How am I supposed to decide on a major purchase like a houseful of floor covering with a tiny little sample like this?
Too overwhelming. I think I will put off until next spring.
I did find a new little upright freezer for the basement. Tomorrow the 20+ year old chest-type will be forever removed from my life. Good riddance to that. No more bending down 3 feet to get something off the bottom!
I am noticing a few canna buds on the deck plants. I love canna buds.
This bud is striped just like its leaves. The flower will be a bright splotchy orange and yellow.
I don't see any buds yet on the cannas in the big planters out front.
I will tell you more about these planters later when I complain (yet again) about a Breck's purchase.
In the arbor gardens the red dayliles are beginning.
You can also see the tall yellow Ligularia spikes in the background. The Ligularia is just beginning, which is at least two weeks later than last year.
Our heat wave has finally passed. As I prepare this post, it's only 63 degrees (5:00 a.m.). That is so much better than the 80 at 5am last week!
I hope it's getting better for all of you -- especially Deb in Texas where it's been especially brutal.
Please join me as I head over to Jean's Blooming Tuesday to see what everyone else has in their garden.
