Did you hear me screamin'?

A couple of weeks ago I found two orange daylilies at our local nursery.
I grabbed both of them & planted one at each light fixture in our front yard.

"Primal Scream"

Yep...that's me, screaming for joy at their brilliant color.
And life.
Sometimes it gets so busy
I feel like doing a little screaming myself!

Did you hear me?

It was hotter than July around here on Memorial Day weekend
and I chose to stay indoors.
But since then, we have had gorgeous weather
and my flowers have been showing off!

Without much tender loving care,
my hydrangeas are in full bloom.
I never know for sure just how to prune them,
so I let them go until Spring
and then just clip off the tips that look like they are lifeless.

Today I have been washing windows...
one of my least favorite jobs.
I have one done & 10 to go!
(I told you I didn't like to do it!)

I have never liked it so much when bloggers apologize for their lack of posts.
Life happens...and believe me, it's happened a lot around here lately,
so here I am, not apologizing
but letting you know that I still have a little "blog" left in me.

So if you miss me, I'll be out dead-heading, pulling weeds, watering,
doing laundry, fixing Mr. T. something to eat,
(well, the grandkids aren't really babies anymore)
making too many visits to the garden centers
cooking some more...
or maybe washing another window!

I think I would be screaming over your beautiful hydrangea, they are so stunning! I might have to scream over doing the windows, better yet instead of doing windows we will wile away the day in your garden. Lovely post my friend. Diane

Your flowers are beautiful, Sheila. I love the Primal Scream.
I'm always very tempted to just chuck the blogging world this time of year because there is so much to do. Then a very hot day will appear and I don't want to do anything so once again I wonder into blogland!
Hope you are having a beautiful spring, summer is almost officially here. Unofficially, it's been here for quite some time with near 90 degree weather a lot of days. We are drying up and badly need rain.
