Og is trying to set up a Midwest blogmeet. If you're a Midwest blogger or want to head to the Midwest for a big party, click on over here and tell him which weekend is good for you.
He wants 50 votes. Now considering his proximity to the city of Chicago - I must say, go now, vote early and often in the best Chicago tradition.

First we have a couple of beautiful ornamental trees. One is green and one is red, but they are the same type of tree. (Click to enlarge)
Then we have this bush out back, earlier in the spring all of the outside leaves were red while those underneath were green.
Now here are some flowering plants
Next we have some green plants that aren't blooming yet
Then there is the mystery fernlike plant - with a big knob that might be a flower or might be seeds - I have no idea.
And I will leave you with this lovely flowering bush by the front porch.
There is much much more. I had some pictures that didn't turn out well enough to even post. But that's a bit of my garden.
If you like plants I hope you enjoyed the short tour.

I need to do some weeding out in the garden, but I'm putting it off for tomorrow. I'll be posting some pictures of flowers in my garden, because I'm not sure what they are. The people who owned the house before us were true gardeners and they left us with some lovely plants. I've been letting things grow because I don't know what's a weed and what isn't. I'm pulling dandelions and grass and that's about it.
On Monday our town will have Memorial Day Ceremonies at 2 of the local cemeteries, we plan on attending if the weather isn't an outright downpour. Hope everyone else if having a great weekend.

In the meantime why don't you head over to Cool Blue and check out the latest installments of Star Chores. Here and here. After all, you will really want to know the excuse Matt uses to explain that the Captain can not talk to Starfleet Command.
I'm nearly cross-eyed with some file stuff I've been working on for the last couple of days. While writing these few sentences I've flipped back and forth between here and my work screens several times. That's why I didn't post anything yesterday - I'm afraid if I stop concentrating for even a few minutes to think about making a post - I'll forget where I am and have to redo hours of work. (it has happened before) For some reason commenting on a written post doesn't have the same effect - I know it's weird.
So... Celebration to follow when all file work is complete.

He wants his readers to tell him what he should do for his birthday. There is a list of rules (most importantly nothing that might cause his early demise) and the winner will receive a prize.
I'm not very good at thinking up stuff like that, but if you have a devious mind and can think of something within his set of rules - go for it.
BTW - if you've not been to Grau's place before I will issue a language alert. Depending on your work place - it may not be safe for work browsing. So, if you have to worry about that kind of thing - hit him up when you get home.

Being a mom is the toughest thing you'll ever do and most of us try our very best, but always have the feeling that we really do suck at this particular job. I know I do.
At least for today, relax and enjoy the day. If you're raising kids, you've earned it.
