Last Thursday night, my friend Sandi and I went to a local Community Theatre to see "Menopause-The Musical". Wow!!! What a wonderful show. So many things to identify with were included. Or at least, Sandi and I could identify with. Basically the writer has taken many songs from the 60's, 70's and 80's and changed the words to relate to issues involved with menopause, such as not sleeping, night sweats, hot flashes, etc. If you ever get the chance to see this DO IT. There were even a couple of men there. Not sure they got as much enjoyment out of it as the ladies did. Now Sandi and I have decided our entire stitch group needs to see it. We neither one thought we would have a problem seeing it again.
Many blogs have talked about working in the yard and gardening. Well, I don't do much of either one. We have had such a cool spring that I have not done much of anything in the yard. Trying to really have mostly perennials, so I don't have to do much. Morris spaded up the area that we usually put tomatoes it and it was hard and cloddy. Saturday he went out and bought a mini-tiller to work on it so I could put the plants in. We have really yucky clay soil and it can get really hard. Even the tiller could not break up the clods. He ended up wetting it down and then tilling to get it so I could put the plants in. Yesterday afternoon I put in 4 regular tomato plants and 2 cherry tomato plants in. This morning I put in 8 petunia plants. Still have a purple fountain grass to put in, but I tried to dig a hole big enough to drop it in and it was hard, so Morris will have to work on that tonight. Need to go buy a few more petunias and a couple of green pepper plants and my flowers and garden will be in. LOL.
Here are some photos of my flowers, purple iris, mostly. They are easy to grow and care for. Throw them in the ground and let them go. Sorry, Julie, I know you don't like them, bu they are easy to grow and look nice. I also have some white ones, but I guess I did not get any of those pictures uploaded. Muffin standing in front of some of the iris. You can see to the left in this photo that my peonies are in full bud. Usually by this time, all my iris are done blooming and the peonies are close to done. Don't think they will even be open by Memorial Day. I can remember growing up that my mother and my aunt would pick them as they were opening up, wrap them and store in the refrigerator to save for Memorial Day to decorate with at the cemetery.
Another picture of Muffin. In the first she is in the bright sun and her eyes are almost closed. In the shade they are more open. Maybe I should get her some sunglasses. LOL. The white irises are right behind Muffin in this picture.
This is probably my last post until we get back from South Dakota. Just noticed that May 31st will be my blog/anniversary. It is hard to believe that I have been doing this for a year. Hopefully you have not been bored to tears reading my babble. I really enjoy doing it after I get started. It is the getting started that is the problem. Don't want to take time away from stitching. Been having trouble keeping ahead of the blog reading. Many of the comments that I make are 2-3 days behind when you posted. That will only be worse after being gone for almost a week. Better late than never. Thanks for stopping by and reading my babble. Have a good couple of weeks and I will be back in touch in about 2 weeks.
