Any exciting plans for the day?

Do you garden? What are your favorite plants?

Would you rather entertain at home or go out with friends?

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

I do. We don't have the climate here for them. ;) Although I'm quite proud of the gardenia I've managed to keep alive for THREE summers. I was told by a green thumb that it is an annual here, but it keeps coming back for me! I've also got a gardenia tree on the patio that isn't doing so well ATM, tho. I think w/all the rain, I need to drill more drainage into that pot... I love gardenias, too. I love honeysuckle too, but not all the bees it brings. So none of that in the yard...

A friend sent me a bouganvilla for my 30th bday. I eventually killed it, but I LOVED that plant!!! I'm much better w/outdoor plants than houseplants. Although I've got a pineapple plant that survived the winter indoors (barely) and is back out on the deck.

Playing ball against my oldest's ball team. Moms vs Kids--super excited about that. If we get rained out, I'll likely take the kids roller skating.

Do you garden? What are your favorite plants?

I dabble in it--I'm learning as I go. Hydrangeas are my absolute favorites, followed closely by lavender. The benefit to our rainy spring is that my gardens are going nuts right now, in the very best sort of way...

Would you rather entertain at home or go out with friends?

At home. I love having friends over and grilling in the summer. Or the moms over for Moms Night In... My sis is coming to town this week and I can not wait to spend some time w/her and her kiddos.

Any exciting plans for the day? No, not really. It is very quiet here today, so just taking it easy and finishing a summer dress for myself.

Do you garden? What are your favorite plants? No, I am not good with plants, but dh gardens and is good at it. He has herbs, but also bougainvilla, a lemon tree and a small olive tree.

Would you rather entertain at home or go out with friends?In theory, I prefer to cook for people myself, but I do not enjoy the clean-up. I have been on the look-out for a maid who can come in the evenings to do the serving and cleaning up, but no luck so far, so we go out usually.
