Screws [Daily Photo #405]



The weather isn't exactly good for actual planting but that doesn't mean that no garden stuff can be done. For example, a pretty flower box from Ikea has recently joined out pots-and-boxes family and needs assembling. ^^ Better than doing nothing and crying about snow in May...

Fanart: Das Muni from The Stars Are Legion


I find it very hard to focus on podcasts without doing something else at the same time, so when I was listening to Kameron Hurley's very cool podcast the other day I felt the need to do something nonverbal. I chose drawing. First I drew three random women who look like they could be from a Hurley novel (I think the podcast filled me with badassery – it's a Kameron Hurley thing, go read her books).

And then I drew Das Muni from her organically-grown space opera The Stars Are Legion. Das Muni is my favourite character in that book! Melted my heart right away. I need more Das Muni in my life! *sobs*

Das Muni: “I brought a snack. It's oozy, yum!”

Penny: “Well, finally you took me for a walk to see snow. Been years!”
I'm sorry… At least you're wearing this new scarf I made!

Of Course It Snowed [Daily Photo #403]


It snowed again today, although not as badly as in the end of April.

Onion Roots [Daily Photo #402]



One of our forgotten onions sprouted a few leaves, so I put it into water (only the lower end!). Now it has long roots and is growing new leaves under a plant light. Yay!

Oh hey, despite snow and cold nights some plants are blooming!

Nature, take a hint, please. No more snow!

More Green, Still No Spring [Daily Photo #392]



Today it snowed, rained and then hailed, but despite this depressive anti-gardening weather we went to buy seeds, bulbs, ground and other stuff. Hopefully there will be… a warm summer one day? Haha…

Pruning [Daily Photo #391]



My husband pruned aronia and hydrangea the other day, and I saved a few branches and put them in water. Now they are happily unfolding beautiful baby leaves indoors!
