In honor of Nana and her full, wonderful life which includes 5 children, 15 grandchildren, 25 great grandchildren and 8 great great grandchildren. She is still sharp as a tack and eats like a truck driver.
Seriously, I am not complaining about the weekend. Our weather has been fabulous this spring, and I am thankful for both the weather and family obligations. Life is good!
To stick with my gardning theme, here are a few garden updates. The Peachleaf Bellflower are still going strong and Geranium Rozanne have kicked it up a notch. The baby pink Lupine is a seedling from Lupines that grew in this spot a few years ago:
These pretty cornflower blue flowers are a mystery plant - I assume they came from a wildflower seed packet. Does anyone know what this is?
The Knock Out Roses are making me a very happy camper so far this year. I planted 10 in my yard at the end of the summer last year, after seeing a gorgeous picture of them on the Dave's Garden website (if you haven't discovered this site yet, check it out. It is my go to place when researching plants... reviews from real people and real pictures of the plants in their actual gardens, not the super duper shots in the catalogs). These are supposed to bloom all summer - so far so good! This is the Double Pink Knock Out:
Signing off in the hopes that in my after-work-garden-walkthrough, I will discover some new blooms that have come out in celebration of the sunshine today.
