I looked down into the flower pot that has the purple verbena and purple salvia and I see this beautiful verbena.
Right click on the picture and choose to open in a new window for a larger view.
It put a smile on my face. I have never seen this color of verbena. The tiny unopened buds make me think of the roses Daddy grew along the fence. Just a wild rose he saw growing along a fence somewhere. He took a few cuttings and next thing you know these tiny roses are growing along the fence. I don't have my Daddy's green thumb. He could stick a cut from any plant into the dirt and it would grow.
Don't you just love little surprises?
I did not do much this weekend. Frank grilled chicken leg quarters on Saturday. The potatoes were on their last leg... not the ones from the garden, they have a ways before they are ready to be dug. Frank asked for potato salad. So I made it. It was good.
There were some bananas that were ripe and they disappeared from site. I asked Frank what happened to them and he said he put them in the freezer. I will probably make a banana cake with them one day.
I did work in the yard a bit yesterday. The azalea bushes were way too bushy, so they got a hair cut. I'm not the best at it. I just used just plain old hedge clippers.... wishing that I had an electric one :-)
Frank has talked with his Dad a lot this weekend. His Dad's sister passed away last Thursday. The funeral is tomorrow. Iola lived in Mobile Alabama and will be buried in a family cemetery in Mississippi. Frank was not up to going. His sister is going with their parents and that eases our minds some. It is a six hour plus drive to there. Would you please pray for their safety and that they might be comforted by the Spirit?
Today... I need to do some laundry and get the vacuuming done. I really need to call Mama. I think Frank said that he is going to try and get the yard mowed.
