New Home

I moved.
Not me personally but the blog. I finally gave up here. I couldn't seem to fix the problems I was having so I am now in a new home in blogland. Come visit over there. http://cindeesgardenoflife.blogspot.com/

Flower Power

 
Found this one and only Lady Slipper Orchid at the store.
I am sure it won't last long but it sure is pretty and I will enjoy it while it lasts.(-:
 
 
 
 
Before that though, I stopped in and had my ear pierced again.
I am addicted to these piercings I think...(-:
I had a nice 14kt diamond to use but the post was to long so I have to get it cut down and after the piercing heals I can have it put in. Until then I am using the blue stone. I love diamonds though. Oh well at least I got it done and I am happy(-:

I'm Watching You


 
And he was. I was walking the dogs this morning and all of a sudden there was a loud deep Who Whooooooo I looked and there he was sitting in an oak tree next to where I was walking. He was saying Good Morning to us! It made my day so I had to share. So many days are not so good for me lately that having this little surprise really made it special. I hope you are all enjoying your last days of Summer!!!

New Flowers






Stopped at the Shingletown Fire Department Annual Fun Day last Saturday and look what I got from Simply Plants!
I am keeping them hidden on my front porch so my new friend does not eat them. Yes he is still here. I am wondering if he thinks I take in strays or something?

Yup and as you might imagine he was very hungry when he arrived too. Nothing went untouched. He slept most of the afternoon and then around dinner time got up and started eating again. What can you do? Glad someone is enjoying it!

End Of July

Well not much happening here except blazing hot Summer temperatures. Normal for this time of year but unwanted. So basically keeping things watered is about all I can do. However on a recent trip to a local nursery I found this awesome cup/saucer full of succulents for an even more awesome price, so I grabbed it and ran for the door.(-: I added the mushrooms that I had already. I think it all goes together quite nicely.

This is a whirly thing that sits on your roof for ventilation purposes. For me though it adds a nice planter to my garden. I filled it with moss and then planted a petunia in it for this year. Pretty cool and of course a big thanks to my brother for dumpster diving for me(-:

These days not having my Dad around is really a difficult thing for me and I would be happy if he was here saying I can't do this or that believe me.
But...
What is good about not having him around to tell me what I can't do? Well this would be one thing. He would be saying...Oh that old piece of junk why would you want that? I would say well it would make a nice planter. He would just shake his head. Since he isn't here to say I can't do it, then of course that is the first thing I had to do. I had my brother drag the old seeder up to my house and then I had my son get me a load of loam with the backhoe. He is having a fun time playing with all the equipment. He does really well with it actually. He must get that from his Grandpa.
Anyhow...after I got the thing filled with loam I dug holes and filled them with potting soil and then  I planted it with mums. I got them at the 99 cent store. So hopefully they will be o.k. and grow and fill in. They looked really healthy and were not root bound at all. I think it turned out pretty nice.
I am sure my Dad is looking down on me and still shaking his head, but smiling at the way it all came together. Thanks Dad! I miss you!
