Today's Flower and other odds and ends

I popped some Morning Glory seeds in an old frozen yogurt container and put them outside, not knowing if they would grow or not. Here are the results, I had hoped they would grow large enough to drape over the old gate, but I guess not?

I had another first on Saturday, I made cement as we put the second hearth in to bring the fireplace up to code. Its not finished yet, so I will take photos when we are finished, which should hopefully be this week.

Got more problems with my car..........this time the a/c. Luckily dh thinks he can mend it himself, as this problem has happened before.

Had a company bbq for the company I work for occasionally on Saturday............and they picked on me!!!! So if they are reading this I AM NOT COMING TO ANYMORE BBQ'S!!! LOL Don't worry I WILL make them suffer next time I am in work!!! Believe me THEY WILL SUFFER!!

Otherwise Saturday was pretty uneventful......

Hi Gill, I just found your blog through Today's Flowers. Here in BC we don't plant morning glories because the wild ones are so invasive that we're afraid we'll get more weeds. But yours is a pretty colour. I enjoyed reading your 50 tips for using vinegar...and other posts. I'll be back.

I haven't grown any morning glories for years. Seeing yours makes me want to get some seeds to plant along the fence.

Even if they didn't cover the gate, they are still very pretty.
