I hope everyone had a happy and safe holiday weekend. Our weekend was beautiful here. The weather was perfect for being outside so I spent most of the weekend planting and transplanting and buying plants that were on sale.
I was looking for a hanging planter at wal-mart and they wanted $5.00 so I went on over to look for plants for a $1.00. I found 6 healthy big pink petunias for a dollar so I got them. On my way out I saw some hanging plants for $2.50 and I picked out this red white and blue one for the fourth. I just trimmed all the dead stuff off and watered it. In a few days it should be looking good.
The rest of our weekend was filled with cookouts, babies, birthday cakes and fireworks. Sunday was HB's birthday so we had a party. We grilled kabobs and played horseshoes in the backyard. It was a great time with our family and friends.
I have some Lemon Verbena on the deck and everyone was enjoying it's scent. This year I have Lemon Balm, Lemon Verbena and Lemon Basil. Can you tell I like lemons:) I also have a Strawberry Scented Geranium and some Pineapple Sage. People spend some time smelling things when they come to visit me:)
