Saffron Ready to Burst

Fall has come and the saffron I'd pulled from the garden and put in a plastic bag (and the forgot about) has decided it doesn't care if there's dirt or not.  It's sprouting anyway which means I'd better find some dirt pronto to keep my babies going.

It's been a long time since the last post so here's what's gone on since then.
Moved cities and moved from a house to an apartment.  This of course means my dirt area has shrunk to nothing.  I've also lost 2 cats.  Changed jobs but same field.
On the plus side my wife and I have been learning Japanese and are having a good time with it.  Still not too good with the kanji though.  Lots to learn.  Hoping to visit Japan soon to see how well we really can hold our own in a conversation where we can't just hop to English if needed.

In the mean time I hope to get a pretty garden going soon and back to regular posts.
