Summertime in SoBro, Part VII...

This morning I needed some props for the gladiolas in the bed around the tree in the front yard, as they've started to bend double under the weight of their blooming flowers, so I saddled up the Broad Ripple SUV and headed out, while Roomie headed off for the Indy Hamfest.

My first stop was Good Morning Mama's for breakfast. I ordered the "Papa's" (delicious homemade corned beef hash and eggs) and a side of applewood-smoked bacon. After a leisurely breakfast spent enjoying yummy food and The Great War and Modern Memory, I hopped back on the bike and rode on down the way...

I arrived at the neighborhood garden shop shortly after 0900, but it still hadn't opened, so I turned the bike towards home (enjoying the use of the Monon Trail, since SB292 went into effect last week), but stopping at Locally Grown Gardens for a delicious Fentiman's Ginger Beer.


I wound up getting my garden stakes at $big_box_home_improvement_store, which made me sad. Maybe Habig Garden Center will put their hours on the internets soon...

You need some tiger lilies so the gladiolas will have something to fight.

Actually, Roseholme Cottage has a spectacular crop of day lilies all down the south side of the house and into the back yard...

Looks like a nice ride was had if nothing else got accomplished :-)

The 9/11 truth is out on the internet.
This is the truth: The WTC was destroyed by 3 underground thermo-nuclear explosions. They were detonated by the US government which used this as an excuse to lead the US and its allies into invading Afghanistan and Iraq. All these wars and deaths were based on a lie.

Goebbels: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”

Will you help to tell the truth to the world?

Paul Fussell, v. good. Read his autobiography?

Drang said...

Ah, I see the same troll visited you...

Does Fussel still live around there? ISTR that, in an interview, he said that that fast car thing you have locally is as a religious festival to him, and that he always tears up whenever they play the Hoosier State Anthem there...

Ah...so 9/11 is the reason why you had to visit a big-box store to find garden stakes...

Looks like a very nice morning. One of the things I am still searching hard for since moving 9 months ago is an acceptable breakfast place...there was a really, really good one in Bremerton, and in 9 months I haven't found anything that is closer than 80%.

Loving the So Bro series.

I'm also loving the SoBro Series. Thanks for posting the pictures.

Incidentally, day lilies are easy to transplant and will grow aggressively to fill their space. Excellent ground cover.
