Plants, progress and stuff  
I'm quite happy right now. I am home for now and got lots of work done in the garage. I did a garbage run this morning and took a printer that was dead and an old monitor to the dump. That freed up good space in the garage. I cleaned out the shed and put the bikes in there and some of my 2x4's. I think I can definitely get this garage cleaned out for two cars if Chris can help me with some of the heavy stuff. I had fun working and I'm happy when I feel productive. I cleared a path to the shed and washed it down. Though I was killing plants I was happy to be in my backyard working with plants. The yard's majorly neglected and I will work on it once I have time. I think I haven't gardened in two years and want to do something like that again for next year. It's Fall. Oct is coming tomorrow. I can't wait. Pumpkins will start showing up in tents around town. Migratory birds might start to show up. I can't wait for the pelicans to return though they might come in winter. The white pelicans. They're so big.

I got a plant in the mail today. I was thrilled. I haven't ordered plants in forever. Ok you guys remember the trouble I had with the seed order from that guy on Ebay?

Later he whinned to me about the neutral feedback I left. No not sorry and it doesn't affect his perfect score. I won't do business with him again and we are no longer friends. Well I know the place where he got the plant Passiflora rovirosae. I was on the waiting list and I got an email from Grassy Knoll Exotic Plants the other day I was home. I went ahead and ordered it right away. Got it in the mail today and was so fun to unbox a new plant. It's a tiny cutting that doesn't look like anything. I will keep it on the patio so the darn butterflies won't lay eggs on it and kill it. I have a nice collection now of rare passifloras. I must make cuttings of the older ones to protect against possible future loss. As for the seeds I finally got? They didn't even sprout. Total waste of time and money. Doesn't matter. I now have this rare plant. Here's info on it.
Yes the red fruits are what make this interesting.

And then I got a chance today to catch up on comments and talk to my friends here on LJ and DA. Gosh I have been needing that and had fun just spending hours. I need to make time tonight to work on that art piece of Scary Fear. So yes good things.

Oh and I'm really channeling George right now too because I am re-reading my own story Captured and loving it.

Nothing like being home and pottering!

That sounds like a cool new plant. (I love passifloras.)

And I was really digging your George stories, so I'm glad you're revisiting him :)

Yes. Was nice to play with plants again.
Aw I'm glad you like George and have missed him.
