"Weeds are just flowers growing in the wrong place" - some of the prettiest flowers out there are what some people consider "weeds".

I've also got 29 eggs from Walnut in the incubator on day 8. They had a rough ride getting here, but it looks like I've got some development going, so I'm hoping to get a few from those as well.
Good luck on the hatch - you'll be swimming in chicks!

Better start practicing your haybale forking techniques...
LOVE hollyhocks, my gran had them growing around her house. I grew up surrounded by flowers - the lot next to her house was owned by people that lived across the street, they used the entire lot as a flower garden, it was absolutely beautiful and so much fun to see and learn about all the different kinds of flowers. Nita and Paul (the neighbors) were like another set of grandparents to us kids, especially me, and I spent a lot of time in the garden with them.

Oh, yes, they are WONDERFUL books -- I'm enjoying the tv version too....I know some people get upset when they change things around compared to what happens in the books, but I am not minding it much this time as I like to see where they might take the story - especially since George RR Martin is STILL leaving us hanging as far as getting another book out. They are BIG books, but they read so fast because you get caught up in the story - though there was one that really seemed more like a chore than a pleasure to get through. I do enjoy watching the things that do follow the books because DH has never read them so it's kind of nice to know things he doesn't know and watch his face when they happen. I like how the good characters can turn out bad and the bad characters can end up being redeemed, or at least having moments of redemption.....or you find yourself feeling sympathy for people you never thought you could care about.
