I don't know why but I am not loving holidays this year. Around this time my mom was the same way. She went all out and then one day was not interested. I think mom's just have so many years in them and then we just get tired. Plus the expectations are there because you have always done this. Blech! So I will do my best to not show my true feelings, especially to my youngest. She loves all holidays! In fact I may enlist her help this year. Hmm, I might be on to something.
So I put up the door cross. 6 days before isn't bad right?
A close up. Here is the tutorial from last year for this.
Its pretty easy. I have also been planting. Trying to get the yard in shape for spring and summer
In my opinion snapdragons and not daisies are the friendliest flower. But they don't last long here in Dallas, but I will take them as long as I can.
This is called moss rose. It is a succulent so it lasts all through summer. It's so hot here that can be a problem. Plus and this is the deciding factor for me in all my plant choices. It can be sprayed with roundup and it doesn't kill it. So I can kill the weeds and not baby this plant. Woohoo! I also like gerbera daisies for the same reason.
So what are you doing for Easter? We are having my niece and nephew over. They have parents, but it's the kids that count. Only kidding;) We will heat up the pool. It's hot here already but the pool is still pretty icy cold. We will have a bar b que and so I will be working on my back yard all this week.
