Anyway, I meant to post yesterday, but I spent a good portion of the day working on this:
I had an appointment in the morning for bloodwork, and decided that the afternoon deserved to be something more enjoyable! On Sunday afternoon, after we had finished our walk with Seb, Karen, and Doughboy (!) in the Mother's Day race here in Philadelphia, The Tim and I headed to Home Despot (Home Depot, for most of you). He had some "fixing-up" stuff to get, and I wanted to get some flowers and some herbs. Every time I thought I'd get some things in the last few weeks, it's either been too cold or raining to make me feel inspired enough to even pick something out ...
We have a planter on one side of our house that gets a lot of sun, and then our garden has spots of sun and partial sun. I also like to grow herbs, so I wanted to find some to at least feel like I had a chance to get started.
The top three pictures are the planter, (the rosebushes were already there), and the bottom three are the garden, including my herb garden on the wall (the azaleas were already there). I hope to find some more flowers and some more herbs, but I am happy with what I have so far.
But do not fear - even though I didn't post yesterday, I did manage to have Jetsam pick names for the two books I was giving away.
"YIKES! It's trying to escape into the chair cushion!"
"I'll show this one who's boss!"
And he chose:
For Educating Alice: Sprite
For Ex Libris: Bookfool
Congratulations to both of you, and thanks to everyone who entered. Sprite and Bookfool, please send your mailing info to me (thekittyknitterATverizonDOTnet). Just so you know, I probably won't get the books in the mail until early next week, since I am working tomorrow through next Monday, which means I won't be able to get to the P.O.
Be sure to watch this space, since I already know I'll have a couple of books to pass along at the end of this month.
