      I am giddy with anticipation.

    Today’s state flower is the Idaho Mock Orange!

    The state flower of Idaho, Philadelphus lewisii (Lewis’ mock-orange), is in the family Hydrangaceae, & was first collected by Meriwether Lewis in 1806. It gets its common name from the beautiful, orangey scent that makes it attractive to bees, & humans alike. It is a deciduous shrub native to western North America, from northwestern California in the Sierra Nevada, north to southern British Columbia, & east to Idaho & Montana, in USDA hardiness zones 4-8. It is widespread, but not very common, usually appearing as an individual plant amongst other species. Other common names include wild mock-orange, though this can apply to any species in the genus, & also syringa which is a name that usually refers to the unrelated lilacs.

    The shrub grows to 4-10 feet in height, sending out long stems which are red when new & fade to gray with age. The leaves vary in size, & are light green in color with a rough texture. Mock Orange flowers for several weeks starting in the late spring to early summer, when the tall, arching branches are covered with a multitude of snow-white blossoms, with pale yellow centers. The flowers are produced in clusters at the ends of long stems, & at the height of flowering, the plant is covered in a mass of blossoms.

    Mock Orange is a good garden shrub for its hardiness, usefulness, beauty, & fragrance, but because of its attractiveness to bees, it is not best to plant near a door. The nectar-rich mock orange blossoms also attract butterflies, & are often used as cut flowers. Fragrance is a major selling point for mock orange, unfortunately, not all cultivars are equally fragrant, so a good time to buy mock orange is when it is in bloom. After the petals fall, the sepals remain in a way that looks like a second, “flower”, & the leaves turn yellow providing longer seasonal interest & color. The fruit is a small hard capsule about a centimeter long with woody, pointed wings, containing many brown seeds. (We had some kind of mock orange in our yard when I was a child, & I would wait with great anticipation for the lovely blossoms’ fragrance.)

    Even when mock orange becomes wildly overgrown all is not lost because the shrub, if healthy, will respond well to careful drastic pruning. Timing of pruning is important to flower development. Like lilacs, mock orange should be pruned right after flowers fade. Pruning too late in the season can cut off next year’s buds, & it will not flower the next year. Improper fertilization can also be a reason why it does not bloom. Too much nitrogen from lawn fertilizers can cause a mock orange to grow large & bushy, but not flower. The bushes generally blossom more profusely if planted in full sun, however it is tolerant of a wide variety of conditions, from full sun to partial shade, & from moist to dry soil. It is known to be quite drought tolerant once established, though additional water can help it to flower more vigorously. It succeeds in any moderately fertile soil, thin soils over chalk, even in heavy clay soils, but it prefers moist, well-drained, loamy soil.

    The leaves & flowers are rich in saponins. When crushed & mixed with water they produce a lather that cleans your body, clothes etc. Wash your hands by picking a couple of leaves or a bunch of blossom, wetting & then rubbing the plant material vigorously as if it were a bar of soap. This soap is very gentle & does not remove the body’s natural oils. It removes dirt, but is not very effective against oil. An infusion of the bark can also be used. The stems can be used in making fine coiled baskets. The wood is strong, very hard & used for tool handles. The dried powdered leaves, or the powdered wood, has been mixed with oil & used as a rub on sores & swollen joints. The mock orange is really an impressive shrub.

    The below painting is ‘Mock Orange in a Vase’ by Leslie Watts. In comparison to yesterday’s impasto painting, this paintings shows with great clarity the different textures and effects of light upon them.

    Have a great day everyone! πŸ™‚

    litenmaus and I were talking about Opus a couple of days ago and then my chair, here is the promised picture.

    Here you go πŸ™‚ . My “office” chair 😜. I still laugh when I think of my friend feeling sorry for me and saying I obviously needed a new chair. Just look at the beautiful old mechanics, metal and wood. And Opus has never complained!

    • You know, when people become that deranged, what they say doesn’t bother me.

      Melania, perhaps more than Pres Trump, because of her modeling career, has had much more criticism of her appearance than most of us, so I’m guessing she is used to people criticizing her, although not about everything in her entire life.

