I ordered 3 butterfly bushes yesterday. My sister informed me that these bushes get really, really big so I looked at the description and yes indeed, they grow quite large. The description says to plant them 6-7 feet apart as they grow at least that wide and that tall. Although they are gorgeous and I would love to see the hummingbirds and butterflies that they attract, I think I'm going to have to cancel the order. I live in a townhouse and I'm not sure that the association would accept these large bushes. I'm disappointed.

Spring seems to be more of reality now. It's been sunny and in the 40s and 50s. We even had rain on Friday. The big huge snowpile near the end of my driveway is gone. That doesn't mean that we won't get any more snow, it just means that if we do, it probably won't stick around for very long.

I found Mom's sunglasses today while I was doing laundry. I held them for a while and thought about her.

I just stopped in to say "hello" and "how're you doing", Robyn.

We're getting Spring weather here, in the high 70's all this week. Thinking about ordering those tomato hanging plants this year instead of digging up the yard.

Hi Robyn, Butterfly bushes are beautiful. They do, in fact, grow that large if you let them. However, if someone is willing to keep an eye on them, they can be trimmed and kept small and bloom just as beautiful to attract the hummingbirds and butterflys. I have two, and keep them trimmed to about two feet wide and two to three feet tall.

I kept my husband's wrist watch and sometimes listening to it.

I have things of my parents I can't bear to part with. Perfume, clothes. I still wear my dad's wedding ring on a chain around my neck. It's been there since he was in the hospital. I wear my mother's rings on my finger.
