Please Don't Eat the Daisies

A coworker specified the Double Scoop Cranberry or Pow Wow Wild Berry Coneflower for her latest landscape design.  As I was searching our nurseries for pricing, I came across several other Coneflower cultivars named after foods:  Tomato Soup, Cranberry Cupcake, Hot Papaya, Now Cheesier, Purple Merlot, Raspberry Tart, Supreme Cantaloupe, and Vanilla Cupcake.  (I'm guessing the same breeder developed all of them.)  I've stopped thinking about work and started thinking about dinner (and dessert).

Failure to Suspend Disbelief

As if I'm going to believe a telemarketer with an East Indian accent when he tells me his name is "Mark Smith".

Don't call us. We'll call you.

Aside from me not blogging in practically forever, you'll not hear from me by phone.  I went to purchase new minutes for my mobile phone last night, and the store didn't have any phone cards in my desired denomination (nor any lesser denominations that could add up to what I need).  Therefore, my phone is a nice paperweight until I can buy more minutes.  If you really want to call me, you'll have to use my mom's landline.
