Such a hot one today. I didn't get out early enough to get much yard work done. It was in the high 90's here and muggy.
Every thing will dry completely up if I don't water once a day and some things need it twice.
The flowers below in the lady vase, as I call it, are dried. My sister brought them to me from Maine early this year. I sprayed some floral blue and purple spray on them to color.
She is on a pedestal at the front entrance for now.
Just outside the front door is the zinnia that decided to put out roots while it was in a vase with water. I didn't know they rooted this way. Well I put the first one in this pot and it's still looking good after a few weeks.
Around to the back the only thing that seems to grow like a weed and needs some severe cutting back is the Pampas grass. The leaves are striped and it gets very tall.
Two more zinnias rooted while in the vase. These I put in the pot by themselves.
This one is a greenish color.
So far they look pretty good and they will bloom until frost here, so I have a time to enjoy them
French Tarragon is looking good. I picked some fresh for chicken salad. Pecans or walnuts go in my chicken salad also.
Chopped green apple or dried cranberries. This time it was the cranberries along with the pecans.
Steve likes his salad with only pecans and always has soup.
Zinnia, Herons Pirouette as it's called begonia and the rose I picked earlier brighten my kitchen window.
