Massing Color or….Not & It’s EARTH Day!

Pink gerbera daisy, yellow daffodils, hot pink dianthus, red gerbera daisies, red drift roses, yellow Asiatic lily, yellow coreopsis moonbeam, and more flowers about to bloom

Around the neighborhood when I walk, I see where some neighbors mass their colors–all orange marigolds, or yellow lantana, and it’s showy and pretty. That’s what is often recommended. Same plant, same color for a really spectacular setting.

Me? I tend to have a riot of color. I have been adding a lot of the same kind of flowers–the lilies and daylilies so that it’s not just one here and there. And as they get bigger, spread more, they’ll be more noticeable. I had only one red rose bush, and now have two. I notice that neighbors who have more than one in their front yard appear to be more balanced. I added one of the apricot ones too. I can’t help myself. They’re beautiful. But I think another couple of red roses is in order. The drift are small, lower, you don’t have to do a thing with them. So I think I’ll get a couple more of those to balance things out. I have all purple magic crepe myrtles out front so that I have balance with those. 🙂

I had all blaze red roses out front of my house along a fence when I lived in Oklahoma, and it really was pretty, but the blaze eventually died of fungus. My mom had them too all along her white brick wall in Texas and the same thing happened to hers. Knockout roses seem to be the best for hot humid weather and survive fine through the hard freezes we have.

I had a redbud with the prettiest purple flowers and I had a flowering perennial ground cover that was the exact same color! I did it on purpose, NOT, but boy, was it spectacular when all of them were in bloom. So massing color does work!

It’s EARTH Day! Remember the earth, plant a tree, recycle, save water!

Okay, off to work on the story!! Up to 25,000, 55K to go!

Have a wonderful day!!

Altering Life

Playing around with the picture I took of an Asiatic lily–using Topaz Studio (free). I see that wasn’t the original picture I used–this one has water drops on it.  🙂 <3

I ended up writing over 4,000 words yesterday, catching up on the other day and making word count for yesterday and a start on today. 🙂 17,000+ done, and 63,000 to go. It’s amazing how just writing and writing and writing really works. I have to admit when I was really sick, I could only edit what I’d written. I just hadn’t slept enough to come up with new scenes.

 

Lola shared a picture of her beautiful Tuxedo cat, Ms. Cassie, cuddling with a hot cougar. Thanks, Lola, she is adorable! And my picture of Trixie, my black and white rescue cat when she was just a kitten, and my son. She is definitely watching what he is up to. She was so good-natured with both the kids.

The writing isn’t going to get done without me, and I had an idea last night before I dropped off to sleep, and I remembered it this morning without writing it down! So off to add it to the scene. Which means making some earlier changes.

Have a super, wonderful Monday!

Taking a LONG Walk

Late posting because I had a mission: Take pictures of purple irises before it was too sunny out. And I walked the wrong way. But that’s okay. I managed to get some shots of a great white heron and a snake bird and walked 3.6 miles. I still also had shots of the irises. I just missed taking a picture of a hawk on a dead tree. By the time I whipped my camera around to take the shot and before I could focus, he flew off.

yellow Asiatic lily, daylily, gerbera daisy, and pink rainbow bear

Two-hundred and ten pictures later, I’m home, trying to cool off and getting ready to immerse myself in SEAL Wolf Surrender.

No more interruptions. But what a wonderful start to a day. I’m just downloading the pictures now, so will have to share tomorrow.

Have a lovely different kind of day too!  🙂 <3

Rainy Day Brings April Flowers!

Well, baby had the stomach flu and an ear infection while I was taking care of her. So other than playing with her, feeding her, and getting her to sleep for 4 1/2 hours during two naps on my lap for the day, we didn’t go anywhere like I’d planned.  Hope I don’t catch it!!! She still had her shots, but she’s on antibiotics now too.

Today, have to get back on track with writing. It’s a really neat vampire day, light rain, dark skies, took some pictures of flowers that flowered while baby was here, but couldn’t capture them yester.

Yellow daylily, red Asiatic lily and peach roses that turn pink.

What a beautiful day! Have a fun one! 🙂 <3

Ha! My post didn’t publish. Darn fae.
