How many people had to grab their hearts when they read this title? It could be a scary thing but in my case, not so much. See, I’d always told my hubby that I wanted a BobCat for doing important and big jobs in the yard. I mostly said it just to see if I could get a reaction from him but secretly, I would not have turned one down had it shown up on my doorstep. One day he explained to me that a BobCat would rip up the lawn. While it is very, very true that I don’t have a beautiful lawn – especially in this dry summer – I would not like to make matters worse. So I gave up on the BobCat. I just always felt I would look good in one. You know? Then again, I think I’d look great in a snappy little sports car too. And I’m not getting one of those either. Sigh.
As usual, I’ve gotten a little off the track. Back to babies. And yes, I really am too old to have the kind of baby that wakes you up at night and makes you smile the rest of the time. My new “baby” is green. Take a lookee-see:
I did not realize that John Deere (& others) make little compact utility tractors but as I live and breathe, I have one of my very own. I think every woman should have all the babies she wants! You go girls!
And just so you know that my baby looks even better with my favorite 2 year old grandson………..
Several years ago I decided to organize my gardening life by putting plant labels on everything. I had these cute little black markers and with a label-maker, they just looked very nice. Unfortunately, my little doggie Baxter thought they were cute too and he stole them one by one. Pretty soon I had no clue what was growing in my garden. So in another attempt at identifiying/organizing, I took pictures of all the day lilies as they were in bloom so that I would know what colors I had and where they are. These are this year’s day lily blooms:
Unnamed of course.
This is my favorite clematis at the back of the house. It’s just a blooming fool I tell ya. I confess I had to crop off the bottom of this picture. I noticed there was a gi-normous weed right in front that looked suspiciously like a Canadian Thistle. (no offense Canada friends, but I do not like “your” thistles)
And lastly, this bad quality photo of one of my fav’s – old fashioned hollyhocks.
That’s it for today. Here’s hoping you get all the babies you want in whatever form you want them. Maybe I should think a little more about a “baby” car. Like a convertible maybe. Hmmm.
