My house has its own share of early spring wonders. I have violets in the front and back yards, narcissi, and lilies of the valley. Mrs. B used to have the lilies of the valley in her yard, but she gave me a few, and they spread like weeds. We also have a wild flower that I first remember seeing at the Benicia Capitol Museum. The plant looks like clover, but sends up long stalks with clusters of yellow flowers. I always wanted some, and finally found some and put a few in the back yard, only to have them also spread like weeds. As the spring advances, the fruit trees bloom along with the grape hyacinths. I love spring, even though I sneeze through most of it.
I am trying to sew a little every day, and this week I am making another long-sleeved shirt in aqua with little hands and trowels on it. Sounds stupid, looks good.
Now I am back from Jason's and wanted to put this down while it is fresh in my mind. Remember William Hung from American Idol? He was the engineering student who hadn't "had any professional training", and who was terrible but charmingly so. He goes to Berkeley, and Joel ran into him today. He started laughing when he saw him, and William said "Oh, you recognize me!" Apparently, Joel says, William is having his 15 minutes of fame, and has given a little concert and has thousands of people voting to have him called back on the show. I hope he is having lots of fun with it all. Joel says he has a website that's pretty funny, so I am going to go look for it now.
