I snapped a few of my flowers while watering yesterday. The flowers above are one of 4 pots of the bargain table flowers that I bought for only 9 dollars. I had planted them hoping some might survive, but they have all done quite well.
I'm excited to see my hydrangea blooming this year. I haven't had much luck with them, but I planted this one on the north side of the house and I'm hoping it will be happy there.
The Stella's have done well and are bright and cheery in the gardens.
This rose is what is left of several that were here when we moved to this house 28 years ago. I don't know what kind it is except it's not a tea rose. Maybe a shrub type? You can't see them, but on either side are my hostas along with the hydrangea.
This is one of two boxes of vincas that are on either side of the door to the storage building that sits on one end of our patio in back. They always do well for me and they are also some of my bargain flowers. I have so many pots to fill that I watch for those good deals!
The heat continues for my area. It's so hot that I don't stay outside long. The watering of flowers will have to be done this evening. I cleaned out my refrigerator this morning and did a few chores. After I hit the publish button on this post, the vacuum will come out and I will give the house a quick cleaning. Then a run to the store for a few items.
Our son is coming home for the weekend. He will be helping BG do a few things downstairs. I don't really like to heat up the house by turning on the oven, but I think I'll make some lasagna for our supper. That sounds good to me. Tomorrow, we can keep the heat outside where it belongs and grill. I am hungry for a pasta salad so that will also be on the menu for tomorrow, too. I have a few zucchini and I can't decide whether to put some in the salad or cut lengthwise and put on the grill. Do you have a favorite pasta salad?
Many thanks to each of you who left such sweet comments about the passing of the little kitten. I know many of you are animal lovers, too, and share my sorrow.
Happy Friday to you!