      Although it may be hard to have a “tough skin”, the Trumps must know the value of the opposition showing their true craziness.

      People putting me down or saying crazy things about me do not bother me, but the sly lies, and outright lying misquotes of me in the press (both of which have been done to me), do bother me, and I do try to set the record straight. At some time however, you have to let it go, and realize you are a good person, they are the crazy ones, and not let them control your thoughts or waste your time.

      Remember that Hillary would disappear for days if not weeks at a time during the election and there was not one peep of speculation while she was getting vodka transfusions or convalescing.

      Melania is European, I am certain she is horrified by the way the MSM treats her husband, herself and her family.

        Remember the fawning and gushing over Michelle, a woman who hated America and made no bones about it? When she wasn’t spending our money like water and even when she was?

        Now we have a responsible, sensible First Lady and all she gets is hatred. The MSM makes me sick.

    DOJ watchdog finds James Comey defied authority as FBI director, sources say

    One source told ABC News that the draft report explicitly used the word “insubordinate” to describe Comey’s behavior. Another source agreed with that characterization but could not confirm the use of the term.

    In the draft report, Inspector General Michael Horowitz also rebuked former Attorney General Loretta Lynch for her handling of the federal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s personal email server, the sources said.

    Obama-era license aimed to let Iran convert money in dollars

    The Obama administration secretly sought to give Iran access β€” albeit briefly β€” to the U.S. financial system by sidestepping sanctions kept in place after the 2015 nuclear deal, despite repeatedly telling Congress and the public it had no plans to do so.

    An investigation by Senate Republicans released Wednesday sheds light on the delicate balance the Obama administration sought to strike after the deal, as it worked to ensure Iran received its promised benefits without playing into the hands of the deal’s opponents. Amid a tense political climate, Iran hawks in the U.S., Israel and elsewhere argued that the United States was giving far too much to Tehran and that the windfall would be used to fund extremism and other troubling Iranian activity.

    The report by the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations revealed that under President Barack Obama, the Treasury Department issued a license in February 2016, never previously disclosed, that would have allowed Iran to convert $5.7 billion it held at a bank in Oman from Omani rials into euros by exchanging them first into U.S. dollars. If the Omani bank had allowed the exchange without such a license, it would have violated sanctions that bar Iran from transactions that touch the U.S. financial system.

    • Very interesting info Lovely. Just more proof where Obama’s alligence really lies.

      When the Shah was overthrown I was working for a DoD subcontractor who had a contract with Iran (among many other DoD contracts). The financial papers for the Iran contract were all in 1 cabinet that was then padlocked with a big metal bar over it, left there for a few years, then carted away. Obama was so concerned with giving money to the ayatollah, but did he ever consider repaying the money LOST by US companies who did work in Iran before the revolution and were never paid – I don’t think so. Also, wasn’t that money he sent there supposedly for unpaid contracts made with the Iranians pre-revolution, but those contracts were made with the Shah and his gov’t, not the gov’t who overthrew him – or did I read the news stories wrong?

        I think you hit the head on the nail. I wonder how much of the pallet money went to Swiss Bank accounts to await Iran’s DC regime.

        I’m also sure the cash that went out the open window for withdrawal that Obama gifted Iran didn’t all stay in Iran.

        Pure corrupt filth.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    Some fascinating thinking going on here…they are in oldest to newest order….

    Thread by @_ImperatorRex_: “1. OF COURSE. How did I miss it? Horowitz flipped Lisa Page between Jan – March, 2017. Horowitz started watching Comey’s FBI and then Mueller’s SC, as soon as it started – 17 May, 2017.

    1. Lisa Page was covertly working wth the OIG. But did Strzok/FBI and Mueller’s team know? I think not. Let me explain.
    2. Yesterday, I posted a thread arguing that Page had flipped and was an OIG asset from early 2017 (latest, May).

    Thread by @_ImperatorRex_: “1. Some have been asking what I made of Papadopoulos ‘wife’s’ interview with Carlson. To be honest, I don’t know what to make of it.

    Thread by @_ImperatorRex_: “1. If Mueller is a bad actor on a suicide mission and really wants to put @GenFlynn away, he has a MAJOR problem. THE LAW.
