Well, one bloomed yesterday. See that bright spot of yellow up there on the top?
The only problem is that the Easter lily now looks like this:
LOL. Just my luck. It would have been great if they bloomed at the same time, but they did not. Now I am waiting to see what happens with all of the other plants in that container....remember....I am thinking this container is full of pink starburst dahlias.... one of my favorite dahlias. Since I don't see any buds, my guess is they will not bloom with the lilies on the right side. Darn! I was a good plan. Unfortunately it's not panning out.
I have been on vacation since Tuesday. On Tuesday I worked my butt off in the garden. I have had no energy since! For the past two days, I've played around with flower arrangements and tablescapes, did a small bit of interior cleaning, but I have not gotten any major work done other than meet with contractors.
We have had three contractors here in the past two days. Each meeting is 1 to 2 hours. I am so sick of going over the same details with each on!
Remember that dining room wall paper I removed? That is what started it all.
It seems the contractor who did the dining room, took a few shortcuts. He put the wall paper right over fresh drywall without priming/painting it first. There is no way I can get that glue off. In order to paint that room, I need a couple of skim coats of drywall over the entire room.
I also need a wall of cedar board removed in the living room, then drywalled, some hardwood floors installed in the hallway, new windows throughout the house, six new inside 9-panel doors, new concrete steps/railings on the outside, a new sidewalk, and once that is all finished, new carpet throughout.......
A couple of days ago, I walked out into my garage and found a box from
CC. Whoo Hoo...my ants arrived after all!
Yesterday morning I went out and picked some ditch lilies for a centerpiece for the steak dinner we were having. I used some of the ants on the table:
Later in the afternoon DH came home from work, walked into my computer room, where I was making this post, and said, "I need to go to Home Depot and buy more of that ant spray."
I gave an incredulous look and said, "You mean the ants are back?" Just a few weeks ago we had sprayed and gotten rid of a ton of small ants inside the house. The thought of doing it all over again was not appealing!
Then he said, "Yes, there are ants all over the dining room table!"
LOL. What a fun table!
With daylilies the centerpiece only looks good for one day. Here it is this morning:
What a mess!
Tonight I am going to a Bellamy Brothers concert. They sang, "If I said you have a beautiful body, would you hold it against me?" I love that song!
