June 3. The birthday of Ian Hunter, Allen Ginsburg, Josephine Baker, Curtis Mayfield, Suzi Quatro, and my always beloved husband. I could not possibly love him more. A picture of us an unbelievably long time ago. I still love the way he smells. Nobody else smells like him. When he's been away and comes home and hugs me, it's the first thing that hits me. A tinge of vanilla, and just, Ernie.

Happy birthday, baby.

And, in honor of Ernie's birthday, the first spiderwort of the summer! All you spiderwort haters just be quiet. This is a wonderfully faithful and well-behaved spiderwort.
