One could get quite creative in designing hair -- or a hat -- for this beautiful lady.
The lilacs are blooming!
And the flowering peach tree (ornamental only).
So I reasoned that if I bought one with blooms it must be a plant that would bloom in the future. Gardeners will find any excuse possible to justify a new purchase.
Ditto white impatiens. When I was a child and went flower shopping with my mother and grandmother, they called these "sultanas." Does anyone know why? Have you ever heard them called that?
I found two of the lovely Diamond Frost plants. They are not extremely lush, but I've been searching unsuccessfully for this plant, and bought these two even though they are going to have to be babied to get the fullness they ordinarily display.
The other plant is a Creeping Fig, which I placed on the woman planter's head temporarily for the photo.
All the plant shopping made me thirsty so I treated myself to a Wendy's Chocolate Frosty. I never think of eating ice cream during cold weather, but once warmer weather arrives I get a yearning for the cold stuff.
And it was HOT today - 85 degrees F. Rain is predicted tomorrow so I probably will be trapped inside.
That's OK; I'll have time to get ready for Thursday Tea. Hope you'll join me.
