In the Garden today answer: My first sunflower

firstsunflower2

Yes as my lovely friend Joan pointed out, I named the image first sunflower so it loaded on the computer with the image.  Great so I spoiled my own surprise. I always buy sunflowers each year in seed form and imagine rows of sunflowers. Each year, I forget to plant them.

Well this year, rather late, I threw about six seeds in and I was blessed with 4 sunflowers. I like the color of this one. It’s small in terms of Sunflower size but still beautiful to look at.

Have a blessed day!

In the Garden today: What did I see?

Hello!  I thought I would give you a test today. The picture above was taken in my garden this morning. Can you guess what it is? I will reveal what it is on Wednesday.

Flowers in bloom

'Bernadette' Chrysanthemum in bloom in my garden.

‘Bernadette’ Chrysanthemum in bloom in my garden.

This time of year is one of my favorite.  I love the smell of the cool air in the morning and chimneys burning at night. I love all the fall decorations and I wait for the leaves to change all those pretty colors so we can take pictures and go for walks in the park.

Another fall favorite is seeing all the pretty chrysanthemums (mums) out in everyone’s yard.  I used to buy them each year and discard them at the end of the season. A few years ago, my father-in-law found out I did that and told me to put them in the ground so that I can enjoy them again and again. I am so glad I listened because they look gorgeous.

This plant is really special to me because it shares the same name as my sister, Bernadette.  She is a big sunshine in my life and how fitting that the flowers are yellow.  So when she isn’t available to talk to I can catch a glimpse of these beauties and am reminded how blessed I am to have such a wonderful sister.

Have a blessed day!

Happy Monday!

So excited about my giant Dahlias.

So excited about my giant Dahlias.

Hello Everyone! I hope you had a fun weekend. I had a nice time with my family.  I am still trying to heal my left foot so we had to skip the beach this weekend. This makes me a little sad since fall and school are fast approaching and that means beach days are over.

Today I am going to get some x-rays taken of my foot to see if it can help us determine the best path to healing.  I believe it is one of those things that time off of my foot will really speed up the healing process. But it is really difficult for me who is pretty active.

My picture today was taken this weekend of my giant Dahlias. I planted them at this location this summer and it has made all the difference.  I had Leao take this photo to show my father-in-law.  This was my first year that I saved the bulbs and replanted.  I never do that and now I am definitely going to do it every year. I am enjoying seeing them surround my deck while I put my bum foot up to rest.

Have a blessed day!

Belinda
