I stumbled out of my house half asleep this morning on my way to get the paper. Yes, I still get the paper. I also like real books…..:o) Reading the paper while I have my morning coffee just seems right to me. Anyhoo, as I’m walking and looking at the yard I spot something that I hadn’t seen before. Seems like its been years ago now, which now that I think about it ….I’m pretty sure it has been, well, at leat 1 1/2 years ago. Someone had given me Lupine seeds. I have never grown them and I’m not really that good with seeds, I’m trying to be better. So instead of following the directions about how to start seeds I just dug a small hole poured them in and watered. I know….so you’ll understand my happy surprise when they started to grow! And grow. Like I said its been about a year and a half. Was about to give up on them when I saw this today
YAY! It’s going to bloom! Now just have to wait and see what color it is. As I was looking at it I found another surprise
Babies! There are several baby Praying Mantis running around the Lupine. Makes me so happy!
My beware is to my friends and family. It’s why I should never, NEVER give anyone a haircut. A before and after….
Pruning is one of my favorite things to do and I have a little problem in stopping……
