still spring

it's still spring!

my tomato is already flowering!

i went uptown and saw the darger exhibit at the american folk art museum. even though his paintings are truly divinely inspired, i was most impressed by the manually typed manuscript of The Story of the Vivian Girls, in what is Known as the Realms of the Unreal, of the Glandeco-Angelinnian War Storm, Caused by the Child Slave Rebellion. perfect and maniacal. even more impressive to me though was robyn o'neil, whom i'd never heard of. huge, evocative, extremely detailed pencil drawings. they can't really even be called drawings because of the range of effects she manages with the graphite. one of those things you can only appreciate in person, so go if you can.

they wouldn't let me take pictures in there, so i took a picture of this nearby. she's watering.

i guerrilla-gardened today on my way to the bookstore. i've decided to carry grass seed around with me and sprinkle it in all the unoccupied dirt i encounter. i have a big lawn-sized bag left over from a friend's garden i helped with last year. it sprouts really quickly. this is the "lawn" i sowed last week.

plus, i made a blouse out of an old sheet with a free downloaded pattern.

Ah, Darger! I'm a fan. I think you already knew that. Would love to see those Robyn O'Neils in person.

I'm also a fan of you. Speaking of you---happy very belated birthday, sugarplum!
