Ghoulish Garden

I thought I'd share some pictures of my garden. Until this year, the bloom times of these plants were a little later and staggered a bit. This year, with the exception of the Snow Drops and Crocus, they're all blooming at the same time, and really early. By June there will be nothing left in flower except for the annuals. If my garden is any indication, global warming is real.

Snow Drops



Painted Trillium


Virginia Bluebells

Lilies of the Valley

May Apple

Sweet Woodruff

Linnie in the Grass (Found only in Pennsylvania)

Wild Violets


Barbary Hedge

Happy Spring!

Inflatable Zombie!

No, it's not a sex toy for necrophiliacs. A 27-foot tall inflatable David "Flyboy" Emge from the original Dawn of the Dead has been making the rounds in Pittsburgh for this summer's Pittsburgh Roars events. He was tethered in the sculpture garden at the Carnegie Museum of Art for a while and he'll be making other appearances throughout the summer and fall. If you're "the 'burgh," check him out, but don't get too close!

Ain't he cute?
