Thursday ALREADY!

Busy day today! I got up early, all inspired to get out to the studio and start dyeing some things, but Barker and I needed to do a quick hike around the golf course. 6:30 AM in the summertime is such a peaceful and glorious hour! I just love it!! So, then we got to do some dyeing and some waxing, and then I had a request for a "cell cell" for a very special friend! I'm thrilled and honored to do it! Had lunch with my dear friend Joani today, and that was a pleasant break in my work time. The cell cell is almost finished - just have to sew up a few seams and drop it in the mail in the morning!

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

PEACE!!!

Judy, See if you can find a hydrangea called "Endless Summer". It blooms on new growth, even if frozen to the ground (which mine did and is now blooming). I was recently told that the peach colored Echinacea has a wonderful aroma, so I am hunting around for that. Cheers.

Thanks Jeannie,
I have two Endless Summer Hydrangeas, and neither is blooming this summer.
Thanks for the heads up on the peach Echinacea. One of my neighbors has some around her mailbox. I will ask her where she found them.

Ha! it took me several tries and a calculator. Have I ever told you that I am math impaired?

I have two hydrangea bushes. One was transplanted and is making a comeback. I'll try to get some photos. They must be a hardy variety because we get freezing temps here.

Hi! I made the test and it turned out correct. =)))))

5x2=10+5=15x50=750+1757=2507-1951=556

Eat out five times a week and I'm 56 years old ;)

I just wonder: Who has figured all this out?
