Coloring Club Plus (minus coloring) 10/12/19

Yesterday afternoon, I was unexpectedly called away to help out friends and then ended up spending the night out of town.  Got back home around 11 a.m. this morning.  Mlady was peering around the corner at the end of the hall to make sure it was me.  Her fur was all puffed out when she… Continue reading Coloring Club Plus (minus coloring) 10/12/19

Doodads — Cherry Point Labyrinth/Mandala

https://youtu.be/weM2umnTEUY This is going to be a long post, with lots of pictures and videos of the labyrinth/mandala I visited yesterday. I call it labyrinth/mandala because it does not meet the criteria of labyrinth that I know of, which is one-way-in-one-way-out, but it does look like a lot of mandalas I have colored. It doesn't… Continue reading Doodads — Cherry Point Labyrinth/Mandala

Friday Evening Doodads — yard update

It's time I did another update on the yard.  Remember when I was complaining that all of the Asiatic lily variety pack were the same (beautiful) shade of pink?  Well those ones were the early birds and have come and gone.  Right now some of all of the rest are open, and oh my goodness… Continue reading Friday Evening Doodads — yard update

Monday Doodads — more yard pics

Don't think I'm ungrateful.  These giant beautiful lily blossoms are to be enjoyed and appreciated.  They are so fragrant!  I saw a hummingbird moth at them for at least a few minutes yesterday.  What is troubling is that this was supposed to be a 20-bulb VARIETY pack, with each variety chosen by color and name. … Continue reading Monday Doodads — more yard pics

Thursday Doodads — Flora & Fauna out back

An abrupt early afternoon thunderstorm blew through here and then it was back to hot and muggy.  Not nearly enough rain came down.  It's staying in the air.  I did get a chance to walk out back today and check on things.  Mostly good, some things of concern.  Some pictures and videos.  Hope you enjoy… Continue reading Thursday Doodads — Flora & Fauna out back

Saturday Doodads — Garden Tour

Today a friend and I toured 8 different gardens in 80+ degree heat.  The temp in the car said 88 on the drive home.  Thankfully some of most of the gardens were in shade which helped.  Before going on to the pictures, I have to say a universal plant in each of the yards was… Continue reading Saturday Doodads — Garden Tour

Friday Doodads — The yard

It's been in the 80's all week, which means too hot to do much outside for most of the day.  I just went and got the mail out of the box, deadheaded the hanging basket of petunias and verbenas the kids got me for my birthday -- yes, I just had a birthday, yay --… Continue reading Friday Doodads — The yard
