It is still dry as a bone here! The weather says there is a 40% chance of rain today, and rain is predicted through Thursday. I am crossing my fingers! We had a productive weekend around the house taking care off odds and ends. All of our outside faucets leaked, so after 5 trips to Lowe's we finally got them fixed! Then Saturday night our hot water heater started to leak, bad! So we had to turn it off, and then go back to Lowe's on Sunday and get the parts to fix it as well. Thank goodness we were at home when it started to leak, or else it would have been everywhere. I collect nutcrackers, I have a ton of them. My mom bought this one for me...how cute is he! I actually have a life size nutcracker that is taller than me! I will show him off at Christmas. Jacobean plant is finally blooming
Zinnia from seed. Last year by this time I had so many zinnia's, my plants were loaded with blooms. That hasn't been the case this year, the lack of water has really kept the plants from thriving.
former blue lacecap has now turned to pink
Hosta bloom, not sure which hosta this is
Gerbera Daisy. I can tell how dry it is by this bloom. This gerbera has bloomed about 5 times this year, this one being the 6th. Normally it is deep red (you can actually see this same gerbera on my side bar), now it is light pink...need some rain soon.
I left this off my junk post last week! Thought I would throw it in today. These are some old copper tins that I hung on the fence. Some of them were my moms, and the others my aunt picked up for me.
Here is a gerbera daisy from the front yard. It is doing great
another zinnia from seed
I love the color of this one
my old solar lights I had out front died, so we picked these up at one of our 1,000 trips to Lowe's this weekend!
They are solar LED lights. The water on top of them blows my mind! I have no idea where it came from, it appears to be much more than dew! The entire front lawn was wet with morning, but the back yard was dry! Strange. Could we have gotten a light rain this morning in the front yard only? I will have to ask the neighbors and see.
sorry the camera fogged up, the joy of having the camera inside, and bringing it outside....always fogs up! But here is another zinnia from seed. I really like this one, it looks different than the others
Saturday The Hunter comes in with this dragonfly on his finger! I was assuming it was dead, but it was alive. The Hunter is like Dr Doolittle, all animal love him! He said he had just walked out and saw it flying around and stick his finger out and it landed on him! Go figure! He had enough time to walk inside, find me, let me grab the camera and then walk back outside with it! As soon as I took the picture he flew off
Tide is doing great, Kiki however is not! I moved her belongings to the guest room, and until last night she had not come past the living room. She just sits in the hall and watched Tide. She finally ventured into the living room yesterday and looked around. Tide was asleep and she just creeped around him like he was going to attack her! She takes scaredy cat to a whole new level! This morning she came into the living room, and almost made it to the kitchen, when she scared herself by tripping over a shoe and ran back down the hall! The Hunter picked her up and brought her into the living room near Tide and let her watch him. She just hisses at him. I picked Tide up and sat him near her....bad mistake! I thought she was going to have a coronary! He lunged at him to bite him! She got down and ran back into the hall! Her safe place! Tide has yet to go into the hallway. He will not cross a threshold, clearly he is smart. I was hoping if I could get them close, she could smell him and see he was not going to hurt her, but that plan back fired! Maybe tonight she will come around!
