Yucca, the Kudzu of the Underground

After several years of trying to rid our front flower bed of yucca, I have come to the conclusion that this wretched plant should be officially classified as a nuisance. A demonic garden pest that only the most inexperienced of gardeners would ever attempt to cultivate, it should be erradicated from the face of the earth. Seriously. Let's just raze the entire planet six feet deep to ensure that we get all those nasty tubers that spread like a cancer through otherwise good soil.

I would sacrifice every daylily, coneflower, daisy, shrub and bulb, even my precious little blue anemones to be ridded of it for good. Okay, well maybe I wouldn't go that far. But I am not-very-seriously considering transplanting all my other plants and bringing in some heavy equipment.

Passover Moon

Take a look out your window tonight, and if our sky isn't overcast, you'll see a gorgeous full moon. That's the Passover moon, the moon that shone on Jesus while He prayed in Gethsemane. And that same moon becons us to revisit His sacrifice, to partake in the feast in remembrance of Him.

Chag sameach Pesach!

Said Before...Bears Repeating

"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them." -Thomas Jefferson

I know it's been said before, but this quote from one of our Founding Fathers bears repeating, especially in light of the fact that it has now become something of a fulfilled prophecy.

Where are you, Patriots?

“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.” -Samuel Adams, 1776
