The obligatory post with cars and pictures

Well, as I've been muttering recently, spring has finally sprung in this part of the world and the back yard is beginning to fill up with hanging baskets of flowers:

Petunias and some yellow things.

Unfortunately, the back yard is also filling up with weeds:

This is a dandelion.

And occasionally with hack photographers taking pictures of themselves through glass tabletops:

and really silly looking birds, too.

Oh yes, cars... well, recently, a bright red Ferrari (probably a 360 Modena) which my morning bus overtook on the highway; a white Lamborghini Gallardo parked near a waste transfer station (I suspect mob activity); and a spiffy, late-model Mustang GT at the local chopper shop (that's a "custom motorcycle modification and fabrication establishment" for you non-North Americans). A rather large number of convertible Mercedes seem to have crept out of the woodwork too, as well as the drop-top BMW M3 that I saw yesterday as it gradually left us behind on a country road. And there have even been some old muscle cars, escaping their winter garages: Camaros, older Mustangs, and the like. All in all, a good week or two.

Drat. I read the title and "cats" instead of "cars" and got all excited. Not only because I likes me some kitty cats but also because whilst I have been aware of Ricardipus for some time now, I didn't not realize there was a Ricardicat. But it was cars. So, never mind.

Also we have daffodils and dandelions out here as well.

That is all

Or "with" cats instead of "cars," if you want that last post to make sense. If you're picky like that. Which obviously, I'm not.

Picky or making sense.

It's a matched set.

I am so confused by those last two comments.

That is all.

Wrath, what do you drink exactly?

Ricardipus, nice Grackle.

That is all.
