Sunflowers have Arrived

Odds and Ends

Yesterday was a busy day. This is the bed of hubby's truck. These are part of the flowers that we planted yesterday. Lots and lots of petunias.

The other couple of flats are called lobelia. I love them and we planted them along the edge of the flowerbeds. Today hubby will go get truck loads of topping for the flowerbeds. That part will be finished.
We have a local nursery and they only grow flowers for our kind of weather. We are in zone 8 so things have to be able to take the heat and as we will be in a drought because of no rain this year, they are going to have to be hardy.

Today is Em's wedding shower. Before I go though I have to get one more flat of flowers planted before the mulch goes in. I think next week I will be able to start washing windows and screens.

Last nights count of hatched chicks was at four. The moms are doing great and the chicks are really cute and scared to death of me. I am sure the hens have given the chicks bad reports of this giant that comes in and picks them up.

Well off to get this day started.



  1. oh, happy planting! and happy shower!!!

  2. Enjoy your shower ... oh an have fun Em's celebration too ;)

  5. Hi Kim!
    What a scrumptious load of petunias! I can't wait to plant many, many, many petunias in my new garden. I love lobelia, too. It's so delicate.
    I hope the shower is super fun!

  13. That is quite a lot of petunias. I used to start my own seeds of petunias and lobelia except for this year. Just too much to do.

  14. I laughed out loud at the line about the reports of the giant! ;-)
