Day 343: Bradford Pear Tree

image

I mentioned I would post more pictures of things blooming on the farm. I was hesitant to post these pictures of the Bradford pear trees they are very silly trees.

The blossoms smell off (like cat urine) and the way this tree branches off makes it very suseptable to damange in storms.

My horticulturist friend explained to me that a tree with a wide angle between trunk and branch is very strong. Bradford pears have a small angle between the two so as the branch continues to grow and get heavier it is more and more likely to break off.

There was much more to his rant, which included invasives, non-fruiting ornamentals, blossom smell, a handful of much better landscaping options and so on.
Look here, you actually learned real information on my blog.

Eat the spring-time!!
Ah, there now. I brought the IQ back down to entertaining and away from informational.

Day 204: Candy Toes

image

This is my final post on candy corn toenails for a while. Especially since we are almost out of the candy corn season. Maybe I should do Indian corn toes? Hrmmm

I tried a different method this time and I think I like it better. So this what I recommend.

Paint your whole nail yellow. Allow to completely dry then paint orange allowing enough yellow to show. Allow to dry then paint white tips.

The two hard aspects of doing it this way is 1) visualizing how much to paint to allow even amounts of color and 2) allow things to totally dry.

I will have to find another easy winter or Christmas type style to do for the next few months.
Pinterest, don’t fail me now!

Day 180: Cute Printz (nsfw)

      WATERMELONS!!

You ever go shopping and get the most adorable pair of undies?
Picture below is possibly NSFW.

With the exception of your best girlfriends and your hubster—no one gets to see them.

Yes, I am that kind of sharer.
My watermelon panties go well with my doughnuts and cupcake panties.
I love food, even on my underwear.

The only reason to own plain white panties is if there is a possibility to see through your dress or pants (white scrubs are bad about this).

I also have a bra with neon yellow and gray stripes. Just in case I decide to clean any roadsides in my sports bra. (There’s a mental picture for you)….
