We are going to have a rainy day today. After all the rain we've had....the lawns are just starting to slow down their growth and look a little dry. It is hot this morning and the AC is on. I love to have the windows open and we will as soon as it cools down a bit.
I took the hanging baskets down so they could get some rain. I didn't notice any Japanese beetles on my plants yesterday. The bath with "simple green" seems to have done the trick. The only thing that I don't like about using it is the blossoms on the petunias look like they are marbled.
The finches have set up their household over the light fixture. They are busy flying in and out when we open the door. They will just have to get used to us....we live here.
The nasturtiums are getting bigger, but no flowers. How long does it take...Audra wants to know?
Waiting patiently for the Madonna Lilies and the Star Gazers to open up. Speaking of lilies....I was driving by the bank a couple of days ago... and the parking lot behind it was empty of cars. As I went by, there was a flash of color in the corner of my left eye. Whoa what was that? I went around the block and entered the lot. There are lilies everywhere. A thick row as long as the lot of beautiful lilies. All of the same kind. At the ends of the lot...beautiful full snowball bushes. I thought to myself a hidden treasure in my town that I'm sure many people have just driven by without seeing. I came home and picked up my husband, so he could see this beauty too. (didn't pick up the camera though) I have told some of my neighbors about it. We went for a long drive last night and I was thinking....here we are, as are many people, looking for something wonderful to see...and we have it in our own backyard.
