So I recently found out that there is a beach less than an hour from my city, and that one of my sisters has been to it. I asked my other sister if she wanted to go before it got cold, since neither of us had been, and she gave an emphatic yes, but when I tried to schedule it she said she was very busy with work lately and it would be hard to find a day.

A couple days ago she posted pics on facebook of her and her bf and daughter at the very same beach I wanted to go to with her. She didn’t call me or text me or let me know she was going, she didn’t even care if I saw the pictures, she just went without me and is acting like she did nothing.

That’s fine. Whatever. I really should have known better than to even try where my family is concerned.

Guess I won’t get to go to the beach until next year.

This Tree Is Growing 40 Different Kinds Of Fruit At Once
This single (and quite colorfully blossoming) tree grows 40 different varieties of peaches, plums, apricots, nectarines, cherries, and even almonds — but just how does it do it?
It does it through the process of chip grafting. After sculptor Sam Van Aken bought a failing orchard in upstate New York full of hundreds of different fruit trees, he began the pain-staking process of grafting several of the different varieties together into one tree. Six years later, the result is this 40-fruit bearing tree, which includes some heirloom varieties that are centuries old.

Plant of the Day Saturday 10 May 2014
In this local garden at Wickham Bishops in Essex the lily of the valley, Convallaria majalis proves it has a rhizomatous stem as it follows the gaps in the paving! The plant will grow in semi or full shade and appreciates a moist root run. After flowering there are red berries. So sorry the blog does not do scent as this was amazing and must waft into the house.
I really visited to see the famous 250 foot long wisteria more of that tomorrow…
