Whew! Was that a Weekend that just flew by?

We were so busy this week-end, that it came and went in a flash. Saturday we drove to Greensboro NC to the Guitar Center. Of course I forgot my camera so no pictures of that trip. We took the scenic route instead of the fastest route and it was so enjoyable. Yngwie bought a guitar, a Fender Telecaster with his hard earned money!
Sunday I went to see my Grandmother and we had a great time walking around her yard looking at her flowers. She has the prettiest tiger lillies. I happened to catch a visitor checking out the lillies too. Her butterflies are almost tame around her. She can reach out and touch their wings and they don't fly away. My favorite of her flowers are these ornamental peppers. She has them in purple and white, but the purple are my favorite! I have some growing from some seeds she saved for me, but mine haven't bloomed yet. She is fretting about them some because she was sure she had planted some red ones too. Maybe she gave me the red seed. We shall see. Not much time to post this afternoon as the tomatoes in the garden are calling my name!
Have a blessed evening.
Linda

The Tiger Lilies are beautiful! I admire alll these lovely gardens so much. I'm just a little envious of the green thumbs so many bloggers seem to have!

Beautiful garden-love those purple peppers.
Wish I could tame my butterflies-some do land on me for a second or so.
