==> Betram: Wander the woods

You were wandering these woods alot more lately, as you had noticed. Probably with your most recent birthday and the clock ticking on how long you could stay secluded and unnoticed, you got restless, you wanted to live life a little before you were probably caught for your curse and killed. The down side was living usually involved other people, and most the people you’d ever met were dead. You weren’t gonna risk anymore, so you wandered your woods day after day, your hive in the background. You doubt you’de see anyone, these woods were supposedly cursed, really the curse was just you. Oh well, maybe someday you’ll wake up and everyone you see won’t die, til then, here you were.

Betram.

I know a lot of us are thinking Betram is to convincing as Red John, especially at the start of this season. So we think he can’t be Red John cause he is too obvious. What if that’s what they want us to think but then he still ends up being Red John? Just something to think about. I personally still think it is Ray Haffner.

*Betram stared around him wide eyed. He’d gone to the market for just a few moments, just trying to feel like a normal person again. Now here he was, surrounded by blood and bodies, a rockslide crushing the entire place and all who were there. He shook at the horror he had caused*

(So, i’m working on fantrolls this morning, here’s one i think is going well

Name: Betram Eurasi

Blood: Purple

Age: 10 sweeps.

Pesterchum: HauntedPillar

Lusus: A large raven 

Location: He lives on a high cliff without any cities or sburbs for miles.

Personality/Story: He’s a quiet person with a guilt riddled past, he brings bad luck to all those around him. He angers easily, and isn’t very friendly, but he feels deeply for those hurt, even when it wasn’t by him. He’s cursed with a shadow of death, not on himself but all those around him, whether he knows them or not. It started when his ancestor murdered his twin in cold blood over a treasure. Since then all of his line have been cursed with the death of all those around them, they often died alone, or were assassinated as “A threat to the general populous”. He stays away from everyone, even those he would prefer dead.

Syladex: He uses an eye chart syladex, he must spot the item he wants on a chart, it’s row and collumn, from 20 feet. He has 20/5 vision so it isn’t a problem.

Strife specibus: Fankind

Quirk: Capitalizes Y’s, R’s, O’s, W’s, and C’s. [   .He keeps his sentences far away from his conversation partner.   ]

Horns: Small split horns facing up.

Title: Rouge of light

Land: Land of tunnels and rivers

Appearance: 6’ 5”, Straight black hair in a pony tail, He wears a long cloak that obscures most of himself, under it he wears a skin tight flight suit. He uses large fans he can attach to the suit to glide from high places.

I cleared it with http://theductiletroll.tumblr.com/ that he’ll be related to http://theductiletroll.tumblr.com/post/44581692062/basic-information-name-corvus-eurasi-gender

He’ll make an appearance soon.)

‘Tis Snowdrop time, as with much else, early this year and so I thought I’d get myself into gear with a just a select selection. More, obviously, to come.

And a roundup of recently tweeted images, just to make sure I haven’t kept anything back from the folks at The Teddington Gardener (plus I think, especially with the Hellebores, more is more, even if they are repeats…)

This gallery are all Ashwood hybrids – such a range of freckles and dots, blotches and picotee edges, solid pure colours and blends, singles, anemone-centred and doubles with contrasting or complimentary nectaries to set the whole thing off –

… and they make superb floral displays, either as longer stems in simple posies (in which case blanch the cut stems in just boiled water for 10 seconds) or as floating heads in your favourite bowl

Distinct from the Ashwood hybrids, this rare beautiy (below) Hellebore x belcheri Pink Ice, an interspecies cross between Helleborus niger and Helleborus thibetanus. It’s causing quite a stir and was bred at Ashwood Nurseries in the West Midlands

The start of the journey for any new hellebore at Ashwood Nurseries begins in this glasshouse. Would have loved to spend an hour in here with this low sun streaking through.

The Camellia season is getting underway too – again a little early for some of the cultivars/species and these caught my eye on my recent travels –

This wall-trained cotoneaster – also caught my eye, though I don’t think it is the usual C. horizontalis, in the absence of the herringbone branching that is typical.

Finally, the gloss on this Sarcococca confusa – and the clean white threads of the scented flowers had to be admired and photographed. I’ve four of these to plant in the next week or so and will look forward to enjoying their scent in the garden in the years to come.

The Internet raised $50,000 to help a retired police officer keep his K9 partner

Retiring Marietta, Ohio police officer Matthew Hickey and his K9 partner, Ajax, are discovering how wonderful that can be.
Sad story about how a Marietta K9 Officer could loose his beloved partner Ajax.
But there’s a catch: according to city law, Ajax is property of the city of Marietta.
The vests will probably continue to be an ongoing topic following Sunday’s stabbing death of a K9 officer in the line of duty near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Marietta Law Director Paul Betram III told WBNS, The dog is property of the city of Marietta.
