Flowers, food and mom

Good morning.
Despite a dreary forecast of mostly cloudy and a chance of rain, the weather yesterday turned out great! Sunny and 70! Just tell me, how can the weather 'experts' be so wrong so often???
So I spent an hour and a half weeding yesterday morning, while Craig got his beauty rest. Then after picking up 3 new batteries from the Battery Plus store for the Salon exit signs and emergency lighting, we did some grocery shopping. Then I spent the entire afternoon working in the yard. I now have 284 plants potted up for my big sale on June 6th. My goal of 300 is near!
And as promised, some thing currently blooming in the yard...

A very pretty orange Geum above and a colorful Cranesbil below.
Above, Cushion Spurge, below a flowering shrub called Dwarf Fothergilla.
And finally, a little visitor.
This tree frog was sitting on the arm of one of the deck chairs when we got home. He eventually move over to the table next to it and stayed there all afternoon. Our constant presence didn't seem to bother him one bit.
And for dinner, we had pork steaks on the grill with roasted red potatoes, and steamed broccoli. And for evening entertainment, our Monday sitcoms. We lead such an exciting life.
Oh, and in other news, my Mom is getting out of rehab on Wednesday. Just in time for Mother's Day weekend. She sure is happy about that!


  1. "Oh, and in other news, my Mom is getting out of rehab on Wednesday."

    If I had just started reading your blog I'd think your mom was a druggie or alcoholic.

  2. Okay, I suppose I could have gone into further detail, But I just assume most of my readers are regulars and I don't want to bore them constantly repeating myself. ;-)

  3. I know she's excited.
    Take care! :)
