It snowed on my flowers this morning.

Meade said...

S'now on Syno's flow's.

Pogo said...

I am curious.

Shouting Thomas said...

Wow, your garden is flowering early!

I'll bet Meade is a genius in the garden.

I'll be starting my vegetable garden next weekend. You'd be surprised how much I can pump out of my garden, which is at about 800 feet elevation.

Myrna trucked in a ton of topsoil and built two foot high raised beds. I'll have fresh lettuce in about six weeks.

Chip Ahoy said...

What lens is that?

chickelit said...

Meade you old Leitch--that's pretty mellow!

Bumble bee bait.

Michael K said...

Nice flower !

chickelit said...

@Pogo: So which is it?

wv: "unionfuc" Honest to blog it said that. Don't tell garage.

deborah said...

Reminds me of a poppy...what is it?

(Lovely pic with the sun lighting the one petal.)

windbag said...

Rhododendron are blooming here in the South. Might go searching for some photo ops in the next couple of days.

vza said...

Lovely photo. I agree Deborah. Looks like a poppy.

WestVirginiaRebel said...

Speaking of the South, I hope people down there are ready if/when the Mississippi floods.

Meanwhile, I am trying to stay Mellow, quite rightly...

edutcher said...

...And a sight like that warmed the cockles of my heart.

If things look that good where you are, the warm weather must be at hand.

Rialby said...

Uhh - it's 10:00 on the East Coast and Obama is making a public statement. This doesn't bode well...

peter hoh said...

Just announced that Obama is giving a talk in about 20 minutes.

No topic announced.

Seems unusual.

Mark said...

Yellow.

peter hoh said...

Rialby, I heard the talk starts at 10:30 eastern time. Did you hear different?

Rialby said...

No, that's what I heard too.

Geraldo is suggesting it's to say we killed Quadaffi.

Btw, when is Obama going to make it over to Congress to let them know why we're in a shooting war in North Africa.

Rialby said...

And if we have... what the fuck fills that vacuum now? I hope Obama has a plan.

peter hoh said...

Yeah, I think that's overdue.

Rialby said...

Oh, that's right. We do have a plan.

Let the "largely secular" Muslim Brotherhood take over!

peter hoh said...

It's hard to imagine what other news would be worth such an announcement -- combined with the suddenness of the announcement, and the fact that there doesn't seem to be other buzz out there.
What are the options -- Biden had a stroke, we caught bin Laden?

Rialby said...

One more point - so, from 2001 to 1/2009, all I ever heard from the left side of the aisle was - if you look sideways at an Arab, anywhere in the world, they have a reason to want to hunt us down and slaughter us in the street. So, what about our attacks on the government of Libya - is that good or bad? Will that galvanize anyone? Who's fault is that? Just want to make sure I have the new rules written down.

Rialby said...

Personally, I think bin Laden has been dead for at least 5-6 years.

They just reported that all intelligence officials have been called to post.

peter hoh said...

I suspect that bin Laden is dead, too. It's been a long time since there have been any new videos of his ramblings.

Lem said...

The queen of england wore yellow to her grandson's wedding only to be derided by the View.

The color yellow is beautifull.

peter hoh said...

couldn't be domestic, if intel officers were called to posts.

peter hoh said...

Unless they just figured out that Biden is a Russian spy.

peter hoh said...

terrorist plot busted?

chickelit said...

Geraldo is suggesting it's to say we killed Quadaffi.

Isn't that guy who said there was money in that safe?

Mark said...

Maybe he'll announce his resignation?

A guy can hope. For change.

peter hoh said...

My local news couple is speculating that it's about bin Laden.

Mark said...

Or maybe he's pulling a Palpatine and dissolving Congress.

wv: "forit" - nope.

peter hoh said...

He's late.

Family gathered.

chickelit said...

Peter is correct per Twitter

Julius said...

live feed

Julius said...

House Intelligence committee aide confirms that Osama Bin Laden is dead. U.S. has the body.

peter hoh said...

He better not announce that we are going into Syria.

Lem said...

I'm hearing that Obama is about to
address the nation?.. and a source says it about Osama Bin Laden.

chickelit said...

A dead bin Laden complete with a body could give POTUS a dead cat bounce in the polls.

pbAndj said...

I hope Fox is right.

Lem said...

