Afternoon chats :)

I have a bff who lives far away... yesterday I missed her call... so today I am drinking from a coffee mug she made me last year :)

Whilst next to me on the table is the quilt I am trudging through... soon I will hit the 50% done mark and it will go faster... but I have had other things going on and quilting hasn't made the list in the last few days unfortunately :(

Tomorrow I have no plans... Yipee!  My "emergencies" are over for now... dinner for tomorrow night needs to be bought but is decided and all is well :)  Ahhhh... love that!

So I decided to share some updated pics from my back yard...

This is my honey's fave viewpoint and I do love the nice rich green of the elephant ears :)  This started as 2 small plants last winter.. these are only about 8 months old :)  They get LOTS of rain when it does rain here so that keeps them happy with lots of morning light too.

To the left of them is purple queen.  It has cute pink blooms intermittently and has been fun to watch mature.
Across the back of our Florida room is more bedding areas with lots of purples and greens...

Up high are the wandering jew "callection" we have going... all 3 pots on the back of our Florida room are starts from the original (the one on the left) and the one in the middle are clippings my honey rescued from the garbage after my dd "trimmed" the plant :)

We also have wandering jew here...
And my honey seems to be adding more cuttings that have rooted...
And now it looks like this!
The Roadmaster wagon was a Craigslist find for $20.00 and we have used it a LOT in our yard :)

Now for that darn blooming aloe we put in the ground a few weeks ago... along with some lonely looking cactus friends.
Those crazy cactus were about 4" tall when we got them at Lowe's last spring... now they are each easily over a foot tall and all curvy!  lol

Last and definitely NOT least is our daisy... mixed with a little purple queen there on the left :)

 This daisy had one bloom on it when we looked at the house in December last year... small plant and small bloom but I loved it so my honey saved it and has transplanted it up in pots and is about to again!  But look at all the bloom heads on ONE leaf!

There are 4 bloom heads there!  It is full of upcoming blooms!  So excited...

Which makes me realize I should watch my Christmas cactus ... it should bloom in a couple months !  Wonder if it is starting to have bloom heads on it???

Have a great rest of your week and thanks for stopping by!

More quilty posts to come... Cheers!
