So Many Photos, So Little Time

Having some computer problems and it keeps me awake at night worrying about it. We have a new cat who's recovering from surgery and she keeps me awake at night. I've taken more photos of what's growing and blooming in the yard than I'll every have time to post about and that keeps me from sleeping because it's another item on my list of undone things. Have I mentioned that I'm tired?

Coneflowers & Purple Fountain Grass

White Dahlias
Too Tired To Look Up The Name

Perennials Lined Up
Waiting To Be Planted
Lilies, Yarrow,
Autumn Joy, Mallow
Russian Sage
Planted Them This Morning

Son & Dil's Wildflowers

Amazing How They Grow
In The Hard Dry Clay

A Frog Or A Toad?
I Don't Know
It Hopped Out Of
The Wildflowers Onto
The Driveway And
Made Me Scream


  1. Donna,
    I hope you can resolve your computer issues, I have been blessed with an in-house computer geek, AKA hubby. I wish I could help!
    I was thinking that toad was kinda of cute, maybe you should have kissed it. Did you know they were making a new Disney movie about what really happened when the princess kissed the toad?
    Thanks for posting, even though you are in a hectic, chaotic time. I also appreciate your comments on my blog.
    Those lilies are such beauties!
    Have a great weekend, don't worry, be happy!

  2. Now Donna, don't let that to-do list keep you awake at night! Just right it all down, and get back at it in the morning. It's summer, and time spent in the garden will taper off before long, so enjoy it while you can.

  3. Sorry you're so tired! But, glad to be the beneficiary of your beautiful photos. Love the combination of the cone flowers and purple fountain grass. Enjoy your blooming things and I hope your kitty and your computer and your sleep get better!

  4. Love the gorgeous flower displays, Donna. Not so sure about that ?friend? TTFN ~Marydon

  5. That's a toad, and a remarkably cute one at that.

    I'm sorry you're having trouble sleeping. That's the pits. :( My indoor cat is my 5 am wake-up call and I don't appreciate it at all!

    I love the white dahlia.

    I haven't posted all of my pictures either; I'm saving those to post this winter.

  6. Go fetch a chair, sit down in your wonderful garden and let it all come over you. Your hard work in the yard, taking good care of the cat. You need your rest sweet friend. If you don't take good care of the YOU in you, I might come over and pamper you...how does that sound....But be aware I'm a touch cookie to deal with when I'm in my nursering posistion ;-) Be Well.

  7. I've had bouts of insomnia in the past and they're the pits. Can you try a Tylenol PM? I've heard that one restful night's sleep can be enough to get your body back in the swing of things and Tylenol PM is supposed to be the safest thing for that.

    What happened to your kitty??!?!?!!? Is she/he okay?

    Love the photos - I like the night photo of the flowers because that's so different. And I'm going to vote toad on your photo too.

    Thanks for the post!

  8. Hi Donna,
    I wonder which of us has the most photos on their computers. I have way more than I'll ever post. I like to go back and compare my beds from season to season and see how they progress and change throughout the growing season. Still, I have more of those than I really need, too. I have trouble hitting the delete button. I like the photos you posted. I imagine it feels good that you got the plants put in the ground.

    I'm assuming your kitty's surgery was so it can't create babies, is that right?


For you to take the time to leave a comment means a lot to me. You make my heart happy.
