It rained like crazy here in Maryland this morning and I figured it was a sign to stay in my pajamas as long as possible. So of course, I complied.
It was also too wet to do any cleaning, although I did try out the new vacuum (which worked fine, by the way). Right before it began pouring, I went outside and saw these lovely squash blossoms that are blooming out front. I laid a towel down to keep me dry as I took pictures from the ground. I didn’t want to get my pajamas wet, you know.
We didn’t plant this vine. It appeared recently and has since taken over the front of the house but we’ve left it grow to see what it would become.
I’m guessing it’s a pumpkin.
I remember my husband carving a couple of jack-o-lanterns on the porch last October after he’d come home from the hospital. He just told me that he remembers throwing some of the seeds behind the azalea bush out front.
I remember it very well now. And it wasn’t until I went back and read [this post] that I also remembered how I’d felt at the time.
Oh, hello there.
There’s a storm coming, little bee. Just wanted to let you know.
In other happenings today, I took an absolutely delicious two hour nap. I rarely ever take naps but I must have needed it. It was wonderful with the cool breeze coming in the window and I had just looked at all these beautiful photos of Maine on flickr and dreamed of being there.
So you see how exciting it was around here today?
Yes, I’m pretty sure it’s a pumpkin. I’ll keep you posted, k?
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
Thanks for your visits. It’s always good to have you stop by.
