David Dayen on the #BlackLivesMatter protest at Netroots Nation

I'll ignore O'Malley, who apparently melted down. First, the words of the protesters:

In the garden: Dreams (or plans) coming true

Actually, I'm not sure if this fly is a pollinator or not. But it's certainly acting like one! Read more about In the garden: Dreams (or plans) coming true

The lanyard class

A very obvious class marker at this Eurogroup meeting:

In the garden: Summer miscellany

The raspberries have arrived, and people stop to talk about them, and eat them (especially one ferocious old lady). Read more about In the garden: Summer miscellany

A new Constitutional Order emerges in Europe, revealed by the Greek crisis

This is just a compilation of tweets from Billmon. But I think the thesis, which I restate in the headline, is important. (We might also remember that Germany, like Japan, is an American military protectorate, and that therefore integrating this new state-form into TPP and TTiP, respectively, is important.)

In the garden: Bright, candy-like colors

I had no idea when they said "wildflowers" they meant wild like this. Read more about In the garden: Bright, candy-like colors

In the garden: Moar poppies!

Now pink, as well as red, besides orange. (I am sure, since it's that time of year, I'm going to take many more photos of poppies than normal people would, but they're very beautiful, and also challenging.)

In the garden: Red poppies

I believe I complained about my all-orange poppies, and wondered where the red ones were. Well, here's the first, and it's humongous! (As usual, hard to photograph because it captures any breeze so effectively.) And when I say humongous:

In the garden: Masses of color

As readers may know, my garden is a "Grandmother's Garden," though only as a happy accident:

Often appearing haphazard or growing at random, grandmother's garden was actually designed as a painting with an eye to composition using color, shape, and texture. It is no wonder then that so many painters, writers, poets, and other artists created such gardens. These gardens inspired them and often are seen in their works. ...

In the garden: Wildflowers

This what I had in mind for the front garden, and now it has come to pass! (The hole in the center is where the Common Sowthistle -- hat tip, Mitzi Muffin -- was before I ripped it out.) This section is a bit more patchy than I'd like, because of what the snowplow detritus does to the soil, and the wildflowers in the shady mix section haven't bloomed yet, so I'm not going to have like thirty feet of solid color.
