I fugured out how to delete blogs thanks to all of you. Let me clarify that I am wanting to delete blogs 'I follow' who haven't posted in more than 9 months. I woudn't delete any blogs that follow me.
Had a beautiful weekend. Still no rain here. It has been the driest Sept and Oct I can remember. There are burn bans and there have been some fires too. Last weekend a home on Dauphin Island caught fire and quickly spread to 4 other houses. Burned down 4 homes and left one standing that will need to be repaired. Luckily no one was injured which is not the case with a home fire this weekend. One person died. We need some rain here bad. There is a 30% chance tomorrow but after that no more chances of rain.
I've been keeping things going in the flower beds with the sprinklers. Everything seems to be coming along nicely in spite of the heat and lack of moisture from above.
I think my mums are going to do nicely. They are beginning to open now.
Begonias have been the best performers this year. They have been in bloom since probably April and are still blooming. They will bloom right on till the frost gets it.
Zinnia volnteers are everywhere. I pulled out the main plants from the spring and they self seeded and are coming up all over the place.
Usually I don't have much success with the white shiny leaf begonias but they have performed beautifully this year.
Gerbera Daisy's have always been a favorite of mine. Normally they do not do so well in my gardens. These are new ones though so I'm enjoying their beauty.
Love me some snapdragons too.
Marigolds are good performers here.
Love the color of the snapdragon.
Dianthus is a good performer giving flowers all summer long and into the fall. I put out 12 more Dianthus plants last week.
I did get out to a yard sale on Saturday. I could kick myself in the butt for not buying more of these figurines. This lady had a table full and they were all .50 each. No name brands on the bottoms but they are very nice.
I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this ornament. My daughter sold these when she was in 2nd grade many years ago. I had that ornament till just a few years ago. I lossed/broke it and then I found one just like it. Made my day. (April do you remember this ornament)
This was .50 too. They look just like Snowbabies and I couldn't tell the difference. But they had no name on the bottom. Good lookalike.
Loved the Granny holding her little puppy. This is me and Buddy.
I love a good Snowman. This one is well behaved.
I should have taken a photo after I washed these platters. These were a dollar for the pair. Who can go wrong with white platters and there are no scratches or chips either.
I have a thing for night lights and accent lighting. I loved these little mushrooms. I added a blue night light and like the effects. The night light was a dollar.
Didn't do anything that I had planned this weekend. But oh well.... Spent the weekend by myself cleaning and stuff like that. I love it when I can mark off all of the items off my 'to do list' and I did that.
Have a wonderful and blessed day dear blogger friends.
