Today is the day I write about a little of this and a little of that. Well, that’s actually what I do most days, isn’t it?
I’m so excited about another red transferware creamer I found on Etsy. It was a very good price. And I just love it.
It’s a few inches bigger all around than the other one, and happened in fact to be cheaper. And I was all over that!
I love that each piece of transferware tends to depict scenes from villages. How charming.
Now for my next tidbit.
The Irises Are Blooming:
I have waited and waited for them to bloom. Seemed to take forever. I’d see other irises blooming all over town and mine were a bit behind.
But they make up for it with their sheer loveliness. The lavender and white combo is just so pretty and feminine.
I believe one of you sent them to me years ago. Thank you!
I only have this one clump. But this is the first year there have been this many blooms.
I’d try taking dirt away from the surface of ground around them, then putting it back. Finally I think they just decided to bloom.
I’ve been going to PT twice a week for my back and they’ve also been working on my ankle.
I think they got a little zealous with both because my back and ankle hurt worse all day and night than before I went yesterday. Or of course it could also be the exercises they’re teaching me to strengthen them.
So I think I’m going to tell them they can ice the ankle, but otherwise leave it alone. I know how to exercise it.
Geez, I have to be able to walk. Especially with Charlie not being able to climb up or down now.
The salvia that managed to make it through the hard winter is turning purple.
Salvia is a wonderful plant because nature just adores it. Did you know it’s actually part of the mint family?
Another plus of salvia is that the aromatic foliage makes it very resistant to deer and rabbits. And the nectar-rich flowers attract pollinators, including honey bees, butterflies and hummingbirds
All great reasons to have salvia in your garden.
