flag day



Not the best pictures but I got to plant some flowers today outside of my apartment...
...inpatients, a hosta, some pots of flowers...



My window box with sweet potato vines...


...more sweet potato vines in bright green, more inpatients, ....


I have a lot of shade. The whole yard does actually so I don't have a lot of options. These pictures really are terrible and it looks much prettier in person. I think I'll try for some more tomorrow. I love planting every year!

Today I also...
  • Mowed the GIANT yard for my dad. He has always done it...for 30 years. So I think it was a little wierd for him to watch me do it. It is quite a job...over 2 hours!
  • Took 2 showers because I was so covered with pollen after mowing I couldn't stand it! I am looking forward to the rain this week...there is a fine yellow dust on EVERYTHING inside and out!
  • Went to Trader Joe's. Got a huge, beautiful bunch of flowers they called a "Van Gogh" arrangement...sunflowers, greenery with hints of purple. Again the light wasn't good so the photos weren't coming out good. I'll try again tomorrow. They make me happy.
  • bought and planted flowers and a few perrenials.
  • dishes...boo! My worst chore.
  • Recovered from the Relay-for-Life last night. It was fun and our city raised a lot of money! I'll end with a photo of some of the luminarias lit on the high school bleachers to form the word HOPE. It was an emotional scene highlighted by a bagpipe player playing Amazing Grace...
