The wild West Texas wind got my jonquils this year. Only a few had bloomed before the rain and then the bad winds. It just tattered the blooms into pieces. But my flags (some call them irises) might get a chance to bloom this year if both cold snaps and wind will kindly stay away.
I'm on a pickle diet. I eat pickles a lot, when actually I'd rather be delving into the bags of cheap Easter candy. I used to eat tons of sour pickles and I was skinny as a rail. With my disposition sour pickles are a must.
Don't throw out pickle juice. Put tender spears of asparagas in it (donkey frens, REMOVE the asparagus from the can, drain, then place in a glass container and pour the pickle juice over it) and let it pickle for a few days in the refrigerator. Then take out, drain, and roll up the asparagus in thin slices of ham or turkey that's been spread with cream cheese. If yr a vegetarian try it rolled up with really thin slices of baby Swiss cheese and the cream cheese.
