Odd title to start today isn’t it? I like to be very unconventional. What I really had in mind for the title is “Wordless Sunday” because I don’t feel like saying much just…wordless Sunday.
I opted for the title “Picture Day” because essentially that’s what my flowers do every day, waiting to get their pictures taken. These last few weeks have been so cold outside that I couldn’t do much of anything but to go out and take pictures. Things are starting to wake up and bloom.
A great tip for all you gardeners if you don’t know already: get free compost from your local landfill! I’m sure they have some kind of composting program. I recently found my local landfill had free compost and mulch, not only that but they are quality compost, apparently STA certified by the U.S. Compost Council (who knew there is a council that does that!). They were indeed quality and I have made two trips in the last month. I was telling my family that it is “STD certified” because I couldn’t remember the exact acronym but I knew the first two letters were “ST”. I said STD because it sounded funnier. Guffaw! For those who don’t know, STD stands for Sexually Transmitted Disease.
Anyway, I went today to get some with my husband. We got out of our car and loaded the compost in less than 10 minutes but I saw three other cars there filling up theirs very slowly. I didn’t look very carefully but it seemed like they were sorting through compost as if they were picking out the best ones (???) I am baffled by how long it took those people to load up, I mean what THE HECK are they doing that’s taking so long? I don’t know why that annoyed me to see them picking through it! It’s all the same!
Anyway, enough ranting, here are my flowers’ best pictures this week:
California Poppy “Alba”
Anemone “De Caan”
Anemone “Italian Mistral Plus Rarity”
I keep missing their blooms. All I got are these half-closed flower petals. They do look pretty though!
Blueberry tree with flowers turning into berries. I will have to put nets on these soon or the birds and my dog will eat them. Aren’t they gorgeous? I love growing blueberries.
Hmmm, I wonder what these ladybugs are doing? They flew away right after I took their picture.
“Dark and Handsome” Hellebores
Alyogyne huegelii “Blue Hibiscus”
Daffodil “Flower Surprise”
NO ID Pink Camellia
I asked my husband if he enjoyed my blog and he said yes. He said because the blog helps him to see the flowers I grew. He has no idea what I grow back there if it wasn’t for my blog.
Well, that’s all I have for today. I hope all goes well for you in your week ahead.
