Here's a pic of our one and only hydrangea blossom of the summer:
Our Easter freeze zapped all of the buds except for this one....but isn't it lovely! I just adore hydrangeas, and have planted quite a few at this house....pinks, whites, blues, lacecaps, etc. I am so envious when we are in Atlanta and see them blooming away! Oh well..........next year! Do you have hydrangeas, and if so, are they lovely right now?
Here's a stand of my Echinacea. I wish they had a perfume. The white ones are slowly reseeding themselves, and that makes me happy. The brown stalk over to the right is a goneby foxglove, which I am letting reseed. There's also a Verbena Bonariensis on the right. I love those too, but mine always seem to get so straggly.
And here's the beginning of my Phlox:
You can also see the plump Star Gazer Lily buds, just waiting a few more days to perfume the garden.
I'm going to share with you a little quiz I received in my emailbox from my dear cousin Paula. It's quite amazing, so just follow the directions and have fun with it:
YOUR AGE BY DINER & RESTAURANT MATH
This is pretty neat. DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN F IRST!
It takes less than a minute. Work this out as you read.Be sure you don't read the bottom until you've worked it out!This is not one of those waste of time things, it's fun.
1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to go out to eat. (more than once but less than 10)
2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)
3. Add 5
4. Multiply it by 50
5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1757 ....If you haven't, add 1756.
6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.You should have a three digit number The first digit of this was your original number (I.e., how many times you want to go out to restaurants in a week.)
The next two numbers are YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!)
THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2007) IT WILL EVER WORK, SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS
