Pinned toot

Re food posts/recipes, I post unCWed toots, as I am on a cooking instance!

However, I am also trying to remember to write a separate CWed post that links back for recipes, for people who would prefer to see/boost food CWed.

I'm also trying to remember to add the hashtags and , so that you can mute these if you don't want them in your timeline at all.

Front garden: Spring 2020 overview, in pictures

Lots of pics on the blog. The photos posted here are the before (when we moved in, Nov 2017) and May 2020, to give you an idea of how it's changed.

Growing ? It's time to check if you have any garlic scapes, because if you don't take them off, you'll end up with small bulbs in the ground.

Short blogpost with detailed pictures on what to do.

I realise I've never stated this clearly, so I will now. Please call me out/let me know, if I've said or inferred anything that is racist, ableist, anti-trans etc. I'm trying really hard to unlearn white supremacy, stop using ableist language etc, but I'm going to make mistakes. I'd rather know, so I can change that language/behaviour.

I've seen a bit of chat about #a11y / #Accessibility this week. Does anyone know if there's a way to stop the Mastodon interface auto-completing hashtags in all lower case? Totally kills any attempt at PascalCase for better screen reader parsing.

It's a beautiful Spring day and the new leaves on Acer palmatum 'Sango-kaku' are looking fantastic against the blue sky.

lunch idea request 

What are your favourite packed lunch finger foods that are not sandwiches?

Assume I don't have access to heating facilities either.

“Rage Against the Machine never specified what type of machine they were furious with but I reckon it was probably a printer.”

In general, the garden is looking beautiful with all the new leaves, and the white blossoms on the fruit trees.

Ok, made a GoFundMe for Oreo. I set it at $1,000 in case she needs surgery. She definitely needs a wheelchair. I can't keep carrying her outside (she weighs 60lbs) as it triggers my tachy. If you all could share, that would be helpful.

Weed/Wildflower Wednesday

There is that short spring span
In the works of nature's plan,
When flowers and leaves share growth,
As maple twigs bear them both.

Norway maple (Acer platanoides), a tree which is classified as an invasive species, a weed, in other words. It was originally planted as an imported ornamental, but it competes against the native sugar maple among others.

#florespondence a magnolia tree! I love them! and the other pic shows a pond in the Tiergarten park where I went today to play #dailypingpong - we stopped by it and sat in the sun.

sadly a lot of covid denialists populated the park too, I had forgotten that they were doing one of their absurd demos today.

Remembering the time back in 2012 when I took a day off work and found a fox sleeping in the garden

I managed a recording of Bluebird composed by Alexis Ffrench without an interruption. This time there is no @FreyaKitteh to add her special additions to my #piano playing.

Going through things at my mother's house, she can no longer appreciate her garden. But honestly it needs to be seen. #florespondence
