This morning started at 5:45 a.m. when I got up to check the weather. I decided I wanted to run a race this a.m. and the forecast called for rain. It was a pleasant 62 degrees and cloudy but no rain. Yippee!!!
What's that you ask? How did I do?Not too bad for an old woman! And let me tell you this was a tough, tough course. I don't train on hills and guess what? Hill after hill after hill. Somehow between talking to God and to myself I made it thru. Not to brag but I was the sixth female to cross the line and yes there were more than 6 runners!
When I got home I needed to head immediately to the garden for chores.Remember these little pots? As you can see I planted rose colored million bells in the yellow, strawberries in the orange and an orange million bell in the green.The gaura is starting to open it's pretty pink flowers. I can see why they call this "whirling butterflies".I had to show this azalea again. It's just one big, puffy rose colored shrub that so far the heavy rains haven't destroyed. I have a grouping of three in the front of the house and I love them.These little cheddar pinks were planted late fall last year and are doing well this spring. I like the sweet smell they have.Then I wanted to show my snapdragons. They are just now starting to bloom. The color is a little more darker than the picture.
Well that's it for this Saturday. Hope everyone is having a great one!
