Pogo Sized Lawn Furniture

June 26, 2018

Good morning.  Today is really lovely with lots of sunshine and temps in the seventies.  I think Pogo and I will sit out on the porch today after lunch.  I have planting materials out there that I want to remove.  I think I'll set them in a box in the greenhouse. 

I need to vacuum and wipe the furniture down on the porch again.  The wind we had a few days ago really covered everything with a layer of dirt.  So I guess that will be my project for today.  I had other plans, but this really needs to be done. 

While we were shopping over the weekend, I found this  really adorable doggie lounge chair.  It even comes with an umbrella.  Isn't this darling?  I don't have anywhere to put it, but if I did it would be great for Pogo.

While we were there, I picked up some more petunias.  They were only four for ten dollars.  While we were walking around shopping, the store announced that the plants were being marked down to just one dollar each.  Wow!  I just saved six dollars!  These are the four colors that I bought.

The plants were in need of a little TLC, so I've put them in the greenhouse for a while.  Soon, I'll re-pot them.   While we were checking out the garden stuff, I found this really delightful garden fairy.  I just couldn't resist getting her.  She can oversee the plants that are on the porch.

Speaking of the porch plants, last month I came across a few old begonia bulbs from last year that I had misplaced and never planted.  I put them into a pot with dirt anyway, just in case they would still grow.  So far, three of the bulbs are growing.  This is a photo of the tallest one, resting against the screen and catching the sunlight.  I'm thinking that if I hang the pot, this will make a pretty hanging plant.  Well, maybe after the other two bulbs (flowers) start getting bigger. 

Right now, Pogo is airing out his vocal chords.  One of the dwarfs just came home in a cab, and Pogo has to let them know that he is keeping an eye on them.  That's my boy! 

Well, I think I need to get out on the porch and start vacuuming before I talk my self out of it.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

The doggy lounger is just adorable! I'm a sucker for that kind of thing also. Every time I see a cat bed or chair I want to bring it home, but have to resist due to the small space. Those people out there that design this stuff really know what they're doing to appeal to the owners of furry children.

The plants are nice, it's always fun to add some color and I bet they bounce right back with some TLC. The garden angel is an especially nice touch.

It's raining here ...again. All this soggy weather is getting my spirits down, maybe that's why I enjoy the desert so much.

You have a great day.

Your begonias are lovely. I have no luck with them. I like all the flowers that you bought. And what a bargain!
