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.


Mystery Flower

Earlier this week I noticed a single green stalk in the bare patch of yard next the driveway. I figured it was a little weedling tree but on closer inspection, it had a thick lily-like stalk, so I let it be. And sure enough, today it bloomed.

It only cost me four mosquito bites to get pictures of it this morning. I reaaaaally hate mosquitoes! In other surprise yard news, the MO noticed that the banana tree we've never quite got around to chopping down is sprouting bananas. They're pretty small yet, but they're there!

Bananas in Montrose?

Pretty cool, huh? Happy botanical day :-)
