But sometimes, I see it in action...
This is why I love my orange boy!
"I'm so innocent -- if she didn't want me to play with it, why does she leave it hanging around?"
Looking forward to a weekend of high school open houses, a "Reading Rainbow" contest awards presentation, and playing in a bit of yarn and glue!
Last night I up-potted some plants that I put in far-too small pots, just to get them out of the starter plugs. I knew if I didn't move them up soon, they'd not really work to their potential. (In pots, I'm not sure they ever do, but it works for me.
My herb garden. Very good oregano, sage, thyme, lemon balm and some brand new parsley -- with a rose or two, just for fun.This is the front of the house -- I have basil, fennel, flowers and peppers here.
I have bad clay dirt (and not enough motivation to put in new dirt) so all the annuals go in pots. These are my tomatoes, many of which I up-potted last night.
This will look tidier when the tulip and daff leaves go, but I'm told they shouldn't be cut back. I'll probably put in some geraniums or something in front, just so it doesn't look quite so overgrown, because really, it's not!
I used to have bushes in the wall in front of the house. Last year, big hunky football player Kevin tore them out (I paid him, but I'm not sure I could have ever paid him enough for that -- getting the roots out was awful!). I mulched it over, but put in a few patio stones, so I could have a sitting spot!
I finished "Groucho and Me," a collection of life vignettes from Groucho Marx's life. It's a witty, funny book, especially if you are a fan of vaudeville, old movies and the Marx Brothers.
Now it's on to "The Sisters," which is a saga of the six Mitford sisters. I love just about anything set in England and they had such wildly diverse and controversial lives. It's a thick one -- I'm reading this along with my reading buddy (and old friend) Suzanne in Ontario. She's far ahead of me and I must catch up!
Show and Tell Sunday's theme this week is "Trash to Treasure." I realized I have far more trash than treasure. Well, not quite true -- lots of lovely treasures, but I've had little hand in making them so! Pop by and I'll send you to the link for other sites sharing their creations!
