Saturday Show Offs..........
I am out early in the morning and I discovered that this particular daylily closes up at night. By the time the sun is up they are all back opened showing off their colors.
When I do a search for a spelling of daylily, the two words are combined. When I type it, blogger things it is misspelled. That drives me insane on some days as when I think I have the correct spelling, blogger just does not know the word. It isn't in the memory banks.
There will be photos of hollyhocks this summer. I don't have many of them but the ones that I do have are tall and stout with many buds on them. The ones that I had out on the corner didn't get rescued. I don't think that I even tried to move them. They were smashed down.
So the mayor says the plan has changed one more time and they are going to contract a company to come in and put a concrete pipe at the bottom of it and bring back all our dirt. I am skeptical but will wait and see. I do know that others in town have had that system where there are inlets for the water to enter and the water flows through the pipes. It has been that way for years. So maybe I will have new pictures sometime to show my ditch going away. I won't be holding my breath until it happens as I don't look so good being blue faced.
I mowed the yard this morning before I started blogging. It was a cool 70 degrees F. when I started and it did warm up quickly after an hour of work.
I still have lots of sucker trees that need to be trimmed out of everywhere. That will be on another day. I refuse to let them bother me.
My tomatoes that I started from seed in March are now looking like this. They are planted along the pet fence, opposite side of the pen. They have grown with leaps and bounds with all the warm weather. I try to water them most every day. There are 12 plants along that side of the fence. I am going to call it the neighborhood patch and as people to just come and help themselves. There are two different families that could use them. I have another eight or more of tomatoes planted out by the garden shed. I couldn't kill off the hand grown started plants.
No plans for today but picking up odd chores to do and maybe rest. It will reach a point where I won't want to go outside and I can leave that off of my list of things to do. I hope all are doing well this weekend and thanks for checking in on my blog today.
