We are going downtown to the Tucson Art Museum Complex to eat lunch at Witch Judy's restaurant. Her son is the best chef in town, as far as I am concerned. There is always something special to eat.
But it does mean that I have to behave and Tessie is NOT invited. She would just walk across the table and take what she wanted from everyone's plate.
So... I took her outside to tire her out, before I have to go.
I am getting ready to build a few Garden Totems. This is the one that she likes the best so far. I have not glued anything together yet. I was tempted to glue a lid on that one, but I probably wouldn't be able to get it off when I got back. And I still have a ways to go on that one. If you are interested in them, I started collection photos on my Pinterest site. I put "Garden Totems" in the search and found tons of ideas. Go look!
I immediately yanked it out and potted it in a proper pot. Believe it or not, I was running short on that type. The other one, I have millions of. They are growing all over the yard. This type didn't do so well with the winter weather.
I am still working on where I want the wrought iron urn.
I said to one of the nursery men that I wished that they had smaller ones. He grabbed a handful of the dead heads on one of the plants. Grinned at me and said, "Grow your own!"
Hey! He said I could. Gave me the seeds and I did it! These seeds went into my kitchen window in the middle of winter... I now have two Butterfly Bushes. Home grown. I can't wait for them to flower. The more butterflies the better!
I really wanted you to see the black rose tomatoes that I am growing. When the tomatoes are full grown, they will be a mixture of black and red... All in the same tomato. The one in the photo looks completely black. I think that as it gets larger it will get some red on it.
I have never seen one of these before, so I had to try it.
Anyway, I had better go get ready. See you tomorrow.
