This and That

Today's post will be a bit of everything, starting with this quote from a favourite author! I've been doing quite a bit of both reading and eating lately.

I know you'll forgive me for including another picture of the awesome clouds we had last week. I didn't take this one but I wish I had.

At the grocery store the garden center was marking down the leftover plants. I got these 2 Daylilies for .79 each. They are blooming but being the amazing photographer that I am I didn't get the blooms in the picture.
Later I went back to buy the last remaining Daylily and that one was now .35. I did buy some assorted Coleus for really cheap too.

I have had this old fountain for years but didn't use it. DH drilled some drainage holes in it and I  planted some bits of other plants and hopefully they'll all flourish.

I've mentioned that many of my Lilies didn't make it through the winter. Two Stargazers did make it  and I  brought them in to enjoy.

The last week of July and it is going to be a hot one. I foresee a lot of watering ( and probably watering restrictions by the end of the week).
Keep cool,

  1. I love your idea of using the fountain as a planter--it looks lovely!

  2. What bargains you got with the daylilies. Love the stargazers brought inside to enjoy, simply beautiful.

  3. Great deal you got on the day lilies. Our garden centres don't mark down the plants that low! Love what you did with your old fountain. It should fill in nicely. Have a good week!

  4. Hi GM! The dishes in the background of that last photo are lovely! We dug up our lilies because they were getting too big. Yours are so pretty!
    I should look for some plant bargains this week.
    Happy Monday, friend!

  5. You are such a tireless gardener! And your beautiful garden is the result! I copied the Lewis quote to put on FB. Hope you don't mind. ;)

    1. I most certainly don't mind. I'm glad you liked it.

  6. Beautiful clouds! Happy Returns is a wonderful reblooming Daylily, I am certain you will enjoy the blooms:)

  7. That is an amazing cloud photo.
    Good going on those day lilies!

  8. What a great deal on those daylilies. Here the greenhouses might mark them down by 25% but that's all. I am hoping you'll post pics of the various daylilies in your garden as they bloom!
