From the yard....

First, this is what the Asiatic lilies I posted in my last post looks like now.  In real life they are more faded looking than this.  But look back at them and compare colors.  Almost like having two different plants.  But there is a fresh stem that is the darker color.

Another day lily...I have two bunches of these...they have only been blooming a couple days so should last a while.  The others are slowing down.  I really would like so get some with more vivid colors.

I am temped to call this pink hibiscus Old Faithful.  It started blooming a few days ago.  I think it had 7 blooms on it today.   Last year one day we counted 21 blooms at one time.  Not buds, but blooms.

This is the one I got at the greenhouse about a month ago.  This is its second bloom.  Yesterday it had its first.  If you think the color is odd, you are seeing it right.  It is just the oddest color red.  It was not the red I was going for, but I love it.
I did a couple loads of laundry today...and did some regular jobs around that we all have.  Oh, and Lorelei texted....she wants to come next week for a couple nights.  So, will have that to look forward, too.

OH, the other thing.  Got a call from SSI...late this evening.  Social Security I assume.  Caller ID just said SSI.  Who actually believes it was SSI?  Calling on a Sunday.   I did not answer, but not for lack of trying.  Our phone actually speaks and says whoever is calling...I thought it was saying of Roger's buddies.  I tried to get to it in time to answer but could not.  So was going to call him back, and when I went to caller ID, I saw it said SSI.  (You should hear it try to pronounce some names!)

I bet they would have had some big line of BS...sorry, I could not think of another word...they would have wanted my Social Security Number, and banking account, etc.

I have started adding the sashing and cornerstones to the quilt blocks.  It may take me the rest of the summer to get it done, but I hope not.

I hope we all have a good week ahead....
