Like a Box of Chocolates!

So, today I applied for two more jobs and tomorrow my family comes.  After that, it is some catch-up work with school.  I can’t believe I am done in 6 weeks – I’ll have my Doctorate in Nursing Practice!  It’s wonderful and frightening.  The downside of online school is that it can be isolating.  It seems especially pronounced now that we are almost done.

So, I promise myself one trip away from the dogs every couple of days.  It gets me out with real humans and no leashes.  Now, I love my dogs but I also enjoy feeling human.  So, today I visited a local nursery that is having a plant sale.  Four dollar daylilies – cool.  I’ve decided to put Stellas in a couple more of my containers so they have season long bloomers.  It may be good motivation to water them more – and get more blooms from the more specialty plants.

So, welcome to the yard Orange Flurry (in bloom today with scapes and buds):

And, another couple of Stellas.  I thought it might be interesting to show the ones I got over the weekend with the new one.  The new one is definitely more orange tone.

The other new ones have buds and scapes, but not in bloom today . . . so we wait.  And one is a mystery label one, so like Forest Gump said . . .

Other blooms are Pizza Crust:

With any luck, I’ll have blooms until Jack Frost shows.  Here is to hoping I have a job by then, too! And, by next spring there will be more flourishing at my home than ever!
