Sunday in My City

Happy Sunday!

I'm happy yesterday we had one day of sun...just one day in this week of rain. It took awhile to get here, in the morning we were fogged in, strangest thing to me for living in Western New York. But soon ol Mr Sunshine was here in all his glory! We worked in the yard all day and made many trips to home center for plants and bark along with hundreds of others desperate to take advantage of the one day we were given!

The fruits of our labor

Three rhododendron bushes, two azaleas, four hydrangeas and new dirt to replace the clay and lots of mulch and bark mixed in some sweat and a few bites of unknown bugs there you have it that was my Saturday! 

Why is it my Sunday in the city...well it was this because today the rain is returning and lasting all week. So pictures of me on the couch with a heat pad on sore back and neck watching HGTV or Justin Bieber's Never Say Never is what's happening in this city today! Pretty pictures of flowers is so much better don't ya think! 
Have a wonderful Sunday!
Stop by Unknown Mami and see her beautiful city and her friends too!

We didn't have any sun yesterday - - - but Fisherhubby and I went out in the drizzle - - - he dug, I planted. We can't SEE the fruit of OUR labors yet because it was just bulbs for now - - -

on my first and only trip to the east coast, i couldn't get over the architecture style with the brick and white and black shutters. i was taking pictures of people's homes and they were probably wondering why.

i also loved the stars and eagles people have on their homes in DC. i think that the pacific northwest must be the boringest place on earth architecturally because we have nothing that signifies the region.

my mother in law was just here and she said that next week she is going to take me to a garden sale and buy me a rhodie. woo!

It's quite cold & so windy in my zipcode! Oh such pretty colors on those blooms! Lovely curb appeal for sure~

Ellie said...

I love your flower photos - and I am jealous of those hydrangeas!! I want some!

Thanks for your comment on my post about my son's dance - I wanted to tell you that the Middle School my oldest two go to has a uniform and a dress code for the dance - the skirt's can't be any shorter than fingertip. (I love that rule!)

I hope you get some more sunshine soon!

Wow sounds like a productive day! I'm tired just reading about it! But your efforts look so pretty! I think mucking around in the garden is one thing I'll miss about being in Dubai. I may have to plant a couple of planters for the balcony just to feed my withdrawal :)
