Every once in a while a story tweaks the old imagination juices. The latest is the November 23, 2012 article seen in ScienceDaily, Electricity from the Marshes, about a fuel cell that extracts electricity from wetland soils.
joenesgarden: Debbie, dogwoods really responded this year and I'll bet your chives are in full bloom by now. Enjoy them!
Scott Weber: Lovely blooms...I think I wait all year for these brief few weeks when I get to smell Lilacs again...Happy Bloom Day!
Marguerite: hahaha gotta love that Irving :) how fantastic that robins are nesting in the rhodo, what a sight that must be to watch.
Debbie: Mmmm...dogwoods seem to be especially abundant this year here, too. I planted some chives last fall so I'm anxious for them to bloom this spring. They're almost there but not quite yet.
Laurrie: I do love May! Your sentry narcissi are beautiful standing guard. And the lilacs all over are great right now.
We got a hard freeze last night, down to 29 F in my garden, colder than surrounding areas. Yikes.
joenesgarden: Marguerite, my dogwood was very close to becoming history. It saved itself this season by blooming more fully than in previous years. I'm beginning to wonder if it knew the saw was in its future and, as a result, it chose self-preservation.
