The Jacobean plant is still blooming, and doing well. It doesn't seem to be getting any larger, but its blooming so I am happy. This is the new kitty....Peaches. She has peach spots on her, so I thought Peaches was appropriate. She loves her new home and is as happy as can be!
Cardinal Spheres has been blooming. It also isn't very big. Last year it was very large, this year it is about half the size it was last year. I think the drought we had earlier in the summer may have affected it.
Remember when I made the pumpkin topiary with the real pumpkins, and they rotted 7 days later? I dumped them into a bag, because I didn't want pumpkin seeds in my flower beds. Well guess what.......a few of them made it into the flower bed and look what has popped up!
Zinnias slowly fading away.
Black Eyed Susans are thriving right now.
I was going through some things in the guest bedroom and pulled some tissue paper out of an old gift bag. Kiki managed to find it, and decided it was a comfortable place to take a nap! I am very shocked and saddened today by the sudden passing of a co-worker. I received a call this morning that he had passed in his sleep. He wasn't even 60 years old. But when its your time, there isn't much you can do. He had gone to have a stress test yesterday, and I am just shocked that he died last night. Death is never easy, and no one is ever prepared. I feel blessed to have known him. He had a gift with kids. I dread seeing the kids Thursday and letting them know that he is gone. He was a big part of some of those kids lives, and I hope that those kids well keep up what he has instilled in them, and better their lives on behalf of him.
