I thought it would be wise to take photos of the two potted plants that are actually living under our care right now...since I can't be responsible for what might happen while we are gone. I think I will just load them up with water and move them out of the direct light and see what happens. We do have one other hanging basket that's doing pretty well, but it's very needy and I doubt it will make it through vacation. I can't remember what the flowers in it are...petunias, maybe? PJ knows. Obviously, I know nothing about plants and flowers. I just feel really lucky that the ones I like so much are still alive. I hope they survive next week. If not, I will put these pictures in my wallet so I can remember our brief yet intense love affair.
Oh, and in case you are wondering, that foxglove we had bit the dust weeks ago. Jerk.
This first one is our little lantana friend. So cute and such fun colors. And I've even re-potted it twice.
Next is the caladium that PJ's parents gave me when my grandmother died. I love this thing...so regal...and such perfect colors for our decor.
And can you believe that these two plants - both so lovely and innocent looking - are poisonous to dogs? Yep. Part of the thrill of keeping these two alive is simultaneously keeping the two dogs alive. It's a big challenge, but so far, we have succeeded.
And finally, a picture of my new hair. I thought it would be wise to photograph it as well since it may not survive next week either. PJ took this photo this morning before I left for work, Is it me or is it common for eyebrows to get a little WHACK as you age? I used to think my eyebrows were my best feature. They are now starting to look more like my dad's...kind of like a mad scientist...no offense, Daddy - that look is fine for you, but not so attractive for me.
