Fact: The word pineapple comes from European explorers who thought the fruit combined the look of a pinecone with flesh similar to an apple. Pineapples are the only edible members of the bromeliad family.
Colleen, Mary, and I were up early and hit the firepit before 7:00 AM. We solved the problems of the world. Colleen worked on her computer, and Mary and I got into our grubbies and worked in the front yard for several hours.
Around 10:30 AM, Colleen went to visit her mother in La Mirada, so we did our errands! The first stop was Home Depot to get flowers and other gardening supplies.
If the English language made any sense, lackadaisical would have something to do with a shortage of flowers.
Roses are red, violets are blue, I’m schizophrenic, and so am I.
Home Depot knows us well; we go all the time. Mary is pushing cart number one; I had the heavy cart with the bags of red mulch. We mulch almost every garden to keep the sun from drying out the dirt, especially in summer.
When we got home, we worked on the patio for almost four hours, but it looks nice now that we have all three supports to the patio covered with climbing vines. Our patio has three posts, and only one had a climbing vine; that is not the case now!
Did you hear about one flower who went on a date with another flower? It’s a budding romance.
In the front yard, we put miniature morning glories on either side of the walkway, and they should get pretty tall. We had lights on the posts, but they stopped working. Our security lights will take the place of the lamps.
I named all my children after flowers. There’s Colleen and Robin and my son, Artificial.
The trellis is firmly attached to the post, and the plant can grow as tall as it likes.
All in all, it was a beautiful day. We worked about six hours in the garden and by the time dinner got here, it was time to go to the spa. Colleen was with us; we taught her how to make zoodles, noodles made from zucchini! Mary whipped up a sauce, and we had dinner. The meal was fantastic; I went for seconds!
After dinner, we went into the Swim Spa and the aches and pains of the day disappeared.
