Happy Tuesday! We had a pretty busy weekend. I was off on Friday so it was a extra long holiday weekend for me!
Saturday was a beautiful morning. Marie and I took a walk and then had breakfast. When we were done we stopped at the Plymouth Farmers Market and I bought a Foxglove to plant in our backyard. It's really pretty and it attracts hummingbirds!
Later in the day we went to Lowe's and I bought a May Night Salvia to plant in the same flower bed. This is supposed to attract hummingbirds, too! I've already seen one on another bush so hopefully we'll see a lot more with these plants!
Pretty plants to decorate Tori's grave, which is under that rock. Speaking of that rock, I made Rich take (steal) it off the beach in Mackinaw City about 15 years ago! It was one of many rocks scattered around so I figured they wouldn't miss it! Now it marks where be buried our beloved Tori last year.
Anyway, we need one more plant for this side of the yard. I am not sure what I'm going to get but I hope to find something yellow or blue to mix up the colors a little bit. I did see a yellow iris but I'm not sure I want that. I plan on looking around a little bit first before I decide what I want.
We also have these hostas that need to be transplanted because they are right in the middle of the yard where our shed used to be. We'll probably put them along the back fence.
On Sunday we went to my brothers for a BBQ. They have a pool but the water temp was 70, which is WAY to cold to swim! Especially for me who must have at least 89 degrees before I go in! Little Dominic was having a blast sticking his feet in there, though!
Monday we had the kids over for a BBQ and to celebrate Chris and Marissa's birthdays. It was pretty hot out, too! It was a nice change from cool temperatures and a ton of rain that we had last week!
Hope you all had a wonderful Memorial weekend.
Let the white wearing begin!
