Happy July!

got up this morning, late...
but we still managed a Paris run...
and I found a few things...
for DH...
coleus and caladium...

the caladium will go in a pot and sit in front of the coleus...

with some begonias scattered around...

then I found this cross solar light and I just had to have it...
its so pretty after dark...

and then I got this for DH...
a late birthday present...
its a willow tree...
he loves them a lot...
and the coleus we had seen on an earlier trip and he wouldn't get them...

and here are some bloomers that opened this morning...

day lilies...

cone flowers just beginning...

as these lilies are finishing up...
will be dead heading them by the weekend...

we got a half inch of rain yesterday...
and inch more last night...
and the pepper plant shot up a foot over night...

didn't get much done around here at all today...
just a trip to town...
supper and putting stuff away...
and then I laid down really early...
missed my nap today...
and now I will probably be up half the night...
oh, well...
;0)
only 6 more months left of this year...
3 of nice weather...
enjoy these days...

Tete, It is pretty in your yard. Love seeing all your flower beds. I do not know if you and your husband know much about willows....so pardon me if I am speaking out of turn....please do not plant it any where near your septic or leach tiles. The roots of a willow are seeking water , they clog sewers, septic and tiles. Just didn't want you to run into that kind of problem. I can't believe it is July already...I was just saying 6 more months in this year and hopefully good ones without snow. LOL.. Hate to even think of winter, that is why I am trying to love every warm day, even though the heat knocks me out. Hope you have a great day. xoxo,Susie
