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…

A little this and that

A little this and that

This week is creeping by.  Yesterday was sooo slow I thought I was going to die.  This morning I wake up, get to work only to find out the power is out AGAIN!  Ughh.  I turned around and came home.  It is so nice to have a laptop now.  I have everything I need should I need to work from home. I might have made a little time to do my nails. 🙂 You may remember this pic. Well this…

A rose by any other name

A rose by any other name

Would still be a rose. 😉  And currently there is a new knock-out rose bush sitting on my deck.  I decided to buy one over the weekend.  I talked to my mom and she assured me they are very hardy and love lots of sun.  Since our deck gets full sun most of the day I thought it would be a great for it to live.  Plus this way I will see it and I might actually remember to water…

The “Southern” is coming out!

The “Southern” is coming out!

What I mean by this is the “southern” love of gardening is starting to come out. My whole life I have been all bah humbug about gardening. Honestly I couldn’t really think of anything I really cared less for but now, now I have the bug. It started with a few random plants in the house. Since I’ve managed to actually keep a couple alive for a few years I’m starting to get more adventurous. You may remember the herbal…

It’s alive!

It’s alive!

Do you guys see this?  It’s a new leaf on my orchid.  I really wasn’t sure how this thing was doing.  Last night I pulled it down to water it and there it was, this tiny new leaf.  Yay!  I am really proud of myself.  I’ve managed to keep it alive since February.  Hopefully it will bloom again.

Foto Friday – Week 1

Foto Friday – Week 1

It’s finally here people Foto Friday!  WOO HOO!  I know you have been anxiously waiting all week!  😉  I’m been anxiously waiting for this week to end!     As you can see Basil and Sweet Mint don’t look so hot.  Thankfully the deli we went to for lunch had basil out front and it kind of looked the same as mine so I’ll run with it for now.  Lots of water daily!   Close up.   Our deck light….

Hello Wine Wednesday!

Hello Wine Wednesday!

Hello wine Wednesday!  Regular Wednesday you suck!  Ughh!  Today has definitely been “one of those days”!  It’s mostly all boring work stuff that no one cares to read about so I won’t bore you with the details.  Let’s just say I was pretty happy to have a nice cheap bottle of wine in the fridge.  I definitely needed a glass when I got home.  Now I’m sitting outside with the kiddos enjoying another glass while Matt grills some yummy delicious…
