How has your day been? Work is crazy, but I'm loving it! I got new lights for my saltwater aquarium and it makes everything beautiful! They suffered a lot this summer because of renovations at the school. The construction crew had all the air off and we were hitting temperatures of 106! I lost ALL of the corals and at least 5 fish. I'm so happy to be back, and am happy to report that they have turned the air back on. Now I can really baby them, get the water parameters just right, and start replacing the animals we lost. I've been floating ice bags in the water to bring the temperature down. It's worked beautifully! I'm so exhausted when I get home that all I do is sit in my lazyboy and watch tv. Then I do everything in my power to stay up until 9:00 - haven't made it yet, maybe tonight will be the night!
The first photo is of a plant in the south called Hearts a Bustin'. In fall the little green balls will open to expose bright orange seeds surrounded by pink. They are really cool. They grow in the shade. My Stargazer Lillies were very pretty this year. Usually the deer get them, but this year I used a deer spray and NOTHING was eaten in my garden! I can't wait to plant tulips!
I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday. I'm participating in Outdoor Wednesday at A Southern Daydreamer, hope you'll pop over to see the other participants. Thanks for stopping by!
