After two weeks of legitimate winter, I’m ready for spring. Hasty, yes. But it’s slippery out. Here are a couple pictures around the old homestead taken during the spring in years past.
Here’s something new I learned today. Chinese lantern is in the same genus as tomatillos (Physalis), a fact I should not have found as surprising as I did given that they share such similar seed covers, and probably other traits I hadn’t noticed. On that note, it would be fun to make a floral arrangement with both plants. I will try that this year if I can recover from the profound mental scarring caused by the college plant breeding experiment from hell, which prominently featured tomatillos.
