Columbines






The columbines are all over my garden.  They self seed and always make a nice addition to any perennial group.  They are developing some very nice varieties of color.  The red one is one I purchased and I do not seem to be getting any crosses with it, although it is producing seedlings of its own color and growing into a larger patch.  The seedlings are easily removed from any unwanted spot.
I have the vegetable garden planted to a few beans, some mesclun, some old radish seed (not sure it will germinate) huge mammoth russian sunflowers, some dill, marigolds, cosmos, calendulas, zinnias, and allysum in a cedar trough that Tara left behind.  I have lupines in 20 little pots... I have no idea what I will do with 20 lupines if they all germinate.  They are not long living plants in my garden now.  Although I once had a gorgeous big clump of the most exquisite fuschia color growing for several years.  I hope to get one that is so beautiful, again.
On Saturday we were to Duncan to Vern's celebration of life.  We have lost one of the most active, knowledgeable, fine members of the old car hobby.  We all learned how to leave our families and friends in a graceful, dignified manner by his example.  We got back to town and took our 1912 Torpedo Roadster Model T out to the regular meeting of hobby cars at the Royal Oak Mall. 
There is a blog I like to go to read occasionally.  Today there is a post about the Bilberger Group that I found interesting. 
That should be Bilderberg

Bilberger Group is an interesting read.

yeah.. sorry about the typo .. should be Bilderberg. Here is a quote from that blog: It is beyond creepy to realize an unelected cabal of global power-mongers meet annually to discuss what will happen to "your" world and "destiny"... under their unwelcome influence in the coming months.
My Patrick has made me aware of them years ago. I have no doubt that there is an elite few people who try to control our global economy. But it looks like "The best laid schemes o' mice an' men/ Gang aft a-gley." (Robert Burns)

They need a dip in the creek with your bar of lye soap. :))) For the uninitiated please click Ken's name and see his blog.
