It is a blurry shot of purple spike flowers that I inherited at the new place. I discovered that when they get too dry, that they just lay down. Once they were laying down, I added them to my list of things to water. Over night they are all standing again. Our part of the state has been declared to be in a drought zone now. With all the spring rains, I would never have thought we would run out of moisture. You can see by the grass that we are going dormant making it look like it were middle August in Iowa. I haven't looked up the name of the flower yet but I have seen them growing it other people's garden.
Also living in the house helps us to know what areas that will never grow anything. It kind of goes the same way with hanging pictures and placing furniture. The lower level is clearing out and most of the paintings are hung. There are still a few areas that we haven't made decisions on furniture placement so the walls are not decorated.
The basket bunny sits in the entryway as an accent piece. It escaped the dumpster one day and I am glad it didn't get tossed. I gave this as a gift to my then girlfriend, now wife. The basket fits in with the wood bench and does seem to move from floor to bench as we see fit to place him.
I now have tomatoes on the vines. The patio tomato was the first one to put out a real tomato. It will have time yet to grow larger. I have one kind of tomato that has pear shaped small tomatoes on it. That vine has little ones all over it right now that look like tear drops. They need to grow larger.
It is hot again today. We cooled off to 79 degrees F. by morning and we will get up to the upper 80s. That is cooler than yesterday by 10 degrees. I have an errand to run, up to the old house this afternoon and hopefully we will get to eat out tonight. I hope everyone will have a good day. Thanks for stopping by today.
