Impatiens and Mums

As I water my flowers these days, I’m so pleased to see the impatiens that were given to me as a birthday gift back in April are still blooming and looking beautiful! Since I don’t have the greenest of thumbs…this makes me super happy, as I’m notorious for killing plants. I either over-water them, or forget to water them entirely. I need to set an alarm or something. In addition to that, I’m never sure how much to water them. Seriously, it shouldn’t be this complicated! I love it when it rains…I don’t have to figure out that ‘how much’ question, and, they always look awesome afterward!



Fall is arriving in Texas!

It’s September 22 and my desk pad calendar states “Autumn begins” on the square designated for this day 265/100 of 2013. Clearly, the calendar and nature are in agreement! As I opened the door to let Allie out this morning, I was greeted with a cool, refreshing breeze and a gift of beautiful fallen leaves and pine cones. I couldn’t be happier that fall is FINALLY on it’s way to Texas. I know, 66 degrees is not so cool in many areas of the country, but, here it’s what we dream of in hot, steamy, tropical August in the Houston area. Anything below 80 is glorious!
