Flowers and travelling

tommysmommy(Colorado)July 1, 2010

Doesn't it figure my first Santa Rosa flowers will open tomorrow as I get on a plane to see my grandson! My oriental lilies are ready to pop too! I hope there will be lots of beauitful flowers when I get home Monday. I'm going to see my beautiful family - yippeee!

Of course, that's exactly what happens in my garden when I have to leave.

Have a good trip!

Have a good time with your family. You'll have more blooms.

I'm not sure what I'll find when I get home next week. I hope the majority of the plants are in decent shape......... I haven't spoken to the kid that's taking care of the pets and plants.

I did stop by Pepper's and picked up about 15 new plants including a 7' Theobroma cocao that's covered in blooms. Not quite sure how I'm going to get that, the luggage and kids back home. Might have to leave the kids here. lol

Diane, lots of kisses to your GS! There should be some blooms when you get home, but meanwhile, is there someone that can take pictures?

Karyn, too much, wow 7' cocao!!!

I hope you're not flying Karyn! How you gonna transport a 7' tree?? Sounds really cool tho. Eloise I asked my sister if she has time, to take a few photos. There may be as many as 5-6 blooms open by the time I get home. Cool!

So there you are Diane, you will still get to see some blooms via pictures!

Speaking of pictures, wish someone would take a picture of Karyn carry all those plants she bought plus the 7 foot tree! Can someone text her kids, lol!

No flying. We are at the Delaware shore which is only a couple hours away and have 2 cars here. I'll take the plants and 2 kids. Bruce will take the other 3 kids. Not all ours, we allow the kids to bring friends when we go to the beach.

Diane I hope you are having a great time.

I'm having a wonderful time! I'll have photos not only of the flowers, also the grandbaby - we're having such fun with him! Karyn you should know better than to shop for plants while you're away; next time take a 3rd vehicle and driver and you can really fill it up!
