Ten Years, Tired Post

Here I am on my ten year blogiversary (don’t know how It’s spelled) and about to make a pretty poor Slacker Saturday Post. I get so tired by thus time on a Saturday! I went for a long, hard (for me) run this morning, did some pretty strenuous yard work as well as a bit of housework, then I spent the afternoon adventuring with my friend Kim.

I took pictures of some of our adventures, meaning to make some good blog posts touting local businesses. I can still do that eventually.

You know I loves me some flowers!

We spent some time wandering around The Flower Barn in Ilion, NY. However, I could not bring myself to actually purchase anything. I was worried that I would not actually plant what I bought. After much debate and a couple of false starts, we had a nice lunch at The Saalty Dog in Frankfort.

Full disclosure: I did not see an actual dog.

Back home, I have done a little more laundry (need to do more, but I can’t always do the right thing) and a few other household chores. I feel I am making progress in that direction but do not rule out the possibility that I am kidding myself.

Am I kidding myself about this blogging business? I guess that depends on what I am telling myself. Right now I am telling myself: I post, people read, some people like it. Sounds good to me! Here’s to another ten years!

Throwback Thursday about Future Flowers

I have a dreadful case of Writer’s Blank, complicated by the type-it-in-backspace-it-out syndrome.  However, I think I can just about manage a Throwback Thursday Post.

Pretty!

This is discouraging.  The above picture is from May 2017.  In May 2020, my rhododendron has not a bloom to be seen.

I like these too!

Another flower I have not seen yet this year are my irises.  However, since this picture is from June 2017, I do not despair.

Please don’t eat the daisies.

We are also waiting for our daisies.  I’m seeing a lot of greenery for them, so I live in hope.

I LOVE my peonies!

Last year I did not get any peonies at all. I think something came along and ate the whole bush.  How greedy!  However, since I am known to hog down a lot of goodies myself, I suppose I should not criticize.

Pretty little blooms!

Here are my forget-me-nots, which look about like this now.  I previously said they were only out front this year, having inexplicably moved from the back yard.  However, today I noticed that they are also out back.  I am delighted to have these flowers spreading out and taking over my lawn.  I even dare to hope that they will obviate my need to mow, but that may take a few more years.

It is nice to look back on flowers past.  I look forward to more in the future.  I hope to visit the Flower Barn in Ilion to purchase some to plant.  I will certainly make a blog post about it when I so.
