A parcel came in the mail the other day and inside I found this beautiful fairy and a lovely card from a friend. You know who you are and thank you. She will be added to my fairy collection.
Hubby was a little late getting me something. He picked this up on Wednesday. It is an electric roaster that sits on the counter top. I will get a lot of use out of it and just love it. I'm going to be trying it out soon.
I've always wanted a red tea kettle. I've been watching for them to go on sale. Leave it to Mom to find one. This kettle holds three times the water my old one did and it whistles, so I won't forget it. It will also go great with my kitchen decor if I ever get it repainted.
This plant is an inky fingers coleus. Brandon grew it in horticulture class and gave it to me for my birthday last Wednesday when I picked him up from school. He said, "It's for your birthday, Grandma. Just take it home. Your birthday is Monday." Sweet boy. Now if I can just keep it alive. LOL Brandon also explained that there are over 300 kinds of coleus.
Has anyone ever heard of a "tender perennial?" Brandon and I were looking at kale last weekend and I told him to ask his teacher if it was an annual or perennial. He told me that it is classed as either an annual or a tender perennial, which means if it is a mild winter, it may survive, but won't survive a harsh winter. Go figure. I do know that sometimes annuals will reseed themselves but didn't know they were called tender perennials.
