That is my garden ready to burst in blooms. It is hard to see, but there are dark purple dahlias, and helenium one of my favorite summer flowers, along with fever few, pumpkins, zinnias, sunflowers, and lot's of other little goodies. I am a frugal gardener. I learned how easy it was to let everything go to seed. Before you know it I had all of these little mini plants. It was like free plants! (The garden centers do not want you to know that). I had one plant of fever few three years ago, now I have hundreds. From ONE plant!.I also divide perennials, I have tons of bearded iris. I could go on and on. I would love to teach a class, or have people over to show them how easy it is. If you have a dog, you can have a garden. You would not let your dog go without water, right? Same with plants!
I am trying to take pics for my Etsy header..I think it may be too bright. It gets dark around 10:30 at night here. That what I love about summer..those long days.
Enough about gardens.. My kids ..they are doing great. Me, i am a nervous wreck( still.) The kids were fitted with their insulin pumps on Friday. Just practicing for now with saline solution. Thank goodness. Because we were at the diabetes center for three hours, and the reality of the disease set in with me, and I was exhausted, plus so much to learn. Later in the week they will switch to insulin, and that is where the fun begins. I will be waking them up every two hours to check their blood sugar. I am getting my rest now,because you know i need at least ten hours a night. I cannot function without my sleep for some reason. So I may not be around here much. That's what is going on in my neck of the woods. I never imagined I would have to deal with all of this. I am following their lead, they are the ones who are handling it so well. Thank goodness there is someone in this house thats calm, cool, and collected. and it is not their mother! Bye for now.
