This was at one time a full bushy plant. But. Chickens. I put this "protector" around it and I have one lone little flower. It's not that they want to eat the plant, they just enjoy digging all around them until they die.
I wanted to show that a few of the yellow angel trumpets are still blooming.
But lest you think all is well and happy with the plant, here's how the rest of it looks! Our time to enjoy these flowers is fast drawing to a close here in Houston until next year.
As you can see, there are a few hardy souls still glowing and growing out there. And of course chickens! I do love them, even though they frequently frustrate my gardening ambitions.
I am still doing a little sewing. I decided I needed to make another red quilt for our bed. I've actually made a little more progress since then. I have the first twelve vertical rows sewn together, labeled and taken down off the wall. It could get finished before my knee surgery next month. We'll see.
Meanwhile, I am so thankful for my African violets in the kitchen window, blooming and making me smile every time I see them.
And you know I'm really thankful for Buddy. He is a continual delight to me.
Mr. Muddling is taking good care of me and spoiling me unmercifully, and I love it! I am a blessed woman.
Life is till good. God is still on the throne. And I'm still believing for good things for us all!
Hugs and kisses,
