Glorious! I bet they smell wonderful.
Gosh, it's so green there. I see what looks like a sprinkler? But still, it is so green. *sigh*. I bet you can walk barefoot in the grass and not get feet full of stickers.

You know, they don't have much fragrance at all, but I think they are still my favorite flower.
The yard is so green because Jim is such a good "groundskeeper". //files.jcink.net/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif Yes, that's a sprinkler. //files.jcink.net/html/emoticons/smile.gif
ACK! I recall those horrid sandspurs! https://s20.postimg.cc/bn0dn3hel/Gaaah.gif

We do have "cheatgrass" and other "hitchhiker" sticky things that cling to the dog & your shoes & sox; but I don't think they're nearly as painful as those sandspurs.

Love it! They almost look like they belong in a wedding photo session, they're so gorgeous!

Early people pounded yucca root for a soap.

Yucca is pretty amazing when it is in bloom

I see why it was "early people" that made soap & shampoo from yucca; that's LOTSA work!

I put these things out in case Armageddon happens and somebody here survives.

I think Armageddon would be bad enough, but to have to go through it dirty with stringy hair is just beyond the pale. https://s20.postimg.cc/ufc8qkb71/eek7.gif

I mean think of it - NO DEODORANT! https://s20.postimg.cc/7149eoba5/eek4.gif

I know, right?! Well, as Skooks posted at the old place, rubbing alcohol is an inexpensive way to deodorize (though, at least for me, it works best if your pits are clean to start with, like right after a shower //files.jcink.net/html/emoticons/laugh.gif ).

Still haven't found a good natural alternative. I hate to say it, but swipe of Secret every 2-3 days does the trick for me. I figure it's better than every day (?) And on days it doesn't matter, I just grab the alcohol.

Little green apples! Look so sweet! Can you eat them or do they need to ripen further?

Those are common red-delicious; they are lookin' good, but need more time to mature, gain sugar & "color up". //files.jcink.net/html/emoticons/smile.gif

Get to the market, though; the fresh Ranier cherries are in, but probably won't last long!

Just ate a bunch of the Ranier cherries this weekend! They weren't as sweet as I was hoping (Costco), but still very good.
