One of my friends gave me a Lantana and an Apricot Drift (meimirrote'). Now all I have to do is decide where to plant them. The Apricot Drift is a groundcover rose that reaches 2 1/2' wide x 1 1/2' tall. It is really pretty, with a beautiful apricot colored bloom that fades throughout the day and smells absolutely fabulous!

We don't really do birthday's up big around here. I just never really cared for the fuss, don't like surprises and don't enjoy being the center of attention. My mother didn't ask what I wanted, so I guess she read it on the blog. Since they didn't know much about it, she and my nephew didn't really know where to begin their search for freeze-dried meal worms... but being the troopers they are, they finally managed to find some in a pet store. My nephew asked, "Does she have a frog?" Mom says, "No, I don't think so". "Why does she want meal worms?" Mom says, "I dont' know". Mom's like me, she doesn't ask questions. She just "does". So I suppose that she was relieved today to know that I wanted them for the bluebirds... and not another crazy diet I read about on the Internet! :) Seriously, does a meal worm diet sound that much worse than the cabbage soup diet? Answer: Not if you've ever been on it for more than a week! :)
My favorite gifts today? LOVE and FRIENDSHIP... those are the things that I cherish most! Love you all, and thank you for always being there!
