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(-:

Old Seeder Planted

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.
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!

Happy July

Getting back to normal here as best as I can. Took a venture out on the weekend. Got to see a movie. Oz the Great and Powerful. Also went to the store and found this cute huge cup/saucer, rock and mushroom. Planted with Semps.

My Mom is doing o.k. Had hip replacement and is at rehab. Slow process.
