Although my friends are avid gardeners I am not. This was a present last year that I stuck in the ground, now it is about 3 feet tall and ready to bloom from about 4 or 5 more buds. Last years present is this years beauty.
This is a cell phone photo so not great- It is actually a deep red.
Also I FINALLY got my back yard hydroseeded. (Remember that was my Mother's Day present in May.) I have had enough of the dirt bowl and so I made some threats to Mr FB and it got done. We are leaving for camping this weekend so we have to get a reliable lawn babysitter to water while we are away. I would hate to lose it before we even mow it.
I am also going to try to get a run in today. I have to get it in gear baby if I want to be a runner when I grow up. A co-worker says he ran a million miles before work this morning. I don't remember the exact amount of miles but I was just awestruck that he runs marathons. Why do I want to be this type of person? I am not sure. It's crazy but it comes from inside somewhere.
Joe - I will be looking for you on the running route with your new sneakers!!
I will update on the exciting grass growing on another day.
