Photos: mostly of ball-jointed Asian dolls (some not quite safe for work), cats, plants; occasionally art; and local Chicagoland scenery. Comments are moderated so they will take a bit to show up.

Random Tuesday Stuff in My Yard
I got nuthin' for today since I spent a lot of it on my stomach, with a new box of grout and a spatula, fixing seams on tile. It looks better today but I know how to make the next one better--the grout needs to have the consistency of frosting. Anyway, I also got the tread edge reinstalled to protect the upper part of the tile boards:
Next will be some sash molding, a thin wooden slat about an inch and 1/8 tall that will run across the base of the tile, to hide the grout edge and screws.
Here is a little bit of what is blooming outside:
Buddleia! There are butterflies that visit, but the tens of birds zooming around make them nervous, so it's hard to get a good photo. We did have a hummingbird!
And we finally have tomatoes. I need to remember there is no use in planting them until Mid-June, because before then they just sulk and do nothing. They are tasty :D
