I am not sure I should be complaining about MTM. After all, this month's part is quick. The light is at the end of the tunnel. I guess I just feel like I have been running the Boston Marathon since last October - or rather, since February when the parts got huge, and now I am just reaching the top of "Heartbreak Hill" and I am winded! LOL! Anyhow... I got the second corner done tonight. This one is odd... the bottom of the tree runs right into the brown barn that is part of the town. I think that is a bit unlike Martina to throw off her symmetry in that way. The bottom right corner will run into the same issue, so the left side will fill properly, and the right side will show only part of the tree roots. Hmmmph. Still looks good, though.
I thought today I would show you my purple Rose of Sharon. I bought this on ebay back in 2001 when we moved into our house. As is typical with ebay plant purchases, it was just a bit of a twig then. It refused to bloom until now, even though it started to grow very large. What a nice sight it was this week to start to see the lovely purple blooms! I was just about ready to move it and see if it would be happier somewhere else in the garden. I am glad now that I did not make an impulsive move, because we like where it is now.

PS - Oh gosh - what Red Sox player will get hurt tomorrow? Tonight it was Doug Mirabelli... a few days ago, Jason Varitek... a few days before that, Trot Nixon. Oh, that is not good!
