Fact: I am always delighted when “azalea” is used in crossword puzzles.

I’m pleased every time I know the name of some member of the plant kingdom, and surprised to find that a lot of people don’t know (or just don’t care about?!) very many plant names. This is our world, we should know the names of the things that surround us. That said, I often question whether I’m getting azaleas and rhododendrons mixed up. Now I’ve learned why – they’re related! Thanks, McC!

A Riot of Freckles


Well, I’ve been all over the place this past week and a half, and my body responded with “F YOU!” about halfway through. I’m sick, up against deadlines, and I’ve been neglecting all things creative. I didn’t manage a single postcard from Denver, and only one from Atlanta (Grandma wins), but I still haven’t even posted all the ones I sent from my prior trip; it’s the posting here that’s the problem really, not the posting cards. Needs improvement.

I did come home with a few more freckles than I started with, and I have been dreaming of a weekend of doing nothing on a beach, so this postcard from McC is apropos. Back to work with me, now. Sigh.
