Hyacinth is my signale

It's 47°F outside, sunny, and very pleasant. All of my hyancinths, planted under the now-flower-free plum tree, are in bloom right now; orange, white, pink, fuschia, Dutch blue. Many of them are the very rare doubles (General Kohler, Chestnut Flower, Madame Sophie, and Hollyhock); my plan is to spend some time belly down staring at them because they're just that cool. I plant freakish flowers because they make me happy.

I also see that the Orange Favorites I planted near them are all in bloom - it's quite cheery. My outdoor plan for today (the real one, not the "gazing at wondrous petals" loony plan) is pruning rosebushes and getting my dahlias potted up so that they'll be ready to go when the tulips are done. Sadly, the flowers I put in the parterre are only about four inches at the highest; when in the world will they even have heads? I'm afraid I may have waited too long to plant them, but ... I guess April is really tulip flowering season, so I shouldn't get panicky for another two weeks or so.

I'm also planning on looking for my diploma for my HSMP today. I see I got a response to my request for a letter from one of my former coworkers, in fact, my boss's boss at the place I was at 98-99 ... this is good! If my luck is good, I may be able to move before the dahlias bloom, though I may drop in on the Puget Sound Dahlia Society sale today just because I can.

shadowdaddy has been asked to put in OT this weekend, so my plan for Sunday night is to see Dirty Little Showtunes at Thumper's with splendid_geryon. I think hearing "I am the very model of a modern homosexual" again is most likely to make my evening droll.
