Getting it Together

Today when I was commenting on someone's blog, the verification word was "scronad." Now there's a unique morphed word! I don't know quite how to use it, but I didn't want to be the only one with that word/picture in my head.

I haven't been stitching much on Tree of Life. It's all backstitch now. I've been reading some and gardening some and sort of staring off into space a lot.

Here's a photo of that promising rhododendron from May 20:


And the front yard:

You may remember when we planted all this. I thought we had put those roses in three years ago, but it was only two. Yes, you need these, they grow themselves--no watering, no pruning, no fertilizer. (They said to prune them every three years, so I've got some work next spring. Actually, I have work as soon as that rhododendron loses its blooms.)

Maybe later today I'll get myself together to do a report on the card making/scrap utilization project. Maybe I will never be together again...

LOL Thank you for sharing that lovely verification word!

Scronad, huh? Do you suppose the next person had gotum?

Your flowers look great. When we travel to other states it really comes as a shock how much more vibrant the greenery is elsewhere. Even though we have year round blooms, there always seems to be a dullness to the landscape here.

Beautiful flowers! I hate back stitching, so I feel your pain - I'd rather stare into space as well......

Oh gee Anna, thanks a bunch. Now I have *scronad* stuck in my head.

(That doesn't sound right, does it?)

Beautiful rhodies and roses!

Scronad = person who spends too much time sitting around in his lovesac.

Will "scronad" ever leave my brain?

Nice rhodies!
