Good morning. Today is going to be another nice day. Yesterday was warm and sunny, and I spent hours out on the porch. My phone app says we're going to be getting rain starting mid afternoon. And more tomorrow.
Yesterday I noticed that my yellow irises are starting to bloom. I'll have to take a photo today to share. The new columbine plant is getting ready to bloom too. Deanne was here the other day, re-potting plants and making sure everything looked really pretty. Our new garden birds came. Here's a photo of my blue Heron.
I have a couple pink flamingoes in one of the little gardens, and I think we're going to move them over here near the heron. I really like seeing the birds near my porch. It sort of makes it feel a bit tropical.
My little mosquito plant is not looking very good. When it arrived in the mail, it was in pretty bad shape. I've picked the dead leaves off, so now it is just a stem trying to become something. Here's a photo before I plucked all the dead stuff off it.
It's looking cloudy outside, so I guess that rain is really coming our way. Well, my car is covered with green from all the new leaves so I'm hoping that the rain gives my car a good washing. That's the only downfall from having so many trees. When all the little leaf seed pods start opening, everything gets a green coating.
My plans for today don't include much other than doing a bit of crocheting. Both of the wraps that I'm working on have less than twenty rows to go till it's time to start making the pockets. When they are finished, I'll see if Deanne will model them so that I can take photos.
Well, that's about all my news for today. So, till next time, Y'all stay safe and have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
