Ready for fall?

Ready for fall?

I am working from home today since I didn’t sleep well last night.  I’m hoping to squeeze in a lunchtime nap.  A little while ago I ran to the mailbox and noticed how nice it was outside.  I LOVE being able to have our windows open.  To me, there is nothing better!  So when I came back in I decided to open the kitchen window.  There is a tiny breeze that I feel every so often and it’s making me…

Picture Post

I’m running out of room

I’m running out of room

For plants in the yard. Ya’ll this is craziness! I have NEVER been a gardener but lately I can’t seem to get enough plants. Saturday I ran to Lowe’s and picked up some cute Coral Reef Sedum ground cover to replace the old, yucky, spotty monkey grass. I had no idea what I wanted when I went to Lowe’s but this cute stuff caught my eye and for $10.00 a flat I couldn’t pass it up. Yesterday I started working…
