I took a trip outside and too many photos Saturday evening and I don't have the excuse of not having photos. I just didn't blog yesteerday. It is funny that I did check everyone elses postings in the late late afternoon but I didn't notice that I had not posted. I guess I took a day off by accident.
I bought two packs of seed of a different kind. They are good but they aren't the bright and showy ones that I usually grow. I did plant a few of last year's seed and they didn't do well in germination. There are a couple of them that did sprout so I will have photos of those later on.
I bought some new seed with lots of goodies that are in it. The doves are really enjoying it and the sparrows are liking the spare few seeds of millet in it.
The morning glories are doing well but they are not in sight when I photograph in the late afternoon. I do like the spiral shapes of the buds befroe the open. It is a magical design that is displayed before it unfolds.
I planted five dahlias this spring and the results are now being displayed. There are two other colors in the group that are different than the red. I will share them latter.
The flowers look like they are doing great but we are still in a drought. It is said that we still are almost seven inches short of rainfall for the year. My front garden shows that as the cone flowers and Susans look dried up. I have been too bush to water them.
The old place is being shown by the realtor. I am still removing the last of the things that I need to get out of the house. On Saturday I did not have a lot of things left to bring home. I did have a neighbor help me bring out of the basement a small dresser that was my wife's from her farm home. I needed the help to get it up the basement stairs. He took one of my window air conditioners and his wife wanted some of my cement blocks that I had next to the basement door. There are two parts of an old one room school house desks in the basement that I guess I will gather. I would like to give that away. We had no bites on the house at this time as the vulture flippers are waiting for the price to drop. They seem to want it for free as I had a conversation with one of the interested buyers.
Thanks for checking in today.
