While I was MIA

Thursday, my son J called to see what I was doing. He planned to spend the day with me, watch an old movie and catch up on things. I was pretty tickled! He came a bit later and while we were talking, somebody pulled into the driveway. I sent him outside to see what it was they needed. When he came back in, my friend Ruth was right behind him! I haven't seen her since the last time she came down - a little over 3 years ago. What a super surprise! Needless to say, we didn't watch the movie. We sat and chatted the rest of the time until he had to go. I called DH and asked him to bring home supper and he was just as happy to hear about our visitor as I was!
 We had a great visit. It's funny, we talk for hours on the phone, yet found all kinds of things to talk about. 
 I figured as long as she was here, she could take some of those Naked Ladies home with her to see if they would work at her house. She's going to plant them on the south side of her house close to her foundation and mulch over the winter. Maybe they will make it. 
She's on her way back home now, good thoughts sent for a safe trip home to Minnesota.

Have a most lovely weekend, folks!

  3. Wow...visit from son and old friend, that was awesome. I hope you had a great visit with both. Naked Ladies, I have one but mine don't come up like that, mine has no leaves and it springs up later in the season.

    1. It wasn't time to move them, but I have so many crowded together they weren't doing well and she thought she would try as long as she was here. They all still had their first foliage on. They normally don't bloom until the end of July after the foliage is dried and gone.

  8. I've just finished reading a novel where the murderer leaves his female victims naked, so naked ladies buried under mulch near Ruth's foundation made me giggle a bit.
    It's nice to have someone you can talk and talk and talk with. I'm usually struck dumb when I have to carry a conversation.
