This is a Buckeye Bush that grows on the Jackson Hill. Mrs. Jackson said the Humming Birds love it. I had never seen one of these bushes before and it is a beautiful food source for our little feather friends.
In the previous post I mentioned I could not wait for my plumbago by the front door to bloom, SO I went back and found a picture of it from last year.
Puppy got a job for the summer in construction as a general laborer for a Home Improvement Company. He worked really hard and long on Monday and Tuesday but the last couple of days with the rain he has not had to work. Today, I plan to get him to help me copy files to be sent to Cousin Corn Dog who will prepare me a website for my Jan 09 Show. I will let everyone know when it is up and running.
I have only got less than seven months to complete all the details.
Yes, I have been in shows before but never have I had one to call my own until this coming January and I am excited and overwhelmed at the same time. My best friend, Carol who was to be the guidance in the reception has had all kind of illnesses so everyone, put her in your Prayers and Thoughts to get better. All of us who enjoy her company have missed her bubbly attitude.
The Kitty Justice is that I am running as fast as I can but I must be stuck on a treadmill. Peace to all.

A very lovely photo of the fog. I very much like it!

I hope you friend Carol gets better soon!!

If Puppy worked her in the rain forest of Sitka he would find out soon that we never stop for rain. If we did we would never get anything done. I came home yesterday soaked to the bone, but I learned years ago that I do dry out. So, I don’t mind getting a little wet.

Have superb weekend!

Dear Dianne ~~ Loved the photos. and I have had Plumbago in the past. The blue is so pretty. I hope your friend Carol gets well very soon. I will include her in my prayers. I hope your son was able to help with your show. Thank you for your comments and unlike you, I don't mind grocery shopping. It gets me out of the house once a fortnight and I get to see what is on offer. Rising prices mainly. Take care, my friend,
Love, Merle.

Thanks for your wishes for Carol. I think maybe I will send Puppy to you each summer so he can work everyday. Bet you did not see that one coming. Peace
I tried to edit the writing around the first picture but Ken would not let me.

I love tiny blue flowers as they make me feel happy. Thanks for adding my friend Carol to your prayers. Maybe there will come a time when I enjoy grocery shopping but I do not see it in the near future. You have to take them(groceries) off the shelf, put in the cart, take them out of the cart,into the car, out of the car into the house, then put them away. After all that handling I am tried of groceries. That just me.

Send puppy this way. We will find work for him, and the way it is going this year so far it looks like you would get wet. (LOL)

But, family is important so, maybe he best stay home. I have to admit though I always have a slight chuckle when I hear that construction crews shut down for rain. Growing up in Colorado I remember doing the same thing, sometimes just at the hint of rain.

Lady Di,

The photos of the fog is awesome. I enjoy seeing your Tennessee mountains when they are blanketed in fog. I have seen this many times in real life and it is a beautiful sight.

Your photos of the flowers are lovely. Thanks so much for sharing the beauty of your area.

Have a wonderful weekend.

I guess you do get a good laugh about construction being rained out. You would also get a good laugh about snow in the South. First flake, we close everything we can.
Have a good weekend. Peace.

Thank you for your kind words and I am happy that you have seen our hills blanketed in the fog. Peace

I like Plumbago also. It is semi-diciduous here and if it goes to the ground completely that it doesn't come up til almost summer and blooms until December. A true and brilliant blue. MB
