I tried to buy some new Crocs locally. The shoe store salesman said they stopped carrying them when the Croc company was having financial problems three years ago. As far as I could tell, there was not a pair to be had in this entire town. So I was forced to go online where I was pleasantly surprised to find a number of different styles at prices nearly half of what I paid locally four years ago. HALF THE PRICE AND NO SHIPPING! Less than 24 hours after I placed the order, the shoes were shipped. Who could possibly fault me for buying online?
I ordered three pairs--two different colors (some may call them blah colors--I call them neutral) of the original style that I now own.
and one of the bottom style which has black fur across the top--whoo hoo winter Crocs!
I don't wear Crocs in public, just in the garden--but I may wear the bottom pair for casual activities.
I just came in from taking some garden photos. Last year I separated a large pot of pink Park Princess dahlias and I am thrilled that they are blooming so nicely this year.
I combined the pink with smaller red/purple Rembrandt dahlias. You can see one of those beginning to bloom in the container near the milk can. I think they will be a striking combination and can't wait to show you these containers in full bloom.
It's been over a week since I worked in these gardens. They are a mess! This is the time of year when most of us wonder why we do all the work. . . the Shastas are dying, all the asiatic lilies are finished, the Lamb's Ear is flopping over, the daylilies have dozens of hanging ugly, squishy, dead flowers...YUCK! Even the hostas look messy with the whimpy purple flowers (I will be cutting these off soon as I am not a fan of most hosta flowers).
Oh, look the delivery van is here with my new little upright freezer for the basement -- Geeez, they took half the tree branches off backing in!
