Watching it is like finding money in the pocket of a coat that you haven’t worn in years.
Thanks for holding down the fort. Just returned from a sojourn down the Rio Bravo to Albuquerque (I knew I shoulda taken that left turn...), and not a moment too soon. The four Meconopsis betonicifolia (rare Himalayan Blue Poppies) I planted this spring are beginning to bloom! You may recognize them, or a spiny Tibetan relative named (I kid you not) Meconopsis horridula, from "Batman Begins." Anyway, regular posting will begin shortly. Meanwhile, look at this poppy and try not to let its utter Blueness drive you irretrievably insane...
