2020 Hindsight- Part Two
Hello. I'm back again with Part Two of my 2020 year in review starting with July. We had no 4th of July fireworks. I celebrated with a new mask for Summer and a new hair color. My hair is going white and my hairstylist Jean and I decided that I should not go with permanent hair color anymore. I have her put semi permanent color on my hair and the grow out will be more subtle.
It was a great month for the garden. My Asiatic lilies grew tall and fragrant. My condo neighbor said he loved the big tall, spiney flowers. At least, he noticed.
I fought for more patio time, difficult with four units sharing one small patio space. I only went out when I could be alone. Early afternoon was the best time. I was working from home so it worked well.
My sister got lobster rolls one day and gave me one. Who knew a Stop & Shop lobster roll could taste so good?
Another view of the garden. I had my best year with the hydrangeas. Was it the blossom booster I gave it or the mild Winter? Not sure, but I gave them lots of water!
I killed it with the lilies this year! Oh, I already said that but I am so proud of myself. I usually can't grow anything!
I enjoyed daily walks around the neighborhood. A neighbor created some kindness rocks and put them out on her steps.
Funny story about this pic. Every day I would find a small veggie or two on the patio table. I thought the chippies and squirrels were feasting on our veggie garden and then deciding they didn't like what they picked. One day I saw a bunch of veggies on the table so I asked my condo neighbor Michelle if she ever caught the animals picking the veggies. She said she picked them. They weren't ripe yet so she left them out to ripen and here I was blaming the animals!
My neighbor, the floral designer's, house always looks so pretty but especially after a snowstorm. This is my view from the dining room window. I just love her red barn.
Here's a pic of the Mill 77 shopping event.
They even decorate the alleyway next to their restaurant.
It was cold but we had fun searching the night sky and seeing the constellations. I always think the Winter sky is spectacular.
