and it’s still there, I think. It'll come later. You know - my typical post containing a story or a crazy and simple message. But, time raced ahead of me and I ran out of energy. So, instead of my regular flackery (is flackery a word?), here are some images of the day. Birds later, hopefully including a hummingbird. No luck yet.
The water hibiscus in the pond has grown 12 inches in a week. I’m not exaggerating! Its scarlet blooms will be breathtaking.
See the bee on the far left? It escaped from the bloom on the wild raspberries that surround the bird feeders. I don’t know what type of bee it is.
Spiderwort about ready to explode in fabulous color.
I don't remember the name of these hardy succulents.
The wildflower beds for hummingbirds and butterflies I raked and planted seed two weeks ago are showing success!
These are FAKE greenery baskets I bought for my front porch this weekend. Go ahead, all you gardeners out there and GASP! Nothing grows on my hill facing west during North Carolina summers. The sun sizzles and bakes the hardiest plants to a crisp within a few hours. So, go ahead and laugh, but I like them.
And they’re easy.
I need easy.
Simplify my life. Yeah.
