Hello. Well….this picture somehow posted itself at the top of the post even though it was the last one I tried to paste in. Meh. Fine, I’ll talk about that one first. I love my alliums! Big ol’ purple alien heads, swaying in the wind. And they smell so good! The white “Snow in Summer” is one of my favorite flowers. Pure pure white. I saw a black petunia at the nursery so I bought it just because it was so different.
Well, I was supposed to head over to Chicago today to see my sis and the kids. Last night sis texted me saying that one of the kids was throwing up. I haven’t been feeling super great myself for the last couple of days, so I opted (and sis agreed) to stay home rather than share my germs with them and bring theirs home. I’m a bit disappointed but we will all be at the lake in July so that will be fun.
Work has been hairy. Not super crazy, but I am working all the time and it will therefore be nice to have these three days off.
Now, to my gardens. I am going to post pics of a couple of the gardens that are in good shape. I love my Coral Bells plants. They are perennial. They are hardy…pretty much always coming back after even the hardest of winters. And they have so many fun varieties…and name them fun names, which makes me even more likely to buy them!
This one is named “Sweet Tea”. The one after it is “Peach Flambe'”. Third one down is “Creme Brulee”. Then “Key Lime Pie”. After Key Lime Pie is “Venus”. Next I will try to post “Blackout” . *drumroll*
Whew! It worked! Ok, so as not to break a nearly perfect record of “animals in every post”…here’s a few cats and a dog. Three weeks ago we had hard driving rain for an entire day. Stringbean (Great Hunter) was out in this storm all day long, having a blast hunting who-knows-what?….he returned home drenched. I mean wet to the skin and every move he made showered me with water. I have never seen a wetter cat.
