Monday In Bloom

07-02-2017 GW09 (57)I popped some cupcakes in the oven and figured I had enough time to go outside and take some pictures.  As I was outside, the wind whipped up and the storm clouds moved in.  I came back inside with 2 minutes left on my timer, and when the timer beeped, the rain came down in sheets!  Just made it!

07-02-2017 GW09 (32)Everything seems to be doing really well now.  Everything is established and for the most part, thriving.  The pansies are trying to come back from the near death caused by Morticia Rabbit – keeping them high out of her reach is helping.  My lavender plant though seems to be dying off, at least partially.  I’ll be keeping an eye on it.  I need to do some serious dead-heading and weeding.  Not sure if I’ll be able to get to that before next weekend as we start back to homeschool this week.  We’ll see though!

Daisies are thriving, shining steadily like a beacon.

Snapdragons are looking bold and beautiful.

To stand by this pot, you get the sweetest scent of sweet alyssum, it’s heavenly!

The salvia are really healthy, too.  They’re very lush and full.

Yes, I’m pretty sure I over-planted this pot.  And you know what?  I don’t think I care!  lol

I love these pots!

The hanging baskets are filling up nicely, too.  That icicles plant might be too big for these pots.  I’ve never planted it before so it was kind of a test.  At this stage, it looks nice though!

Most people?  Well huh.  I’ve been blogging for over a decade, there isn’t much left I’m willing to tell!  lol 

Okay, how about this – I’ve never had a broken bone.  Came close once, when I was 13 and fell off my skateboard.  But no.

Never had surgery either.  Or stitches.
