Carefree Saturday 10

These first set of pictures were actually taken Friday night, but I wanted to include them…

I didn’t sleep well Friday night, for reasons I’m not getting into, so Saturday was a lazy day. I trimmed back the azalea bushes lining the lane, took a nap, and spent some time in the pool. And took some pictures, of course. Besides being exhausted and not in a very good mood, the day turned out ok.

Not sure if you can really tell the difference, but the two photos above are before (left) and after (right). I got two wheelbarrow fulls of trimmings. The bushes I really focused on were the ones that were overhanging the lane. I should have done this a while ago – like a month or so, but it’s done now. Don’t have to worry about it for another year.

House Plants

Spider plant (left) in an old spittoon, and Snake plant flowers. I didn’t realize the snake plant got glowers on it until a few years ago.

Purple Begonia flowers – my dad always called them Monkey face plants…if you look closely and use your imagination, the blooms look like a monkey face.

Baby Snake plant

Tiger lily blooms and raspberry…We still have some raspberries, kind of surprising. And they taste good too! I ate some while trimming back the azalea bushes.

Well, that’s all for this post! Hope everyone has a great day.
