- The spring potting is underway. Company is coming, so I was motivated to get started. This is my very shady back porch, so I've got Woodland Fern, Hosta and New Guinea Impatien there. And I always love my shy angel that sits on bricks from my maternal grandparents' home. When I was there for the last time - I walked around their back yard, saying goodbye to it and saw some bricks stacked against the house. I asked my mom if could have them - and I've made good use of them, I think.
- Out front - I named this photo "Lantana and friends" because that's the only name I remember - there are other type plants in that planter on the right. And I do remember from posting about Lantana last year, that it is not revered in other parts of the world, as it is in the southern US, but it reminds me of home, so in the pot it went. (But it does kind of smell bad - maybe it'll keep the mosquitoes at bay.) :)
- When I opened the front door this morning, neighbor Cali there licked my toe. She always does that when I walk out in flip flops. :) The photos I took of her are comical. They are all action shots - she never stops moving, so I had a hard time getting a good one, but in this last one, she only had eyes for the door her person went into for a moment and there she stood until neighbor Rhonda came back out.
My sister Jo and her daughter, niece Amanda are on their way to visit from Florida, for some city happenings. I'm off from work today, and excited to be with family. Have a great weekend, everyone!
