Thursday arrived last night with a lot of wind with gusts strong enough to move things around my backyard. Yesterday, however, was sparkling sunshine and warm temps. Weather that's perfect for yardwork, and let me tell you, some yardwork was definitely accomplished. I have a Burning Bush in front of my porch, a species that has now been classified as predatory because it spreads through runners, a lot like bamboo. Well, most of it has been removed. All I need to do now is get in there with a shovel (and possibly a pick-ax) to dig up the root system. While I'm at it, I'll be getting rid of the wisteria as well.
And, of course, the great Tina Turner died yesterday. From what I've seen, she had not been in the best of health, having suffered a stroke a few years back. No one should have to go through that just because we can't let them go. As I commented in several blogs yesterday, her presence may be gone, but her voice, her music, and her image remain for generations to come.
Then there was also this little nugget.
