I don't plant these seeds
they lie dormant in the ground

1. I've enjoyed spending a good portion of today catching up on blog visits and am hoping to get to the rest tomorrow morning since my Windows 7 class doesn't start until 11:30. Molly will get a MORNING walk for the first time in a while, so she should be a happier pooch when I have to leave the house.
2. I managed to dig up and transplant quite a few shrubs over the weekend to create a space for my Veteran's Honor rosebush on the parkway. I plan to pick up a bag of potting soil and leave it on the patio next to the rose hoping my gardeners will remember that they promised to plant it for me on Wednesday. They'll probably come while I'm at school so I won't be here to remind them.
3. Two of my Amaryllis plants are almost in full bloom and several more are well on their way. One last purple & yellow iris opened today ... the yellow and white ones should bloom soon. I'll share more photos another time, but it's 8:30 and I'm about to turn the computer off because I'm tired and Molly needs some attention.
4. I've shared more blessings (and a few challenges as well) in my Five Faves at Happily Retired Gal and Just for the JOY of it at Small Reflections this past week ... just because.
