Another weekend has rudely flown on by. When will they ever learn to stick around a little longer, to move a little more slowly?
I spent some time on Saturday in the garden center at Lowe's. Just being among the flowers and plants brings me peace. It helps get me back to centered, in a way. And it doesn't hurt that the Dahlias and Daisies were blooming so bright and cheery for me.
And of course, while I was there, I became enamored with a plant that just absolutely needed to go home with us. This time it was a half-price Hibiscus, and the only one left with red blooms.
I've since named her, "Jane."
Jane has lots more buds, just ready to open up and say hello.
For scale: Rory meet Jane. She will block the path you've stubbornly been using, despite our having put up hazards and blocks. She will force you to walk around so that the grass in that patch will finally have a chance to grow. Make nice with Jane, you hear?
Jane might possibly have been my reward for accomplishing this: On Friday, I finished up an order of 216 cake pops for a local wedding and then delivered and set up on Saturday. The groom made the stand, and I filled it up with 5 different designs and flavors of cake pops. Hurrah for being finished!
