Typical Tuesday?

When I walk into work, punch in, go into the locker room to change I don't expect to see a coworker on the floor with a set of lockers toppled over on her! Hmmm...this is starting out to be an interesting day. She turned out to be fine and maintenance secured the lockers to the wall..On to bigger and better things. Then the Doc in my room was in a bad mood. That made it not so fun. But I have to remember that no matter how weird, wacky, boring or nutty my day is...the patient is always having a worse one! So it was nice to come home and take time to smell the roses as they say...mine were looking especially fine today! Atleast nothing big fell on them.
The flowers in the front of the house always fill in so nicely this time of year. I have 2 mum plants that return bigger and better each year.
This planting area in the back needs some thinning out I think! The daylilies are just about gone and it's time to weed and trim up again. After the weekend weeding disaster I'm waiting to get the nerve up!
Eddy thought this area could use a lift with his profile in it. Picture hog!

Well, he knows one needs a secondary and primary focus areas. He's helping you decide which you want where.
I'm jealous of all the color in your garden.

Wow! Your flowers and flowerbeds are awesome! Our heat and humidity is so bad that everything has actually almost stopped blooming by going into survival mode, and mold/mildew has attacked a lot of the flowers and bushes. So I'm feasting my eyes on yours! And that Eddie of yours is one handsome boxer.

Hmmm. You realize, don't you, that you put this post on so quick that others might miss the previous one with the things about you?

Wow, sounds like an interesting day for sure!

Your garden is lovely! I've been attempting to create one myself but I just don't have a green thumb.

P. S. You're not old!
I don't know why I am so obsessed with different era's. My mom says I'm an old soul, but I just love everything from the 50s-70s.

Just beautiful! Those flowers are divine. It's winter here and our roses are absolutely bare. Summer then gets so humid that black spot is almost inevitable. The flowers are so pretty though. I can't help planting them!

Your garden looks amazing, it really makes me wish that winter would be over, and that spring would come, I am tired of grey, brown, and black (from the veld fires) I want to see some colour, all your hard work, had definitely paid off...

thanks for the comment on my blog. I guess if these cats didn't show up then maybe it would always be dogs. I am staying with the dogs and that's enough. Take care. Rose
