Poem for Friday and USBG Flowers


Street Lamps in Early Spring
By Gwendolyn Bennett

Night wears a garment
All velvet soft, all violet blue...
And over her face she draws a veil
As shimmering fine as floating dew...
And here and there
In the black of her hair
The subtle hands of Night
Move slowly with their gem-starred light.

After a day of snow on Wednesday, we had gorgeous weather on Thursday! Denise came over, we went to Cava for lunch, we hung out with the cats, we did a couple of Pokemon raids, and we generally enjoyed being out in the sunshine while snow melted off roofs and cars all around us. After she went to visit other friends for dinner, I went to the park and took a muddy but nice walk in the woods!

I don't usually watch The Big Bang Theory, but when I heard that William Shatner, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Smith, and Wil Wheaton were playing DnD in tonight's episode, of course I had to see that. I do always watch The Orville, and this week's was great, though I will be sad if a certain character doesn't see the error of his ways. From the US Botanic Garden last weekend:
