Behold the caladiums!



The caladiums look very much the same in the pictures, but they do not in person. This year's variety is much bigger and pinker. The biggest difference is all the other plants in the front yard. They are WAY bigger and I just finished cutting all the azaleas and others back. I don't want them against the house or covering the windows.

Ho Hum!

For some strange reason, I have been waking up and getting up really early the last couple of days. This morning it was 6. All I can think about is ALL those mornings when I HAD to go to work that I would have loved to sleep in. Yesterday morning, after I discovered that the grass was not wet, I went ahead and mowed the lawn really early when the heat was not as bad. That will be the plan for the rest of the summer because it really was easier to do then. There seems to be very few mornings that the grass is not wet with dew. I cannot mow it that way. It is just too hard. I've decided that there will come a time when I will have to buy a riding lawn mower or pay someone to do the yard. I do realize that one can purchase smaller riding lawn mowers than we have at Dad's. I seriously doubt that I could find anyone who could do my yard just like I want it done. I am very anal about it. It has to be exactly right!!
