#DailyDaffodil today is:
Narcissus 'Jetfire'

This is an March flowering daffodil, and one of the particularly nice things about it is that it can be planted in more shade than most daffodils. So plant in a shady place under some deciduous trees and shrubs (i.e. they loose their leaves each autumn) and it will brighten up that area of the garden beautifully.

Private and locked parks are such a disappointing use of what should be public space.

These keep popping up each year in the front yard. They’re like the greatest weeds ever #florespondence

Kubernetes monitoring fun Show more

I'm putting together some resources for spinning up a minimal monitoring stack and I was just able to spin up kube-state-metrics off the YAMLs on HEAD and query it. Surprisingly straightforward!

Playing around with Kubernetes 1.12 on GKE today and boy this is an adventure 🎊

These are the final ones for this series. It was taken about 10 days ago, by now a lot of the petals have already dropped. But I have some more from last week, will post them later.

Today's #DailyDaffodil is another jonquil narcissi:
Narcissus 'Hoopoe'.
Jonquilla narcissi can have between 1-5 flowers per stem and have a wonderful fragrance which belie their delicate appearance. Grow them near your front and/or back door so you can enjoy the fragrance regularly. They also make great cut flowers. #florespondence #plants
