Planning for Tomorrow's Turkey Day

I think the weather will be slightly colder tomorrow.  Last week we had a bunch of snow and cold, but tomorrow will be clear and cold.

Winter arrived and it was cold! Heavy, wet, good-packing snow that lasted about 4 or 5 days.

Pretty snow, but icy and cold. I know I shouldn't wish my life away, but I can't help but think about what was:
Luckily I have saved lots of seeds and plan to plant early in the spring. Pink cone flowers. Small sunflowers. BIG SUNFLOWERS and on and on. Only 5 months til April and the winds of spring.

Angel Trumpet Deadly! Beautiful flowers but from what I hear, I should be wearing gloves when taking off the wilted flowers. Better keep them away from the dogs too. Burns the skin. They are in the nightshade family.

My husband came home with flats and flats of flowers to put in the garden borders and pots. I still have about half a flat to plant. It's really pretty around here!

Big Rain, Wind and a Front Coming Thru

Big rain. Thunder boomers and a giant front came thru. I'd been sitting in a meeting all day looking out at a beautiful sunshine view of some mountains when wham, it dumped.

Moving My 2 Cents to Tumblr and Day Lily Garden

I'm considering moving this blog over to Tumblr. I am not so fond of how Google is tying everything together and I'm trying to learn and understand the Tumblr format better. So follow me on the new blog at: Not that I'll really focus only on Day Lilies but now that winter is it's last month (please!) I'm getting garden fever again!

7/6/2014 NOTE:  A year and a half later, I never got the hang of Tumblr and stopped posting.  I'm going back to this format on blogspot.

June 2012 Lemon Drops

A Drought the Summer of 2012

Day Lilies
This has been a summer without much rain.

I've water the gardens a few times, but not enough to have beautiful gardens, just enough to keep them going until nature takes over!

Projects around the house have taken precedent over the gardens too... with painting comes stomping of the plants.  But they'll grow back.

Just realized how much I've neglected the blog when Mom reminded me I hadn't posted all year here!! Yikes!

Christmas Dogs - Lady Luck and Lucky Love


No one is awake yet, except me and the dogs.  Can't wait for Lady to see what Lucky got for her under the Christmas tree.  (Shhhhh, don't tell, but it's one of those tennis ball throwing arms!)

From my Mom: Time Release Flowers

Life of flowers from VOROBYOFF PRODUCTION on Vimeo.

Mom, thank you for sending me this link! I think I'm going to watch this all thru the rainy days of fall, cold snowy days of winter and blustery blowy days in this spring until the first crocuses and daffodils peak out thru the snow and mud. Only about 180 more days right?
