Mmmmm….What’s That Smell!

pcp 10903

Hubby was at Walmart in Maryville, Missouri, (best Walmart I’ve ever been in by the way) he went down to help Doug get moved back in at college and he said he noticed a display of seasonal glade spray. He saw the Maple Pumpkin and Apple Cinnamon and thought immediately that it screamed “Mindy” (He knows my favorite smells) so he brought them home to me.  I didn’t know about them until later in the evening I am sitting in the living room and I smell this wonderful aroma, I keep thinking I’m imagining it.  Finally I asked Rusty what that smell was and he told me about these sprays he had got.  Oh my gosh, the Maple Pumpkin smells awesome! The whole world should smell like that! Ok, maybe not the whole world but at least my world! The Apple Cinnamon smells good too, but I want to buy some stock in the Maple Pumpkin! If I come across some more, I’m loading up!  I probably shouldn’t even be sharing this with you cause I don’t want you to make it to a store first and buy them out from under me! ;-)  Ok, You can get some, one can, maybe two, but just be sure to leave a bunch for me!

Morning Glories

The Morning Glories sure are pretty this morning with their vivid colors and little drops of rain. It’s like they appear to have sunshine pouring out the middle of them. How can you look at the beauty of a flower and not think it a miracle?!

Window Box

Here’s how my flowers started out…

and even with all the hot temperatures they managed to do really good!

\Of course they are the only flowers that did really good!

I don’t know why but it’s been a long time since I’ve planted flowers in my window box.  I guess I just thought they didn’t do well in them so I always just decorated it with other things, then one day my friend Angi said if she had a window box she would plant flowers in it, so I thought I would give it a try again. Thanks Angi, these flowers are dedicated to you!
