“Buttercups and Daisies.” Mary Howitt (English poet, 1799–1888)
TIME: 11:34 AM
PLACE: Front porch
SUBJECT: Osteospermum hybrid “Orange Symphony”
I bought flowers on Thursday to plant in my large planter on the front porch for our wine party yesterday. As promised, I went with oranges and pinks. This is one of the orange flowers, a Cape Daisy hybrid. You can see the petunia “Pink Madness” there on the right. I also have some marigolds (Medium Orange), a zinnia (Magellan Mix), two geraniums (Maestro Lavender Parfait), and a Lamium maculatum in the planter. I am loving the color combo
On a sadder note, Alex the squirrel passed away sometime early Saturday morning. Poor little guy…I was so hoping he would make it. Nevertheless, I am extremely proud of HH for trying his best to save him. HH buried him in the backyard and SD had me write “Alex” on a large rock as a grave marker. RIP you cute little tree rat.
