Things I Like


What’s Blooming and June Wrap up!

The month is about over already!  Half of 2012 just went poof, didn’t it?

By the time you read this, I will have left the husband and cat behind and headed into the Adirondacks for Becoming an Outdoorswoman.

So, I thought I would do my monthly recap along with the usual blooms.

1.  Continue the Fit Female program. Still continuing.  I will finish up in mid July.

2.  Make and post another guitar video.  I posted this yesterday.

3.  Enjoy my birthday!  Done and enjoyed!

4. Finish paying off credit card debt.  Done and done!  That feels totally awesome!  Now to build the savings up.

5.  Make at least 3 Pintrest recipes.  I made 2 recipes.  I did cheesy quinoa (yum!!):

…and a bastardized version of a pineapple yogurt cake, only I made it gluten free and used vanilla yogurt and blueberries.

Not bad, really.  Actually, I am so pleased about the debt payment.  It was at 0%, but it was a big chunk of change each month and I paid down all the rest before the 0% expired at the end of the month.

So, what’s blooming this week?  Lots of stuff!  The garden is just coming into the heavy bloom time for summer perennials.

One last hurrah from the sunsprite rose for a bit.  I can’t believe how many blooms this one has had.  You can smell these roses on the porch.

This is the Milkshake coneflower.  Another ruffed echinacea.  I told you I was obsessed!

The butterfly weed is really growing strong.  This is actually 3 plants, one of which is out of the frame.

Gobs of daylilies.  I leaned out the window by my work chair to take this:

The white swan coneflowers:

I have a bajillion of these this year.

This is the green envy coneflower.  I have decided that I am not all that crazy about it.

The world’s tiniest sunflower:

It’s a teddybear dwarf sunflower.  I know it is supposed to be dwarf, but this is ridiculous LOL! They are supposed to grow about 2 feet tall.  I started these indoors and maybe that’s why.  Or maybe they will get bigger.

Black-eyed Susans on the side of the house.

More spiderwort.  This stuff is very invasive and all over the side of the house.

My potted celosia is doing well.  I love the colors on these.

Starting to get some purple on the liatris this week.

I’m overloaded with plants LOL!  We need to move so I can have more garden – or I will do the entire front lawn.

Enjoy the weekend!  I’ll be kayaking, bird watching, plant identifying and learning about Adirondack ecology!
