extreme makeover home edition update . . .

. . . just a couple of things:
1} R.I.P. little
gerbera daisy . . .
. . . i only knew you {alive}
for a couple of weeks, but
sleep well knowing that . . . . . . you were replaced
in the blink of an eye . . .
{for free - thanks to home depot's $ back guarantee}
. . . with a new greener/brighter specimen,
and after a little drink . . .

. . . you're good to go . . .

{or hopefully - to stay!}

2} this is a spider mum . . .


. . . but, this . . .
. . . this seems to be
a mum with spiders . . .
{by the way, this lovely plant
was left on our doorstep
with no card
a couple of weeks ago.
thank you so much
to the nice person
who did that . . .
we ♥love♥ you}
. . . however,
we don't ♥love♥
whatever critters
are making their home
in your blooms . . .
so . . . this is going to hurt you
more than it hurts me . . .
{wait - isn't that supposed to be the other way around?}
. . . decapitation -
"it's 'capi' was 'detated'". . .
. . . i think that was a funny line
from an old episode
of 'the office' . . .

. . . a much needed drink of water, too . . .
. . . and a more permanent

{though decidedly less prominent}

location . . .

. . . just another lesson

in the circle of life . . .

. . . more updates to come . . .

I believe the sweltering HOT weather is a huge factor as to why to some of those flowers are dying. I thought it was supposed to be nice & cool in the fall?! I'm glad you were able to replace those gerber daisies...my favorite!

Some of my flowers died too. Maybe because after I planted them it got up to 95 degrees again and my nieces are running around in their sun dresses today because it is still the inbetween not sure if it wants to be hot or cold weather. Aren't we supposed to have out jackets by now?

Gerbs are a toughy in AZ to keep alive & pretty. But they are worth goin' back to HD to get new ones!

I missed your blog greatly. Thanks for coming back.
