Hello friends and family,
My birthday was on April 18th and I turned........fifty-one.... *cough* that was a tough one to swallow. Where do the years go? Just yesterday I was eighteen wasn't I?
I thought I would share with you what I picked out for my birthday this year. I had some things I thought I wanted but then I decided to get something or somethings that last so I chose to go to our local nursery and get the one thing I have wanted for quite a few years and one surprise item I didn't know I wanted until I saw it...
This is my mimosa tree! Yes I know, everyone says, 'they're so pretty but they're so messy!".. I don't care how messy they are. I think they are incredibly beautiful from the way God designed the leaves to the flowers He put on them. So I could give a hoot about any mess. The beauty and aroma outweighs it..
Right now he's a little guy but in a couple seasons he will be big and beautiful. I can't wait!
Then, as we were walking out this plant I had never seen before caught my eye. It was the only one there and I knew I had to have it. You know, kinna like the last little puppy in a cage at the shelter and the last thing you need is another dog but you take it home anyway?Yeah, kinna like that.. It's called a Pink Polka Dot Plant or so I am told and it must be female because it's temperamental. *laughs* It doesn't like sun or cold. So it's an indoor plant. Isn't she a beauty!
