The First Day of School

They are off back to books and teachers. The new haircuts don't want to lie down. The house is clean and quiet.

The garden must know it is a special day. These will be blooming this afternoon or early evening. Stay tuned, I will post the picture.

My rose of Sharon bloomed. This little tree takes so much abuse. It is on a dry, hot, south facing wall and unfortunately gets too much shade from a peach tree. Poor thing never gets water. The recent rains must have given it what it needs.
The bromiliad a neighbor gave me made a pup. I need to go out and transplant it.

Here is my favorite coffee cup given to me by a sister. I think it says it all.
