I read several ways to tell if a watermelon is ripe. One said that if there’s a yellow spot underneath, it may be ready. This one had a yellow spot so I cut it open.
It was on it’s way, but nowhere near ready. Tasted like a raw potato. 😦
A few weeks ago a friend on a dog message board I visit pointed all of us to this site call lolcats. The site is a compilation of photos of cats (and a few dogs, birds, rabbits, otters and ferrets, but mostly cats) with captions.
The ‘cats’ have their own language and several running gags and, I hate to admit it, they’re freakin’ hilarious.
I prefer the blog version of the site: I can haz cheeseburger
The blog breaks it down into categories so that you can skip to your own favorite running gag.
Here are a few of my favorites:
This is a picture of some very pretty flowers that grow on the side of our garage. They bloom every July. The magenta colored ones are always first (far left in the picture) and then the pale pink ones.
They were planted there years before we moved here so I have no idea what they are. I really like them and think they would look good on the north side of our house where we get a lot of sun but there is nothing there but a blah blank wall.
So, all of you garden gurus, do you know what these are? Please leave a comment if you do, thanks! If you need a closer look, click on the picture. It will take you to the gallery where you can blow it up to a very big size.
