Today dawned another new and yet better morning! After a quick shower, I took a nice long walk around our pool patio garden. I was thrilled to actually smell a gardenia!
My Echinacea is just beginning to peak:
I'm feeling lucky that I've got several white Echinacea seedlings in my garden this year.
Surprisingly enough, several of my Nikko Blues are blooming pink this year. C says that Barker has had something to do with that!
This Hydrangea (below) dates back to Kristin's high school days in the Key Club (a banquet table decoration). I was sentimental enough to take cuttings from our last house and start them here at this house. I am happy to report that their blossoms are very similar to those of my Nana's hydrangeas: such a sweet memory!
Money Plant: another sweet memory of my Nana! I love how the seed pods and leaves are turning a bit red/violet with a hint of chartreuse.
I spent a good part of this morning just vegging: watching "The Secret Life of Bees" and beading on a soy silk fusion piece that I started several years ago. Thanks again for all of your well wishes. I can't tell you how much it means to me! I'm doing really well....and even breathing through my nose on occasion!
