The plastic pitcher is all I could find at the old house to hold water for the lilies that I picked. The one lily is of the stargazer family and its fragrance is almost overpowering. I set them outside on the deck over night incase they were the cause of our sinus problems. They are back in the house today. They all have been transferred into tow glass vases now.
I keep digging hosta plants as I had so many and they multiplied so much. A sample off the side doesn't really hurt the look of the original plant. Some say that you can move them when your spade is sharp. My spade is dull, short handled, and a sand shovel. I like using it for that and will move it to the new house when I quit using it.
It is a "before and after" time as I dug into the archives to find this photo. I really didn't have much hope of things looking good as it seemed like I started planting way too late.
As of last evening, this is how much it has grown. I had watered it a lot even on rain predicted days. I need to get onto the fertilizer kick now. My tomatoes are half the size of the neighbors but all of my plants do have blossoms on them.
We hung curtains in the spare upstairs bedroom today and put on a new bedspread. The room is needing pillows and some pictures hung on the wall and then all will be good. The dresser still has dozens of glass items siting on it. We will decide what to do on another day o4 in another week.
We are looking forward to the end of the moving but that is so far away. We make progress everyday and that is good.
Thank you for stopping by today.
