Mystery Plant Remains a Mystery
This morning I took my pot of flowers to a local nursery where apparently I was not the first to bring in this specimen for ID. They admitted they had no idea what it was and not for lack of searching the internet. IF the plant shop where I bought it was closer I'd go see if they could give me an answer but with the price of gas being what it is I won't, and that shop closes this Saturday and will remain closed until Spring 2017.
Since I was at the nursery and very close to Walmart I continued on and did some shopping. I stopped to look at some magazines and my eye was caught by one that was full of delightful photos and write-ups ( The Best of Cottages) . Then I looked to see the price and I could hardly believe it cost $14.99. Maybe I would pay fifteen dollars for a book I really wanted but for a magazine? I think not.
Yesterday marked three years since I began to blog. Hardly seems possible that I am still blithering on.
Are you like me and often check your dictionary for spelling ( yes, I know I have spell check but that's too easy). Anyway, according to my Gage Canadian dictionary blither, blether and blather all are words and of course mean the same thing. I find that kind of neat.
If you're still reading thanks for visiting today. The weather outside is nasty with pouring rain and no end in sight. In fact in addition to the rain we are to have strong winds. I'd bake something ( it seems like a good day for it) but what if the power goes out?
