I love everything!
I left you giant notes on flickr and how funny are you posting as they paint-it's like we're passing notes back and forth in class-or when you text message your husband jokes during work-not that i do that, but you know. I am coming and I want to sit in your yrad, ok?

Look at your beautiful (and generous) Datura, you lucky ducky... Your backyard is so lovely - and so well made for good conversation and food and drink. I like peaking into your home.

Have a wonderful weekend with your folks!

abby.... heh heh... yeah i'm passing notes to all you guys! come sit in my yard ANY TIME!!

hello alli... thanks so much for visiting and commenting....

shari.... thanks! i happen to like my yard most of the time too! :) [not too fond of the weeding, but it's a small price to pay!]

daphne... it's a datura plant... more info:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datura
that plant was given to us when we moved in 7 years ago and it was barely as tall as the fence and all spindly.... it's gone NUTS since then!

hi briana... thanks dear!!

hi sara!! thanks!!

hi tiffany... it's a datura [see above].... i'm so happy you like my yard... it's take a long time to gather all that eccentricity! :D and i'm sure you'll have a great yard someday!!

hi cici... thank you dear!

paula.... you are so kind....

karen... i wish you could come share ours.... orchids? that one was just given to me, but i've had the best luck w/ orchids in this house. i've been keeping them in the back backroom [i think the humidity helps] which has bright eastern light [no direct sun for the orchids!]. i mist the leaves every other day or so... and i feed them once a month w/ orchid food. every couple of weeks i give them a good soak [water from the bottom] and then they have all rebloomed. i did re-pot them last year and they've been in a bit of shock, but most are sending out new green now....

bugheart, di, mati, wendy, gracia, and jenny... thanks for all your kindness and well wishes... i DID have a great time w/ the folks!!

xoxo
