Right after work today I had to go to my nail appointment. I got home about 5:00 p.m. I watered a few new shrubs I planted on Sunday. (I went to Walmart and they had tiny little shrubs for $4.00. I bought six of them.) Then I checked my blog comments and started to google all of the camera suggestions.
Thanks to all of you who took the time to give me suggestions--I really appreciate it! I just wasn't in the mood to read about digital cameras tonight, so I will have to check them out another day. I am leaning toward a lower priced camera this time. They don't seem to last very long for me, so I can't see spending a bundle. I do want one that takes nice clear pics and I want to take video, too. My Kodak had 10X optical zoom. That was nice, but in reality most of the pics taken at 10X blurred. It was rare to get a good clear zoom at 10X so I guess that it's not really necessary to spend more to get such high zoom capability. The new Kodak comparable to my old one is 12X optical zoom and it's in the $400 range. I am tempted to buy that one, but I really hate to reward Kodak with more of my money since I think the last one should have lasted longer than two years! However, if I buy the Kodak, I will already know how it works. Oh, such a dilema!
Let's not talk about cameras for now. I am getting a headache!
Anonymous in Ontario asked a question in her comment: ....have you in the past moved or divided perennials while in bloom? If so, how did it work out? Thanks in advance.
I move them all the time when they are in bloom! The secret is water. I did a post about it here. What are you wanting to move? Any plant with a bulb is tricky. I've moved many a lily in bloom with only marginal success. About half of the time I decapitate the poor thing, ending up with the flower but no bulb. Sometimes those bulbs are way lower in the ground than I think. So dig down as deeply as you can if it's lilies.
Well, I think my french manicure has dried enough so that I can go out and water all my plants.
I don't know how many of you have the fakey nails that you have to get done every two weeks, but for those who do, don't you just hate having to wait forever before you can do anything? It really takes a good two hours before you can savely use your hands. Digging in the dirt is totally out for the night unless I want to ruin the color I just paid for. I swear if I didn't work I wouldn't bother. But when you have a job where you have to point to the dotted line for customers to sign, you don't want to do it with the natural little stubs I have!
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
