Charlotte hit record temps since 1978 today! When I looked at the thermometer it was 92! The sun was shining and the sky was a beautiful blue. John and I decided it was too hot to walk the Greenway today and my back was bothering me. We decided to take a walk around where we live instead. I decided to take my trusty camera and snap some pics as I was walking. Here is what I saw today:
This little purple pansy is growing in the center park area of our townhome neighborhood.
Another little pansy looking all happy!
Pansies always make me smile they look so happy.
This is the time of year Carolina Jasmine starts to bloom and it is blooming in profusion this year! Here are some pictures from around the neighborhood.
I don't know the real name of this shrub but everyone seems to call it Pink Dancing Ladies. I love that name and they really do look like pink dancing ladies when the wind blows these shrubs!
My neighbors wisteria is creeping over the fence and it smells heavenly. It looks gorgeous also!
I forgot to mention John and I went to Lowe's and I bought these plants today:
Basil, Dianthus, 1 tomato plant, snapdragons, lobelia, petunias and cucumbers. I think this is a great start!
I just love the color of these petunias I bought! So bright and they will make a nice show in the courtyard.
That's it for my stroll today! I hope it was warm and sunny where you live too!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
