You've gotta love FREE!
OK, I'll admit it. I didn't really NEED any more plants, especially annual flowers. But they were free. How could I pass them up! See...
I got two trailing verbena plants (raspberry colored) a few lobelia (8 plants- three 3 packs but one plant was dead) that looked really sad. I also got four 3-packs of marigolds but I think there are only 10 plants total.
The trailers went in some neglected hanging baskets (one verbena, three lobelia per basket) and the two extra lobelia went one each into clay pots to set on the steps) I'll plant the marigolds out in the garden soon. The poor plants were all so root bound. I spread out the roots so hopefully they will be alright and flourish now that they have been transplanted into more soil.
Tomorrow, bright and early, V and J17 head out to Pennsylvania. They will visit her first choice for college (Kutztown University) and see V's Mom and sister as well as a bunch of his friends out there since that is his original stomping ground. It seems that they have quite the trip planned. They will be gone 6 days.
The boys will be home alone tomorrow but then I will be off with them for five days. Friday because I worked last weekend, the weekend and then two vacation days. FIVE WHOLE DAYS!! And so far the weather looks hot but great. I've got my to-do list in full swing! I'll be exhausted, I'm sure, but oh, so happy. I'll be sure to post about my progress.
Roger will be discharged from the hospital tomorrow. He will be transferred to a rehab facility in Waterloo, a couple of hours away. He is adjusting mentally and seems in better spirits now that his pain is in better control. I don't know that we will drive to visit him there but I'll definitely stay in touch and try to help out Sharon as I can. I'll certainly be peeking in on his garden from time to time.
