Beauty and the terror...

I thought I'd inject a bit of color into this somewhat overcast day. Here's a view of the side garden and close up of some of the flowers. I was derailed from taking photographs when I saw the largest wasp I've ever seen in my life. I thought it best to come indoors since it appeared hell bent on trying to land on me.
I've read to page 160 of Moby-Dick and loving it even more because Melville has finally introduced Captain Ahab. I might have read more, but had visitors over the weekend and I weeded part of the vegetable patch so that I can do some Spring planting. This is the first time in two decades I've lived in a place with a garden, so it's a real novelty.
