Poppies, orange blossoms, and sites



I had the best of intentions to show you some atc's I've received recently, but as per usual - I forgot to charge the camera. Instead I give you some more flowers from our garden. The mock orange blossoms smell so heavenly - I love them. The other picture is a close-up of another of the poppies we have. Tomorrow I hope to take a photo of the catalpa tree which is in full glorious bloom. Jack started the tree from a seed several years ago and he's quite proud of it.
I stumbled upon a very interesting site and thought I would share it with you. http://tipnut.com has a whole lot of information on a whole lot of subjects and is well worth checking out.
Another one I found is http://unclutterer.com Anyone who knows me is well aware of my compulsive reading of books about organization. I find them fascinating for some weird reason. I almost hate to admit it!! Wonder if there's a 12-Step program for my disease?
While I'm on the subject of clutter - there's a really good book I just finished reading and I highly recommend it if you feel you need some organization. 'It's All Too Much - An Easy Pan for Living a Richer Life With Less Stuff' by Peter Walsh. He is the host of the show on TLC called 'Clean Sweep'. The book is quite humorous and gives you great techniques that are simple to execute.
