Good morning. Today will be cloudy with a slight breeze and temps around 61F degrees. Sounds like a pretty good day to work in the yard. Maybe plant some tomatoes??
Yesterday my friend Ellen came for a visit, and we took Pogo and went shopping at Home Depot. I looked at all the floor tiles but did not find anything I liked. Next we looked for the little white fence edging to put around the flower gardens. Of course, they did not have any of that either. But we did find another pretty little fence edge so I bought that.
The fence materials are at the back of the garden center, so of course we had to walk around the whole garden center. Oh my, the trouble I could have got into here!! I did my best to be good, but I couldn't resist buying a few new plants. I'll see about taking some photos of them today.
We left the garden center and stopped by Burger King for some take out lunch. Then we headed for the park, where we sat and watched the geese and ducks while we enjoyed our lunch. All in all, we had a fun time out together.
Later, after I got home, it was time to take Joe grocery shopping. Not even halfway through this shopping, I ran out of steam. As soon as I got home and put the groceries away, I put on my jammies and curled up in my comfy lounge chair. Ohhhhhhh, this felt sooooo good!!
Pogo and I had a late supper, and after supper I did a bit of crocheting on the Scarlet afghan. I finally reached the halfway mark. Here's a photo of this afghan.
Today, I'm hoping to plant the new tomato plants and flowers that I bought yesterday. I also want to take a trip to Lowes to look at their floor tiles and check out the garden center (of course!).
I have some photos from my garden to share today. This first photo is my little lilac bush. I love lilacs and can't wait for this plant to get bigger.
For Mother's Day, DIL Janet brought me a whole basket of calla lily plants which have already been planted in one of the small gardens. Isn't this pretty?
Well now it's time to get dressed to go outside and play in the dirt. Yes, yes, yes! So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
