I told Bill I was only getting 3 plants and he laughed at me. I ended up with 6. i justified it by saying 3 for butterflies and 3 for hummingbirds.Sounded real good to me.
I did mess up and didn't get the name of one of them but i am sure when my sister reads this she will know.Or one of you will know.
Ok Here are 5 of them
here is what tags said. Top left is a salvia.
Middle one on top is Firebush hamelia Paten
Top right is a Crossandra 'Orange Marmalade' It is an awesome looking plant.My pic doesn't do it justice.
Bottom left is a lantana New Gold. I have 2 of these but they are not blooming.I need to repot but don't want to now
On right is Angelonia
And this is one I don't have the name of.
And this we got to hang a plant in the garden.It is heart shaped.
Now some odds and ends. Butterfly,Pupa today and orchid with some blooms starting to show.
Once we get them outside I will try to get a better photo of flowers. We will complete the butterfly garden tomorrow.
I was going to get Brianna to help me but she pulled a muscle helping me yesterday. If I didn't dislike her boyfriend so bad I would get him to help.
I have been doing very good with counting calories. I have been in the middle of my range for 3 days and it looks good today.
I was very happy with results of SYTYCD. The top 2 were the top two and both great.
Ok Time to go get me some supper.We ate out for lunch so now it is every man for himself.
Oh Just a short story. Bill and I have always been able to know what the other was going to say many times. We keep throwing out ideas for back yard. Bill was sitting out here with me and we were talking about using the blocks he made my sidewalk out of for platform for gazebo. He wanted to know if it would be any problem for me.I said no.Then I told him I had been wondering about out door carpet for in the gazebo. He started laughing and said I just took words out of his month.That he had been thinking about same thing and was going to mention it. Either great minds think alike or we have just been together too long. Ok It was funnier when it happened. i am going for real now and get something to eat. Hope you all had a good day. No rain.All sunshine today.Very hot sunshine. It is late in the afternoon and it is 96 in the shade
So far the computer is doing good.
I was surprised that I was able to stay in my calorie range again last night. It might be a little closer tonight. I cook a roast in my iron pan and it was very rich. I made sure I only had one bowl and sent all the rest home with Brianna. I knew if I kept any I would eat it and it would be way too much.
Brianna came to do her regular stuff and she did some work out in butterfly garden. Moved pots around and pulled weeds that were in pots. Roxie had to have her nose in there with Brianna.
This is the wagon Bill has been using to move stones. It was his wagon when he was little.Still works
This is a pretty flower in flowers Bill brought home
here is one of my favorites starting to bloom again
And this is the best. Look what Brianna found when she was moving pots
Pupa #2. She moved it to where i can see it good from here..It isn't as large as other one was but hopefully I can catch this one turning into butterfly.
Today has been sunny and very hot.
My Big Momma orchid has even more stems showing today. It is going to be huge and full of blooms.
Ok I have to finish up the kitchen and get ready for SYTYCD. The dancing was not good last night. I agreed that they were tired but it was disappointing. As usual Shasha and Melanie together was good. The choreographs were not very good. I am hoping Melanie wins.It will be close between her and Shasha. Boys don't stand a chance against them.
Ok Hope you had a good day.
For $175 it better be fixed. He found 2 virus's hiding. I am on little laptop now. I will go out there later.
We are watching the DVD Season of the Witch.Really wild movie. Witches and demons. When I put it on my netfix list I thought it was a different one.
I did good with calories yesterday and today is looking good. Still have no real motivation but just trying to force myself to do what I should. I was able to get rid of the extra fluid I was dealing with. Swelling is out of feet and I can breathe better.
We had rain again for most of the day.This morning was real stormy.
Ok nothing much going on so will go check out the other computer.
Hope you had a good day
It has been raining all day. Great for sleeping. Roxie doesn't like it much tho.
My computer is still acting up. Have to constantly shut it off etc. I have a computer guy coming tomorrow at 4. Hopefully they can straighten it out for me. Won't be cheap but less stress for them to just come here and do it.
I did start counting calories yesterday and it was an eye opener.Seem like i ate more because I was counting. But today has been good so far. I might even be in range at end of night. One thing for sure is I won't be out the roof like I was yesterday. I still don't feel motivated but trying to get myself under control.
Ok i will make this short as I never know when this computer will stop working. Hope you are having a good day
My computer is going nuts on me.protectuon says I have all kinds of stuff but it won't take care of it.Can get on here sometimes and sometimes not. So will blog quickly.Today was my start over day. I still have no motivation but decided to start by tracking my calories. So far it is not pretty today. But at least I am trying to get back.
This is a plant I have had on my window sill forever and never knew it would have a bloom
This is Bill's ginger plant.He took this pic for me
I was thrilled today to see a large black swallow tail butterfly. Instead of sitting here to get a pic I decided to go to another window.The delay costs me a pic. next time i will know better. I am just happy to see it and hopefully more will come
We got a huge pile of junk taken away from back yard today. Slowly but surely
And Bill got rid of two mice. He bought a trap thing that kills them somehow when they go into the box. These were small so momma and papa are still out there.
Ok I better try to post this before computer goes nuts again.If I disappear it will be because I am getting computer fixed.
