Do I have anything important to say?

…probably not, but that’s never stopped me before 🙂

An old blogger friend (Maggi at Just Add Glitter and Stir) turned up today…was happy to discover she’s still blogging.

how I’ve been using my time productively (over the past 3 months):

tried to grow an avocado tree from a seed, managed a root but never anything else

back yard mushroom, I discovered from a friend, with a scientific mind, that trees use mushrooms (the root system) to communicate…with each other…amazing

I’ve had a request to show an update on the native landscaping in the front yard…so I’ll try to get a photo of that today

AND

maybe some photos of the artwork I’ve done lately
