Our pretty redbud trees and lilacs are almost done with blooming this year. I'm seeing some beautiful bright white and pink dogwood trees around town and I'm wishing I had a couple of those in my yard.
It's almost time to plant something in the flower pots and I'm debating on cutting back. It's getting to be a chore keeping them all watered. I've been looking at Pinterest to see what would be a good flower to plant that is heat resistant, too. My back patio gets so hot in the summer.
What is your must-have flower when planting flower pots?
I've lost about 4 of my 10 or so Knockout roses and can't quite figure out what's happening to them. I'll replant one of them, but the others will not be replaced. I think I'll try something else in their place.
I have a question...do you prefer the larger photos like the blue bird photo or the smaller size as in the first photo of the lilac?
The photos in this post are from my archives. I just haven't taken many photos lately. The one above should have been cropped and resized.
I'm happy to have my laptop back from the shop and working properly again. It was locking up and I couldn't stay online for long.
It's embarrassing to admit, but they told me the main thing wrong was that it was just a lot of cat hair inside clogging it up. It was getting so hot and noisy, I'm surprised it worked as long as it did. Anyway, all is well now and I feel like I have a new laptop!
I don't have a clue who that person is in the photo above. BG and I were sitting on a bench opposite them and we were people-watching and this pose got me to giggling and I had to snap a pic. I think it was the shorts. :)
What I'm noticing a lot these days is that everyone seems to be wearing black socks as opposed to the white that we used to see all the time. Is this a new trend? Not that it really matters to me, I won't be wearing them. I do love my new black Skechers flipflops, though!
I've been so hungry lately and want to eat everything in sight. Do you ever have those days? Well, it's time to stop that and start eating more salads and healthy foods.
Almost forgot to mention Easter! We had a nice day and drove to the halfway diner, as I call it, to meet our son for dinner. He was home for a visit the weekend before and couldn't come in this time. I forgot to take a photo of my plate like I usually do.
As you have surmised by now, nothing too exciting has been going on here. Unless you think getting a pedicure for the first time this year is exciting. Or taking the car in for an oil change and tire rotation and waiting for 2 1/2 hours is exciting. Or finally getting the laptop cleaned up and workable again, now that was exciting, at least to me.
Now it's time to finish up the laundry and get the vacuum out. Another exciting day at Pond Hollow! :) Hopefully, if all goes according to plan, I'll have some new photos to share next time.
Happy Thursday to you!
