Well, I went all day yesterday without making a decision on Florida. I've been mulling it over, though. I'll probably go. It's going to be a huge pain in the neck but if all my co-workers can do it there's no reason I can't.
Meanwhile, I took care of all the houseplants yesterday morning, and repotted some succulents. I mowed the lawn, did laundry, walked the dog and took Dave's shirts to the cleaners. Just Saturday stuff.
I really need to get my act together because Dave's birthday is in a little more than two weeks. I know what I'm going to get him but I haven't ordered it yet. I guess I need to spend some time on the computer today making plans and getting stuff done. Argh.
This poor rose! The bud was gnawed into by some kind of critter -- and then the flower opened anyway, which you've got to admire. "Nevertheless, she persisted."
We have our first foxglove blossom, on a plant that sprouted on its own in a pot of other stuff. It looks like a descendant of the apricot-colored foxgloves we grew from seed a year or two ago. We haven't had a lot of luck in the past with foxgloves re-seeding themselves, so I was glad to see this one appear.
And finally, the ladybugs (aka ladybirds) have made their appearance -- and just in time, too, because it is aphidland out there. Note to bug, and to self: Get to work!
