Garden Pics from Casa Hyphen

By Chrissy the Hyphenated

I’m trying to organize, back up and clean off my hard drive in anticipation of getting my new computer.  I just processed these pics Dearest took out in our yard in June. They’re out of season, but they were so nice, I want to share anyway.

Chives

The peonies were my dad’s. I transplanted them to my garden in memory of him.

I’m thinking this last one would be a good candidate for our PoliNators border imagery, but maybe the bee is too small?

Bee visits wild rose bush

There will be NO “big picture” pictures of our little patch of God’s Green Earth. IMHO, a garden is like a dance; it doesn’t really exist except when someone is doing it. Sadly, it’s been a long time since anyone around here had time or energy for more than mowing the grass and shoveling the snow. IOW, my gardens look like crap and I’m ashamed of them! Sigh.

The Democrat Double Standard

This is why I no longer believe in bipartisanship. The current Democratic leadership is made up of hypocrites and bullies. They say they want everyone to play by the same rules and be civil to one another. Then they stab us in the back.

I mean that “go away” in the nicest possible terms – not physically harmed in any way, just voted out of office. What he could do with another 4 years haunts my nightmares. But what he would mean to this country as a martyred Camelot hero curdles my blood.

TEA PARTY’S NEWEST TARGET:DEBT ‘SUPER COMMITTEE.’

I don’t know how much of this is true,but I heard on the radio:

Committee will have 6 members from each party

Obama will be the tie-breaking vote

Bills coming out of this committe go straight to the floor

No amendments,no filibusters,simple majority votes rule

No hearings by committees or subcommittees

Putting the fate of our nation in the hands of 13 people smacks of dictatorship

I don’t know how much of this is true–you’d think their intentions would have leaked out by now

One thing is sure:the Republicans will get rolled–we always hope for a different outcome,but it will never happen
