When we were out and about Wednesday we went to Home Depot and bought a load of plants for the garden and yesterday we got them in,
So it's Friday and it's time to join in with Amy at Love Made My Home and all the other Friday bloggers for Five on Friday.
First let's take a look at the new plants in the garden.
|More Zinnias, they're doubles|
|And even more Tickseeds, they're perennials|
|Our Lantana tree, butterflies love it!|
|Plumbago, the one that always reminds me of my lumbago|
|Another type of lily, not an Arrun, but similar|
|Gladiolas about 2 months early|
|Gardenias and they smell heavenly|
Second are the books I'm reading this week: The Sittaford Affair by Agatha Christie. This is a reread because we saw the tv movie and I wanted to see how different it was from the book. Very, in ways, definitely no Miss Marple in the book. Next Some Luck by Jane Smiley, the first in a trilogy about a farm family in Iowa that begins in 1920. And The Bookseller by Cynthia Swanson which is about a woman who has a life she's dreaming and a life when she's awake. Just started that one. I just finished The Secred Chord by Geraldine Brooks and award winning author. It was the story of King David from the bible. It was good, but not as good as some of her other books: March, The People of the Book.
Next, heard on my MP3 player this morning while I was exercising:
Love Shack by the B-52's
It's 3 AM by Matchbox 20
Better Dig 2 by The Band Perry
Thank God I'm A Country Boy by John Denver
Fourth is our lunch today, it's going to be light and easy. A Spanish tortilla for me and grilled salmon for Mac and a small mixed salad for both of us. We always have a salad. When we don't have one, as happens sometimes when we're eating out, I feel like I haven't really eaten.
Fifth is a sheepdog Mac gave me years ago and a few of the sheep he takes care of.
Hope you're going to have a beautiful weekend!
