Hibiscus, Daisy Jiji blends, Skinnygirl Margs & Froggy

~
Happy Summer to all!

We are baking in the sun ... Eek its been hot!

The organic garden is busting out thx to Mother Nature's rain festival. It also helps to have connections to a very 'hot' Horticulturist. He'z very hot, like a long tall drink of Texas tea. Nice to find a good man with a soil degree from Texas A&M.

Say hello to a vintage froggy door knocker ... He rests amongst the bird food ...



Daisy Jiji got motivated & found a new toy ... Old tall lampshade wrapped in thin strips of illusion. When I run the blender she runs around in circles in this new toy. Funny!


What I blend to stay cool & trim. Just add sweet strawberries! Watch out tho ... Drink it like Kool-Aid & you will be wiped out.


Just planted a new hibiscus plant ... Great sales at all the nurseries! This one is very tall. I planted it in a pot. Hopefully I can keep it alive during the winter inside.


Hope everyone is having a fabulous summer!

Daisy Jiji sends her best, Blackie & Tanner are eating all the Catnip I planted, Little Bunny likes to sniff the Patchouli & Miss Simba watches the frogs hop by the lagoon at night ...

All the Whippy Curly Tails

Beautiful pictures! The hibiscus looks like our Texas Red Star!

Mom's been wanting to try the Skinnygirl Margarita. She hasn't found it for sale around here though :(

Your summer sounds fantastic! Mommy would love to see the lampshade antics...maybe after a margarita or three...

We're glad someplace is getting enough rain... the hibiscus is such a pretty red. But there is some rain coming to our part of the toasty Mid-Atlantic, so our garden will take off too...
