Bees and Things and Flowers

Author: Tafari, Tuesday, March 20th, 2007 at 10:58 PM MindspillIt’s officially springtime (well all damn most), so this means that my spring bulbs are ready to awaken from their frozen slumber. I am a big perennial gardener & my favorite time of the year is spring, which is when I get to smell the sweet perfume of hyacinths surrounding my home. I also get excited about my sunny daffodils that command my full attention as they shine as bright as the afternoon sun.

Springtime also means that I need to prepare to clean out the fall & winter debris that has collected in my gardens over the past few months & this is never too fun but now that Olivia & Sade are older I recruit them to assist me and work the hell out of them.

For the last 2 years I have been lucky enough to have a family of robins make the nest along my cedar fence so I am hoping that they again return. I love looking at the brightly colored eggs & awaiting the arrival of the chicks & then enjoying them for the summer as they hang around the backyard eating grubs that try to destroy my lawn.

The spring also means that this bitch ass family of rabbits will be back out to eat my precious lilies again before they even have a chance to bud. One of these years I am going to kill cook & eat them (not really, I hate rabbit but I might kill them).

To celebrate all that I am looking forward to over the next few months, tomorrow, I am taking the day off work, getting my locks tightened & if I can still get a ticket; I will be at the Angel Bofill concert downtown Detroit.

One thing I hate I mean don’t like about spring is Easter, Oh how I dread the thought of spending money on Easter dresses for the girls, Easter basket grass all over the fucking floor for months (you can never get rid of it all). I also dread the faux fashion, childrens play & the long drawn out sermon @ church. Mindspill

    Ok. 1….that sign is insane and 2. Bunnies are adorable! (I also don’t have any flowers…)

    Oh how happy I am to be old enough to dress my damn self…I think my Mom & Grandma miss the pre-memorial day debut of my white patent leater mary janes (gag) and whatever pink (double gag) frilly dress they were gonna put me into. Now to destroy the pictures… :)

    When I see dead rabbits (road kill) on the street near my home, I pray it was one from my back yard. Rabbits are a gardeners worst nightmare in real life. LOL

    My girls get them white MJ’s every year & no matter what people say now, white before Memorial Day is a major Faux Pas but Suite Suzy doesn’t care because it is cute LOL.

    Easter pics from back in the day are always funny!!! You should post one to celebrate spring!!!

    Okay, what is up with the poster? That is some kind of advertising.

    I am happy spring is here. I also live in Alabama so therefore I know that there will only be about a month of really comfortable weather before the sun parks its big hot ass right over Montgomery and burns us all to smithereens. Other than that I LOVE spring.

    I think I was lucky growing up. We never had to wear the white MJs, but we did have those black patent leather ones that you could see your face in. The thing I hated most about Eater is that when my mother would do my hair in one hundred ponytails with bows and barrettes she would make me go to sleep with a pair of panties on my head so I would not mess it up. No Lie. That was the worst.
