242: TinyPosted: May 23, 2011
Tiny is this this week’s WP Weekly Photo Challenge. I had hoped to play around and do something a little creative, but I don’t think I’ll find the time for it this week. So, I’ll start where I am and go with what I’ve got.
A mountain is composed of tiny grains of earth. The ocean is made up of tiny drops of water. Even so, life is but an endless series of little details, actions, speeches, and thoughts. And the consequences whether good or bad of even the least of them are far-reaching.
This next one is bad news…
The beetles are not a good thing. I’m going to have to spend some time out in the asparagus bed hand picking them off. Having finally looked them up, I now have an explanation for some of what has been happening with the asparagus. It seems they can cause the spears to bend in a shepherd’s crook shape. They will also cause problems with next year’s crop so they have to go.
In the good news department, M the Younger (youngest son) and his lovely wife will be here for dinner tonight. This is the first time we’ve seen them since Christmas and I’m really looking forward to it. Their visit is the reason I’m rushing through this post today. (Can you tell I’m in a hurry?)
Weather notes: It’s been raining for most of the day. Strong storms are expected this afternoon. M and I were hoping to get the boats and the dock into the water today (with M the Younger’s help), but I’m not sure that will happen due to the bad weather. We’ll have to wait and see.
Garden notes: The beetles must go! The instructions I read said to hand pick them off the plants and drop them into a bucket of soapy water. I’ll give that a try since I’d rather do that than use a pesticide.
