Hi all. Still here. I've not been well. Sore throat, passed it off to allergies. Then add body aches, especially elbows, shoulders and hips, passed it off to yardwork. Then add fever...uh oh! Used my Zicam nasal swabs and was better the next morning...thank God! Had me scared for a minute! Even with being as careful as I am, I picked up some bug! Just glad the Zicam nipped it in the bud for me!
It's cooler than normal here but nice. I've been getting rid of a lot of things that were out in the yard or on the patio. Gave away a bunch of flower pots...put some things in the trash...trying to remove any possible breeding grounds for ticks and mosquitos. I'm determined to enjoy my yard this year!! Might even buy a bug zapper.
Star of Bethlehem is blooming...low growing white six petaled stars! They've multiplied! The Trillium are blooming, though you have to get very close to appreciate the subtle yellow petals and the mottled leaves. The Honesty is nearly done blooming and the 'silver dollar' seed pods are forming. The lilies are getting bigger and the buds look full of promise for tons of color soon. I've moved all of the canna plants out onto the patio. The dry root ones are doing much better than the ones stored over winter in the pots. Now I know which method will be best for the plants, although much more work for me!
Hope everyone has a peaceful day.
