gorgeous flower tuesday


Here it is! My big beautiful rhododendron. It rained buckets all night. The rhoto is still looking good. It wasn't fazed by all the bad weather. I am so mad.I had 5 days off from work, i was going to get so much done. I had a list a mile long. But, instead i was laying on the couch with a big blanket. It was raining and cold and 40 mile an hour winds. Now that i have to go back tomorrow, the sun will start shining and it will be beautiful. ARRGGG!!
I was reading this morning about all the tornado's touching down in Kansas. Terrible!! Please may they all stay away from Lone Tree. It sure seems that all bad weather is extreme these days. Not just windy but, gail force winds. Not just rain but, Tornados that leaves a wide path of destruction. All the flooding everywhere. The oil. Oh, the oil. What will be the repercussions from that mess!! At least i can look out my window and see this beauty.

I haven't read anything about the oil spill...I just can't, it's just too tragic and the bastards will get a slap on the wrist and continue to drill for more spills...I too just want to look at beauty, but damn...Nature, through us a bone, bummer about your days off...we have just a few more loads of junk to move too...it could be worse, it could be snow...

Open house is the 29th of this month...I think I'm gonna sell off my cork collection...sigh...but I need a cupboard for my taxidermy...I'm over it...that's what I love about you, if ever I wanna see my stuff, I have to visit you, you never part with it...I love that!!! Ha!

Love ya lil' sister...and your rhododendron!!!

Hey Sweetie!
I agree with you and Sharon... What a sad, sad mess...My dear friend Gerri, once said, " if you have to ask why, the answer is always 'money'..." Oil, Money... same thing... My prayers go out to the tornado, and flood victims... Oh my...
Take care...
My Love to Ya!
{ I love the beauty out your window.... I have to see it in person, some day...}
