Poppies and Columbine

Thursday was another….”let’s make lemonade out of lemons” …. day. Nothing awful ….. just my yearly trip to the GYN…. very important to do but yucky all the same!

So after that appointment and a trip to the pharmacy was over, we decided to start our weekly pilgrimage to a local nursery. A couple Poppies and a couple of Columbine and my early spring weakness for plants was satiated…..for this week!

I just popped them into whatever pots I could find real quick for a spot of color on the porch until I get the planted today.

Later, we found at a new deli in town…..a franchise called New York NY Fresh Deli. It was pretty darn good! I ordered a “Big City BLT” with herb mayonnaise and avocado. Hubby ordered a Cuban Panini ( pork, ham, and provolone). Then we swapped halves. They were both yummy. We will definitely go back. (No I didn’t have my camera…..figured you’d just salivate all over your computers, anyway!)

After we got home, I took another step in getting the porch ready for summer ….. some twinkly lights, ivy, and grapevine. I will try to get a more romantic picture when a warm evening arrives :-).

Have a Great Weekend Everyone! ((hugs)) Rosie

  8. Rosie, your little package is on my front porch waiting for Tim the postman to pick it up. I’m glad you like the new dishcloths I just listed.

    Those poppies are so pretty. The closeups look like paper flowers. They won’t grow here. I love your porch. I wish I was close enough to visit!

    I’m sitting here eating my lunch as I catch up on blogs. It’s a good thing because your deli sandwich sounded to die for!!

    PS Did you switch to WordPress recently? My son is twisting my arm to switch. Would love to hear your thoughts.

  21. Hello Rosie, what beautiful poppies! I can’t wait to see your columbine bloom. I started the McKanna Giants from seed, last year, but they won’t bloom until this year. I am so excited. I also started some poppies from seed, and I don’t think they are blooming this year either…

    Have a great Sunday!


  22. These pictures speak to me! The poppies remind me of California where I grew up and the columbines remind me of the Rocky Mountains, where I now live. The photos are absolutely beautiful. The salmon colored poppy is one of my favorites. What a blessing to have that much beauty surrounding you. Thanks for sharing it with us!
