For lack of a better excuse ...

... Bob mowed and trimmed the grass so what better thing to do than take some pictures.

I guess I'd be growing something else if I didn't have bougainvillias and phlox, but I can't think of anything that would give more abundant blooms all summer long ..

Easy to grow Chocolate plant makes a nice foliage plant in a pot ...

And now just for fun:

I was surprised to find a coconut meringue pie look-alike in the yard. Can you guess what it is?

If this morning glory could talk what do you think it be saying?

Looking forward to your answers :-) Prize to be announced ... LOL

Do you really need an excuse?

Your meringue smells fungal to me. I'll pass on piece of that pie!

The morning glory looks like one of my kids coming up to me and saying, "Look at my lips mom! Do I look like a fish?!"

Did you see this photo over in the cottage garden forum of the husband mowing? (It was in the Favorite Photos 2010 post.) You should have taken a picture of Bob!

Here is a link that might be useful: Photo from Cottage Garden Post

RE: For lack of a better excuse ...

LOL, bobbi that's a good one.

That morning glory could be saying "this looked so easy at first!"

Um, I'll pass on that fungi pie too.

RE: For lack of a better excuse ...

WHAT? And I was just going to cut ya'll a big piece! (Sounds like something our kids would do as an alternate to wanting us to eat their mud pies ... LOL!)

I love both your captions! Hahaha ... those are GREAT.

Here's a full picture the pretty 'pie' you're missing ... ;-)

RE Dress to impress yard man ...

Bobbi, I had not seen the picture, but that's a great photo to put a caption to. Looks like the poor guy just got home from work, took off his vest and coat and his wife said,

"I've got gardening friends coming in 30 minutes and you BETTER get that yard mowed or ELSE!!!!"

Bob gave it this one: "Here I am a Harvard Ph.D. and I still have to cut the grass!"

Did the photo have a story with it?

It was just a post on your favorite 2010 photos. She didn't share a story, but there were several comments!

That fungus is gorgeous-wish my meringues turned out that well!

RE: For lack of a better excuse ...

The morning glory is saying, "I'm innocent, I *swear*!"

RE: For lack of a better excuse ...

oh Great looking yard Roselee !! I enjoy every picture that you put up...

I think the glory is saying .. "Hello, I can use some space here !!"

RE: For lack of a better excuse ...

Hey Wilo and Ibheri, I like both of those captions for the poor entrapped morning glory flower! Thanks :-)

Any more?