CBS news says we have Osama's body.

peter hoh said...

He's about to speak now. Or so they said before cutting to a commercial.

David said...

Look's like we got Bib Laden and Obama's going to take credit. Stay tuned.

chickelit said...

Shouldn't Alhouse up the color of this post to orange from yellow?

wv = "spitide" that one belongs back in the Ben Masel thread.

Julius said...

OBAMA'S TO-DO LIST:

1. Announce candidacy for re-election.
2. Pull bin-Laden body out of freezer.
3. Schedule late Sunday night "surprise" news conference to ensure "did you hear" chatter at beginning of work week.
4. The Donald ain't gonna fire me!!! Suck it, you comb-over white boy!

pbAndj said...

If it's true would it be possible to hold the BHO attack-angle for two minutes?

Let's be glad for two minutes.

David said...

Look's like we got Bib Laden and Obama's going to take credit. Stay tuned.

peter hoh said...

My son tells me that the idiots on 4chan are hoping that the announcement has to do with aliens.

Lem said...

lol

NotYourTypicalNewYorker said...

Fox News reports Osama Bin Laden ....DEAD>

peter hoh said...

Fox says Osama dead.

David said...

This is great.

Obama got Bin Laden.

Now he can resign after one term with the thanks of a grateful nation.

Julius said...

NY Times home page: Osama bin Laden is dead.

Alex said...

Obama just re-elected. Cancel the election, no need for it.

Alex said...

typical Dhimmi voter - OMIGOSH Obama got Bin Laden!!!!

chickelit said...

pbAndj said...
If it's true would it be possible to hold the BHO attack-angle for two minutes?

If it makes adent in the GWOT, sure. If it doesn't, it was rather symbolic, no?

Crimso said...

killed by US strike last week

pbAndj said...

"If it makes adent in the GWOT, sure. If it doesn't, it was rather symbolic, no?"

In my opinion it'd be nice to come together as Americans for at least two minutes.

It's a free country, you don't need to agree.

David said...

Now, does the death of Bin Laden mean much, other than revenge?

That we will not know for a while.

peter hoh said...

Dude doesn't know how to make an entrance.

Had he announced at 10:30 EST, he would have beaten the leaks.

Methadras said...

They got him. They got him. Best thing Obama has done since the presidency is give the green light to fire that missile.

NotYourTypicalNewYorker said...

This will be nothing but a great big terrorist recruitment tool, a bigger recruitment tool than, than, GITMO!....RIGHT?!

Oh the humanity!

Methadras said...

If they have his body, let's see it, then bury it in pigs blood.

Alex said...

In my opinion it'd be nice to come together as Americans for at least two minutes.

Uh, no. Obama can go climb a tree.

Lem said...

Will Obama give Bush any credit.. likely not.. not helpful to reelection bid.

Alex said...

If Obama is so fucking fantastic wrt the "war on terror" then why did he do NOTHING with regard to the Fort Hood shooter? Just brushed it off.

Crimso said...

Word is the US has the body and DNA confirms

NotYourTypicalNewYorker said...

"Obama can go climb a tree."

RACIST!!!

peter hoh said...

20 seconds

deborah said...

"Uh, no. Obama can go climb a tree."

Will you at least give him credit for zinging Trump last night?

peter hoh said...

new thread

Crimso said...

this is a big fucking deal

Lem said...

If you ask me.. Obama has failed to get his man Gaddafi even while knowing where he is.. while Bush has come back from the dead to get his man Osama.

OMG.... did Obama attack Gaddafi on the verge of the Osama announcement in oder to avert the political spin I have just given?

Mark said...

It would have been a big deal if bin Laden had been operationally significant any time within the last ten years.

As is, it smacks of wagging the dog.

OTOH, it gives The Won an excuse to cut-and-run in Afghanistan. "Hey, we got the bad guy, let's hold a parade for me and get the hell out."

(And yes, there will be a lot of high fives tomorrow and good fellowship, and I can't say that it's wrong. But at this point it will be shallow, and the next crisis Obama faces will erase the good feeling from memory. "Dead Cat Bounce" is the right term.)

Ralph L said...

The Queen of England wore yellow to her grandson's wedding
Primrose yellow, which looks like this.

There is still the head of the one-eyed taliban to get there.

Thank you.
