It was such a beautiful day here today...probably in the high 70's with a breeze. It's supposed to be warmer on Friday~maybe even a record breaker.
Yesterday, I did the last of my "flower" shopping. I got some geraniums, lots of lobelia (finally) and another bag of Miracle Grow Garden Soil.
I can't remember if I've already posted a picture of my new washing machine or not. Anyway, I've actually had it since last fall, when the gal down the street moved to Arkansas. I saw it and asked her what she was doing with it & she said "nothing.. do you want it?" So I wheeled it down the street. I thought I would fill it full of dirt and plant flowers in it but that would take an awful lot of dirt and besides the lid is in good shape & I didn't want to discard it...so I decided to plant the lid. I put some potting soil around the edge and popped in some nasturtium seeds and carefully covered them up and watered them. The way I figure...the flowers will boom and hang out over the edge of the lid.
I planted lobelia in several hanging baskets and the geraniums in pots that I have sitting here and there. I didn't get it all done before I was pooped and had to quit...but almost. I also went "big" grocery shopping today, so had all of that stuff to bring home & put away.
My handsome son came over after work and mowed the back lawn this afternoon. I stopped my planting to feed him some dinner and visit with him for awhile and then he was off and I continued for about an hour. I'm also moving all the pots with spent daffodils & tulips in them, back behind my shed. I figure if I water them once in awhile during the summer they'll bloom again next spring.
Well that's all for tonight...enjoy the pictures. Until next time, Linda
