Lovely day yesterday, visiting beloved friends in the afternoon and then having a perfect dinner with others in the evening. We are so fortunate.
Look at this? Could it be more wonderful? Roger Blakely and Ceal Allen's home. Just stunning.
And I'm honored, beyond words, that Roger and Ceal would have one of my photos in their home. I love them so.
Then a gorgeous dinner with our beloved Boo and Doug. Or Doo and Boug as Ernie sometimes calls them. He does amuse himself. An admirable trait. It just feels like being home when we are with them.
In garden news, our yard is the worst it has EVER been. Weeds, weeds, weeds.
I have yet to pull out my diseased coneflower. Does anyone know if I am ok to plant more coneflowers, or will the disease be left in the dirt???
I didn't plant enough zinnias this year. Only one row! I was going to plant more behind them but got behind between Ernie being gone and rain, so I weakened and just bought some cosmos from Prairie Gardens. Usually, I plant cosmos from seed, but I was lazy and just threw these in. The thing is, the damn things don't grow. It's incredibly odd…even when I've planted so-called dwarf cosmos, they always get huge. These things just sit there.
Not my best gardening year. Oh well.
I like my little Bachelor's Buttons despite the surrounding weeds.
Today will be quiet. I have to spend some time working to get everything set for when I'll be out of town this week with the Big Boy.
