While the cats away, I'm supposed to sleep????? NO!
Here I am just a few days home from vacation and I am just wanting to be a bum! Sleeping a lot, like I have some strange form of sleeping sickness. I have all these ideas for actually planting things out in the brutal heat, and then I say, "Oh, forget about it"! I am really looking forward to fall when we can actually go outside and ENJOY it! LOL. I have come to realize how much I like white flowers with a bright red, orange or pink with it! This picture demonstrates how absolutely stunning the combination can be! I found these planted outside our hotel in Tipton, Ga., and had to take a picture. I think Tootsie will really love these, for some reason, as well as most all the rest of you fellow bloggers!!! Tootsie is a flower girl though, and her blog shows that. I have never been much of a flower person, but I have to admit that if the plants that produce the flowers do not need ME to keep them alive, I feel I can manage to have a few flowers! The thing that has made this clear to me is the fact that I sat that pot of white blooming crown of thorns next to 2 very bright and colorful moon cactus outside in my screenroom, where I see them everytime I look out there...and I realized I REALLY LIKED THE WHITE NEXT TO THE COLOR.
My thoughts started racing to how could I get this outside without the use of water. Well...I mentioned it to my Mom (the sheer genius, truthfully, she is)...and she said, "Well, I have some white periwinkles you can have"! I looked outside along my fence which is lined with all green bushes, and envisioned the white periwinkles and in front some red and pink crown of thorns! I LOVE this idea. BUT...do you think I can get out there and do the work in this heat? Maybe in the evening I can. I do want to have something to show when my husband returns from visiting his family in Shreveport, LA. He is gone a week, and while the cats away, I am supposed to play...but all I want to do is sit in air conditioning!!! This is sad. All I can think is that I must be getting to old to hardly function anymore! LOL.
