Very confusing. Am I reading this right - is Clarkia a clematis?

No, for some reason Kin switched out photos for BOTD after this was posted. I have done that too but DG instead of deleting the entire entry keeps it but the picture changes to the current BOTD under the old name as well as making a new entry of the new plant picked in a new thread. I guess we are meant not to change them out after midnight but sometimes we have a reason too.

Hi PIrl, happy Saturday!

Pirl, didn't you mention to me last week somewhere you were going to have a lobster roll? I am so excited. I just learned of a lobster place here that has good ones. We are going for lunch and also to buy a couple of live lobsters for dinner. YUM Called The New England Lobster.

I will always think of you when I think of lobster rolls! LOL

We'll head to Cape Cod for them in September. It's too crowded up there until after Labor Day.

Enjoy that lobster roll - it looks great on the ad! It should be: a hot toasted roll, very cold lobster with a minimum of mayo, a dribble of lime. No celery - no lettuce! Please take photos.

What a lovely way to be remembered. Beats the heck out of thinking of me vacuuming or cleaning floors!

No lime but minimal all else. My husband is very strict too on what goes on a lobster roll. He grew up in New Hampshire. The bun was excellent, the lobster a great texture but lacking in flavor. Typical of lobster here. It may be the plane trip just is too much for them. We have only had 1 very tasty lobster here in all the years we have lived here.

It cost $15 and next to yours which was so full of lobster, we were robbed!

We also bought 3 1 1/2 pounders for dinner. I am so hoping they have flavor.

Next visit I am getting a Dungeness crab roll. I bet that will be so fresh. They also had lobster claw and knuckle meat fresh picked for $45 a pound. $30 for the Dungeness crab meat. I will get the crab meat soon and make my own so fat crab rolls for dinner.

Lucky you to be on the Cape in September. My best friend from college lives on the Cape. She has a house on the water with a dock for their boat. Always beautiful there.

And as I sat at their little outdoor counter freezing and getting so windblown as I gobbled on my lobster roll, I did in fact think of you! LOL It is in an industrial area of South San Francisco and not very visually appealing at all. Definitely not the Cape.

Sorry it wasn't up to par. It does look sparse! I hope the dinner lobsters are better. The Dungeness crab sounds great! Out here the rolls cost $17.00 and aren't worth a dollar.

I do make our own shrimp rolls - a poor substitute for the lobster but it fills a need during July and August until we can get back to our cabin on the lake.

Thanks. If I lived there I'd never get any gardening done. It's too relaxing to just sit back and enjoy the view.

We could sip vodka tonics with lime or lemon drops!

Or Cape Codders! Cranberry juice and vodka with a twist of lime. It works for me!
