Blankety Blanks and Bountiful Blooms

Blankety Blanks
We really enjoy participating in McGuffy’s Reader 15 and Meowing Friendly Fill-Ins blog hop! We are very excited to share our answers and look forward to reading what others share.
1.         Meetings are something that I don’t miss from my working days.
2.         Rules are important to prevent chaos but some are silly and made to be broken.
3.         The best time to be happy is today.
4.         I have learned that there is nothing funny about hitting your funny bone but when someone bumps their head, it is usually good for a laugh.
Bountiful Blooms
We are joining Da DB Boyz for Flower Friday. Don’t forget to stop and smell the flowers.
We have three giant pots of begonias. They last until the first frost so sometimes I have them until February!
I love my daylilies. I have them in several of my backyard gardens. They make me smile.
I planted my lantana bush years ago under a shrub in my front yard. I had no idea it would get so big but I love it.

    1. Isn't that the truth! My meetings were in the school library where I worked so I got to sit at my own desk. FYI~ Teachers like to talk during meetings. LOL!

  16. What beautiful flower photos! Good capture of the insects too - what is that green bug on the daylily? I couldn't tell if it was a grasshopper or not, but it sure has some long antennas! :)

    1. It amazes me how sturdy of a flower the begonias are since they look so delicate. I had some that grew one entire year since it never got cold here!

  23. Fill-ins are so fun aren't they!? It reminds me of Mad Libs - do you remember those? That was one of my favorite things to play. Beautiful flowers! I had Lantana's in Phoenix where they grew all year round. They got so big and flowered most of the year. They're drought tolerant too.

    1. I love Mad Libs too! It is a good thing they are drought tolerant. We've had a good bit of rain this summer but August is usually very dry and hot.
