My dear husband is home. I picked him up at 1 pm yesterday and he's doing very well. This surgery was less invasive than the last one where they had to cut out a cancerous tumor that had wrapped it's roots around his spinal and vocal cords. He's in so much less pain this time and is eating solid food and resting well with good pain management. His little fur girl was glad to have her daddy home. Thank you to those of you who left supportive comments and those who had us in your thoughts and prayers. It was very much appreciated. :-)
As I walked across the garden to the house I snapped a few photos of our flowers and plants. This is a new favorite of mine, Hotlips Salvia. I hope it comes back next year.
The Lantana in that same pot.
This 4th of July rose is almost all red, very unusual. This bush is not doing well for some reason, so I was glad to see a few new blooms.
I'm always looking for tomatoes, they are there but still green. We had our first rain for months and it felt really good. I guess I am a true Oregonian as I like the rain. :-) In moderation, of course, not months on end..
See all the little 'maters? The variety is called Black Cherry and were recommended to me by my daughter. So I guess I should not be looking for them to turn red?
I managed to get 5 out of the 6 fish in one photo. Keiko, Pierre, Tiger, Marmalade and Kumquat - missing is Ashley.
I was scrolling down my Facebook feed and Alia from "The Little Bee" posted these lanterns by another designer. I fell in love with them and bought the pattern and a few supplies from Amazon which will arrive tomorrow. I will show you the project when I make one.. or two.
Well.. that's it for us right now. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Any exciting plans? Do share! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
