I asked at church last night if anyone minded me digging up phlox and day lilies or they might be irises. They mow down all of the flowers and never let them bloom because weeds grow up in them. Everyone was happy that I wanted some.
Today, my husband wanted to go to a grocery store in the area of where the church building is and he took a short-handled shovel and three 5-gallon buckets for the plants. One color of phlox is hot pink and the other color is magenta.
I don't know what the lilies will be, but I have been looking for free perennials on Craigslist and elsewhere. My hosta plants were over $10 each and I transplant purple violets which are a weed when they get to be big plants that grow in the gravel in our back yard. We put white gravel at the top of the basement stairs and around the air conditioner.
The more plants in the flowerbeds, the moister the soil stays and the less space there is for weeds to take root. It is to rain tomorrow. We have been in a drought here and though we have had many rainy days, the amount of rain was not much. I like rainy days to do desk work, but tomorrow my sister is paying for someone to style and cut my hair for the wedding.
I checked into what I will need to spend to board Bayau during our son's wedding and be the Lord Willing, will take her Saturday for one of her shots and a nail clip. I also want to visit the kennels and let the owners look over her shot record and prepay for her stay. Tuesday night, the plan is to go dress shopping with my son's fiancee.
Hubby is getting the oil changed on our son's car tomorrow, be the Lord willing. My husband will be picking up our daughter at the airport for the wedding and thought he was going to have to go to Alabama to get the grandfather of the bride. I think now, the bride's mother is going to go and get him and take him back to Alabama. I don't drive the interstates, so if the transportation is messed up, I am not responsible. Whew, I am glad I don't have to juggle arrival/departure times and trips.
Hubby bought pork sausage-$2.79 lb, bottom round steaks-$2.99 lb., ground round-$2.99 lb. We were low on meat and the beef was a good price. We weighed it and bagged it up, put it in the freezer and ate dinner before working on the flowerbeds.
May the fourth be with you (and me) because May 20th is coming soon and we will be gaining a daughter-in-law.
