I’m still being spoiled by flowers being delivered every two weeks from The Bougs; my birthday gift continues to give. (seriously, one of the best gifts ever given by my thoughtful husband, and there has been plenty)
These arrived two weeks ago today. They made me think of cotton candy, which made me think of going to the fair, which made me want a corn dog and a dental cleaning.
This is what is left today and I have another batch of goodness coming via fed ex today. Not bad for two weeks, huh?
Speaking of flowery stuff. For Christmas, my sweet MIL and I put this together. It was her idea and creativity, she just let me get my fingers in the dirt as well. We were going to hang it in a tree but decided to let it rest on an old plant stand and we set it in my butterfly garden. The plants are not just potted in/on the top of the basket, they’re packed all around the sides. Like my waistline, It will fill in more and more as time goes on.
C’mon in, the doors open.
It started as one of these coco coir lined baskets.
I love it so much that it’s a borderline obsession; I tend to it daily, pulling off dead flowers, making sure it’s getting watered evenly and that it pretty much feels good about itself.
You know how it’s nice to have the whole-fam-damily together in one place? Or at least in one county? The Busy Bee family is all sorts of spread out and it feels weird to me.
Lolo is at school in VA, (which I’m getting used to now)
Linds is in New Zealand, (2 more weeks left of her four-week trip) and the
Coach has fled to the Abaco’s Islands in the Bahamas for a quick trip.
I’m feeling a bit of wanderlust in me too….think I’ll head to Target today. Damnit, I’ll not be left out.
