Glimpses of Home

Scrappy Paradise Quilt. Picture from my other blog. I love the crosses in the sky!  The soil in the background is prepared for setting out tobacco plants, which will take place in a couple of weeks or so. 



Late afternoon when shadows are long.


The pansies are coming along nicely. They honestly looked about dead when I put them in the pot.


Guard frog beside a Ghost Plant.  This plant is so brittle!  You can barely brush against it and leaves will fall off.  This is its way of propagating itself though.  The leaves that fall to the ground root and make babies.  This plant also survives the winter with no trouble, despite its being originally from warmer climates.


Couldn't resist this pink Geranium growing in a red watering can.


I took this picture just last week.  It seems like a long time ago because last week was still winter-like and this week is summer-like!

 
 
Enjoy your Thursday!

How did you get those crosses in the sky? Loved all the pictures.. I bought red geraniums .. the pink are pretty. I have really enjoyed this summer weather. Cut the air on for the first time today... not so much for the coolness as to help us breathe... pollen is affecting our sinuses...
