Took off early this pm to bring kittens to the vet, but he wasn't in today-SOOOO I went to Lowes and got muclh and compost to finish the flower bed on the West side of my house. Checked on my beans and decided I couldn't wait until Saturday and I picked a good sized bowl full, plus 2 bell peppers that are crying to be stuffed. Pulled up the radish going to seed (they make pretty flowers! Almost as pretty as broccoli flowers!)
Then I had to throw "little ugly" a zillion times for my son's daschund (Little ugly is his favorite squeak toy that is just plain UGLY)-Got the kittens out of the tree they climbed, then out of the umbrella (I closed it cause it's so windy-they climbed the outside of it to the top) Then they were in the bird bath...Now, we're in the computer room, which is also where Clint's (my son) stuff is stored until Uncle Sam gives him a more permanent home, so it is full of STUFF! After they knocked over the Mardi Gras decorations, and climbed on top of the dresser looking at the ceiling fan (oh boy!) , the dog chased them under the computer, and I lost everything I had already written!!
The garden is looking real good-forgot the camera--again! It is and has been so windy here, it's not fun to work outside. At least it's not cold. You guys that are North of the Mason Dixon line have some tuff skin to take your winters. I HATE WINTERS!
Daylilies here are starting their bloom, My irises are through. The Canna's are full of worms (can't spray with the wind so strong-and nosey kittens), roses are blooming, my Plumbago is Gorgeous! (sticky flowers on the kitten's feet) They walk around shaking their feet! My shrimp plants are blooming-the native hummers like them, and my Angel Trumpet is about 5 foot tall, putting on buds. Did you know that Angel trumpets are pollinated by bats? That's why they smell at night! Ok-that's why they smell BETTER at night.
I need to eat-and clean up. I will have to make a story about why I have my son's dog and how I came about with 2 new kittens (rescued from the animal shelter, thank you!) They're my family-although I do have 3 brothers and some neices and nephews. Well, 2 brothers I talk with, anyway.

I'm jealous. My brugs have just started to come up, daylillies are big, but far from blooming...
I never knew that AT's were pollinated by bats.

I think I got that info from Paul James, the Gardener guy! The flowers are so huge, bugs get lost in em!
