Monet's garden in May. Giverny, France
I am working on my wee messy yard today. Would love to have a garden like this some day:) Wild, flowering, abundant and tangled.

This swine flu news is bothering me. If the New York students are confirmed, we will be in for a bumpy ride. What really gets me is the description of the virus. This swine flu contains DNA from avian, swine and human viruses, including elements from European and Asian swine viruses, the CDC has said. Almost sounds engineered:((

I'm going to bury myself in Spring activities. Also might even get my car washed. H is helping with a charity car wash today. Perfect day for it!

That garden is awesome. I dream of a flowering yard one day. That swine flu thing is crazy! Don't really understand how all of that strange stuff comes about. Let's keep our fingers crossed that it comes and goes quickly.
