Something Pithy Here

"Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop." -- The King of Hearts

I'm an adopted Texan. As they say, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!" I post pictures and opinions as suits my mood, mostly because I can. Hooray Internet! 

So far I have three blogs here. By the Way is the oldest. I started it in 2003. I lost a couple of years to Vox because I was too lazy to bother to export when they shut down. I consider it an exercise in accepting impermanence. When I followed my husband to Singapore for his first expat assignment, I started (T)expatriate: A Southern Girl in Singapore. That covers 2010 and 2011, give or take. Next came Oslo, and (T)expat 2: Norwegian Boogaloo,  in 2012. Now I'm back home, and back on By the Way.

Pix live on Flickr. I toss links out on Twitter when I feel like it. I'm still not sure what to do with G+ but I kinda like it.

 

Magic Mom

We have these crazy big plants growing on the side of our lot next to the carport. We keep them because they're prettier than the neighbor's backyard, but they do tend to get out of hand. Anyhow, we're used to them and don't really notice them much. But when Mom and Dad were here, Mom wondered if they ever flowered. Huh? Make flowers? No, I don't think so....

Well, today the MO comes in and says, "Get your camera and come see this," and sure enough, flowers. Tons of them. Under the carport! I'm telling you my mom has the greenest thumb ever! Now I wish she'd asked about all our other plants!

it might be ginger

it sure is pretty
