purple-and-yellow and purple-and-orange. SO pretty!







72 pansies is a lot of pansies. I had to empty all the pots and throw away last year's accumulated old dirt and roots and dead plants first, and then fill them with new dirt and put in the pansies and fill around the edges. Oy my aching back! Actually, my shoulder is really hurting now, so I will have to take a muscle relaxer at some point this evening, I bet.

I have also done three loads of laundry, vacuumed, talked to my mom and been a study aide for Martin. He has two big tests coming up on Monday and Tuesday, and one of them is Biology, and he apparently has to memorize the entire textbook and then repeat it to me to be sure it's stuck. So ask me anything you like about peptides and lipids and hydrophobic molecules.

Mörhippan was here purring her little face off and shedding at a terrific rate. I can actually see hairs flying off her into the air even when no one is touching her; but I just opened the window and she leaped right out with a bound. It's too nice to be inside. Martin and I are going for a walk in just a minute, as soon as I fold the last load and he finishes the chapter he's currently in. He is working on a study schedule of one hour on, 20 minutes off, and has been all day: dedicated!
