Sunday so far

I tried to go to sleep at 2:00 a.m., and couldn't get to sleep.  I tried again at 3:00 a.m., and got to sleep then.  I woke at 11:00 a.m.  I should have gotten up at 10:00 a.m.

I went out to see the flowers.  I sprayed Deer-Off on the daylilies, tiger lilies, jasmines, and the smaller roses.  I picked a couple of basil leaves and had them with tomatoes, garlic, and Romano(?) cheese.

Dad planted the impatiens, red columbines, iris cristata and witch hazel.  I watered them, and then sprayed them with Deer-Off.  It looked like something was digging around or eating the pinks, so I sprayed them, too.  The pink lily-of-the-valley started blooming.  I picked a stem of that.  The white lily-of-the-valley is blooming, too.  The sweet woodruff is blooming.  I think something was eating the blossoms off the 'Pocahontus' lilac, but it has a couple of panicles(?) of bloom under some leaves.  The azaleas are blooming.  I got pictures of them.  The dogwoods are blooming.  It doesn't look like the portulaca took too well to yesterday's rainstorm.  The red-flowered zonal geraniums in the raised bed still looked good.

I think most of the plants I got from Logee's, except for the blueberry, are going in the raised bed or in pots.  That will be much easier than planting them in the ground.

Much later: I talked with A. for an hour and a half.  It's so refreshing to talk with someone who believes in science, which I don't get a lot of around here.

I finished Under the Rushes.  TallCR really liked it.  I thought it was good, but there were some character types and tropes I had seen before.


The transgendered woman character is killed off, as transgendered women characters often are.  There is a disproportionately high murder rate of transgendered women of color, but it's something of a cliche that it happens in books, too, for effect.  Taern is a prostitute with a heart of gold.  That's a stock character in fiction.  He had his own personality, but I've seen that character type used many times before.
