The snow's melted now (we had 8+ inches) and we're back officially to Spring. Both the iris and  tulips are beginning to bloom -- and together, something I can't remember seeing before around here. Usually the iris come later. Does this mean I dare to plant some of the warmer-weather crops, like beans, now? (I'm not stupid enough to try and put in tomatoes yet.) Dare I try?

Pottery Barn has a very interesting video out on quilt history:

And I laughed myself silly at this 'sexy' video:



Are you supposed to be laughing...not sure! (The French-speaking kitten that mews 'oui' is an extra funny touch. She should have said "le mew," like the little darling in Pepe LePew!)
