Lunchtime Poll: Flower Power

Yesterday I went to a flower show at a local grocery store/garden center so I could pretend it was spring for a little while. (It might have been easier to pretend if I hadn’t gone down to look at the frozen Hudson River first.)

What flowers are you looking forward to the most? I’m a bluebonnet girl through and through. Of course, they don’t grow wild in upstate NY, but I’ll pick up some seeds once it thaws out in a couple months. In the meantime, I’m making an afghan using colors inspired by a field of bluebonnets, which has the advantage of being super warm as I work with in my lap!

Where’s the fucking water???

She once read large swaths of "Why Evolution is True" and a geology book aloud to her infant daughter, in the hopes of a) instilling a love of science in her from a very young age and b) boring her to sleep. After escaping the wilds of Waco, Texas and spending the next decade in NYC, she currently lives in upstate New York, where she misses being able to get decent pizza and Chinese takeout delivered to her house. She lost on Jeopardy.

  1. I like the waves of different wild flowers that pop up around here. In particular, my backyard gets a bunch of wild African violets that I just adore. In the fall there’s a field of Indian paintbrush that goes for miles and is super pretty.
