This has truly been an amazing week - some good, some really good and some a little scary.
I had a landscaping crew come in and weed all of my many flowerbeds and put in mulch. They look so neat and pretty now. I'm hoping now that I can keep them up the rest of the summer.
This mystery bush has been identified as a Southern Magnolia by many of you gardeners. Thanks. It still hasn't opened up the flowers. Will keep you posted.
Another unidentified plant is this....
it has clusters of little bulbs that bloom out into these...
And then there is this gorgeous bush - is it peonies?
My interesting week started out on Tuesday with 45 solid minutes of tornado sirens going off. Bella howled along with them the whole time. As a result of the high winds, this happened to my tree in the front yard.
This was the Oklahoma sky during this.
My sister Jeannie came on Wednesday and stayed until Saturday. We had a great time. We unpacked and put up alot of my unfinished boxes, we ate out alot of good food and of course we shopped. I will show you in a day or so what all I found on Saturday when we garage and estate saled.
After she left today, I went to the Tulsa Flea Market and took a couple of my red transferware pieces to have potted.
There is this sweet lady who sells succulents and if you bring a container or buy one at the flea market, she'll repot them for you.
She did this one with a hen and chicken only it is a species called spider web hen and chicken. You can see it better in the photo below.
This is the other one she did. She called this plant a lace necklace succulent.
So, that's where I have been this week - just goofing off and enjoying it tremendously.
