CROWN CANDY
A ST. LOUIS TRADITION

Since 1913,
the original family,
and St. Louis landmark.

Ice cream,
 handmade chocolates, and 
the best BLTs ever.

(Get there early, or else.)

DAFFODILS ARE UP

Right on schedule.
Always up before April.

Brightening up garden beds
with yellow trumpets.

TILLING TIME

Almost time to plant.

Future home of home grown
tomatoes, kale, chard, eggplant,
bush beans, peppers, basil, parsley,
cilantro, and giant zinnias.

Yum!

BEAUTY FROM THE EARTH

Rocks, gems, minerals, crystals.

I always make it to these shows.
Learning about the power
of these beauties.

WHITE SYCAMORES,
BLUE SKIES

The exact moment

74th ROGUE UNDERGROUND

Can you believe it?

Rogue Underground Dining
in St. Louis
is almost 10 years old now.

Despite the inevitable publicity
and mystery.

One of the most secret
and private gourmet clubs
remains private and 
extraordinary.

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY

You don't have to be Irish

Green is a great color.

IT'S THE WEEKEND
TO WEAR GREEN

Two parades this weekend,
to celebrate St. Patrick's Day.

A big one
in downtown St. Louis
today.

And a fun one
in "dog town" tomorrow,
the actual date for St. Patty's Day.

Either way,
have fun.
And please don't drink
and drive.

STRANGE WEATHER

First time I ever heard
the weather forecasters
predict "bomb clouds"
for early March.

Such extreme weather,
such powerful storms.
While it was 70˚ today.

MEET MY NEW
MEYER LEMON TREE

Brand new from the nursery.

Fact is, my 5 year old specimen
didn't make it through the winter.

Didn't like the peat moss soil 
I had her planted in.
I drowned her -- too much water.

So . . .
6 months from now,
I shall show the fat, juicy
Meyer lemons she gives,
before I move her back inside.

Waffle House.
Always open.

Friendly smiling server.
Freshly brewed coffee,
bottomless mug.

And perfect waffles,
Of course!

UNLIKELY ROOM MATES

At Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary,

If they can get along,
why can't we?

Pure love!

THE WOODS ARE ALIVE

Our melting snows, and rain

Have helped bring the season's

ANOTHER BRICK IN THE ROAD

19th century cobble-stone roads,
like this one in old-town St. Charles, Mo
are worth a second look.
And definitely worth saving.

For starters, they survive the years.
And hold some surprises,
worth a closer inspection.

Like this one!

(So beautiful.)
