I finally got some rain yesterday!!! Whoo hoo!!! A good rain too! I cleaned house pretty much all day...which was much needed. It has to rain in order for me to get housework done, or I will stay outside all day!! I did manage to get everything done inside that needed to be done....whew! Can you see the rain clouds?
Look how green everything is.
Dinner Plate Dahlia
Lacecap Hydrangea, this one was pink when I planted it last year. I have not added a thing to it....it changed based on the soil. I like it blue.
Hydrangea....I am watching this one close. I got it from my grandma, and it was a powder blue....now it is light blue, lavender, white and has hints of pink. Of course it isn't completely done blooming....so it may turn completely blue.
Petunias...in my favorite color
I had to run out to the flea market yesterday afternoon to pick up something for The Hunter. To make my trip worth while, I figured I would buy some flowers. There are always tons of great flowers at the Flea Market. You can usually get some good deals late Sunday afternoon, because most people don't want to haul all of that stuff back home. Most people had packed up and gone home, but I did find some great hydrangeas. I got two hydrangeas for $10....can you see the smile on my face!!! One is a lacecap and the other is a mophead.
The lacecap...not sure the name of it. Look at the double blooms. Very neat, I don't have one like this.I love the pale pink and white
Here is the other one I bought, It is bigger than the other
This is the same hydrangea...look at the color variation. That is one of the things I love about hydrangeas......how they change colors as they bloom.
I did make one other purchase at the Flea Market....I couldn't resist this! Now pardon the picture....I wasn't trying to be a porn star....Maybe I should have taken the picture in the mirror, The Hunter was gone to work and couldn't take it, and Kiki was sleeping (go figure). So I took the picture myself....but now that I look at it....well.....seems a bit...well....its all boobs. Sorry......I just wanted to show ya'll my cute shirt....It says "I Make Dirt Look Good".........how PRECIOUS is that. I love it. It will be part of my new yard outfit! Maybe I should have taken a picture of the shirt before I put it on....oh well. I tried to crop it...but that just made it worse.
Anyway...moving right along.....its Monday...ugh!!! I am already wishing the weekend was here!!! It is pretty cool out this morning. The rain really cooled it down, and there is no humidity. It was 58 degrees outside on my way to work. It is supposed to warm up, the humidity is low today...so it should be great outside. Have a great Monday
