Yesterday was another beautiful spring day with the bluest sky and fluffy white clouds overhead. The air was perfumed with the scent of lilacs.
Our lilacs aren't blooming as well as usual this year, but they survived the drought so I'm happy with what I have.
I got a few flowers planted and spray painted some old pots that were looking a bit tired, kind of like me without my makeup lately. The paint really made them look better, if only makeup would work such wonders! I've been dealing with vertigo lately and bending over aggravates the situation, so I'm slow getting some things done. Looking up doesn't help either, but I just had to stop a few times and admire the clouds and watch the jets streaking overhead. I wonder where this one is headed?
You just knew I'd have to zoom in, didn't you? I love to see the different airliners.
Our little dwarf apple trees we planted last year are blooming. We kept them watered all through the drought, so they are doing fine. I think I counted all of 12-14 blooms on this little tree. Hubby says we should have planted semi-dwarf trees. To tell the truth, I don't want too many apples. We used to have a lot of apple trees and I made apple pies and froze them and canned apple pie filling. I don't want to do that again.
I still always plant the tried and true geraniums every year. I also bought flowers such as African Daisies, Petunias, the Supertunias, Marigolds and others. I plant a lot of the Sweet Potato vine, it looks so good trailing out of a pot and is very hardy. I'm needing a few more flowers to fill all the newly spruced up pots, so I'll be shopping again. What is your favorite flower to grow in pots?
My 500th post is fast approaching. Most of you have long reached that number, but I don't post every day so it's taken me a while to reach it. It's still hard to believe that I've done that many.
The blogging community is a terrific group of people and I've enjoyed getting to know you through your posts and wonderful photos. So, to celebrate the big 500 and to show my appreciation for your support of my little blog, I am doing a giveaway and the drawing will be next week.
I picked up a couple of things while we were in Branson over the weekend, there will be a gift card and some other goodies. I won't have any strict rules other than you must be a follower....I think that is only fair....and tell me in a comment that you would like to be in the drawing. I will post photos of the giveaway items and announce the time of the drawing next week! You can let me know anytime between now and the cutoff date I'll announce next week if you would like to enter!
Until next time...
