I just don't know where my time goes, but it flies by way to quickly. This post is of my garden before the drought really set in and before we were on water restrictions. Now it looks so bad that I won't even show you pictures of it. Just trying to keep everything alive. I could care less about the grass - it can die, but not my roses and flowers.
These roses are on the back side of the house and are such a pretty color. They give me lots of
This rose smells so good, just like the old fashion roses.
This bed is by the fence so I worked it and put in Sunflowers and Hollyhocks with some little daisy's.
This is what it looks like now. The one Sunflower had a big flower at the top and more are coming on the sides.
My vegetables which did good at first, but now most of the tomatoes are pitiful.
A few of my herbs that I keep on a stand so the dogs don't go digging around looking for lizards.
My garden bench out in the veggie garden.
Some more of my roses ..... and flowers in the back yard.
The Iris's did terrible not many blooms at all. Some of the plants did not produce blooms at all. What a disappointment.
My Daisy patch in the front yard.
See how pitiful my hydrangeas are. I was so disappointed as I wait all year for them to bloom.
One thing I can count on are my sweet little Hummers. Always there to greet me everyday and waiting for me to fill up their feeders.
Now the Golden Finches are eating out of the Hummingbird feeders. This is the female - not so pretty, but the male, WOW he is beautiful. I can never get a pictures of him - guess he is shy.
My little Hummer is looking at the Finch and saying "Are you crazy, this is ours"
Many of your probably already know that Julie and I met while she was out in California on vacation.
She is Julie from Julies Lifestyle. What a lovely person she is - so kind and sweet. We had a grand time eating out on the upper patio at the Cheesecake Factory. We had Shelia's Salad, which was excellent. If your ever at a Cheesecake Factory get that salad, but don't get the regular one. We got the smaller one and could hardly eat all of that. We passed on the Cheesecake when we found out that there were 1,500 carbs in one slice. But it sure looked GOOD.
Here we are, a little wind blown, but oh such fun.....
Here is a little tablescape that Zoie and I put together for the Fourth of July. I have been watching her as her grandma was out of town taking care of a friend that has cancer. Zoie is 10 years old and is a delightful little girl and very Fashionable.
We had so much fun shopping for 4th of July decorations for the table. She was a big help.
A place setting using a lot of dishes and decorations that I've had. The napkins are from the 99 Cent Store and are T towels.
See the Coasters on the table - Julie gifted me them and they are red, white and blue and an American flag. I just love them - thank you again Julie.
Here is Mr. Liberty gracing the center of the table. Got him last year at Michael's with a 40% discount coupon and did a Happy Dance all the way out the store.
Excuse the picture as I was trying to show you how these sicks light up - from the Dollar Tree and they are really cool.
Zoie and I put together this Sweet Table. Red, White and Blue Jelly Beans, Red Hots, 4th of July cookies and Peppermint Sticks.
Waldo was in the way, so we had to step over him the whole time we were decorating the table. He does not do well with Fireworks. I have to tranquilize him, or he gets really up set. He looks like he is stoned.
Just a few flags on the front porch along with a red throw.
My wreath on the front door.
Sorry this is such a long post, but I'm having fun "Living My Life" and doing fun things. I'm not letting any grass grow under my feet.
Waldo, Lili and I wish all of you a very wonderful Happy 4th of July.
I do love all the comments and try to answer them all.
