Hi Folks ~
Here it is Wednesday afternoon for us, it’s been a gray, dreary day today, t-storms around midnight last night with one of the biggest claps of thunder I’ve ever heard. Sheesh. Lots of rain too, then we had another thunder storm this morning but not as bad, and LOTS more rain so that the driveway was flooded and the main garden was covered in water again too. I guess you could say our 5 year drought is over. I’m glad to read that a lot of you have started getting some much needed rain too and that temps have cooled down somewhat.
I got a load of laundry hung out to dry and brought in yesterday, and also mowed, just in the nick of time. I did nothing outside today, except for a quick walk around.
Here are some photos of blooms taken the other day.
This little lovely is Fringe Flower. I bought it along with 6 other plants around my bday in March. I just love these blooms.
Look what shows up once the petals fall off. Amazing. A petal is in each one of these bits of loveliness. They look like miniature flowers themselves.
Mixed caladiums, including Miss Muffet, from Meems. Thanks again Meems.
Also volunteer vincas.
Resurrection ferns growing up the Norfolk pine tree. When it hasn’t rained, these ferns are dried up and dead looking. As soon as it rains, they look like this, hence the name resurrection fern.
Cocktail roses, past their prime.
Fading Phyllis Bide roses.
My latest needlework creation, which you can read about in my other blog here.
That’s it for now.
Time for a glass of pre-dinner wine while I figure out what to fix for supper.
