Photo Upload is Working!!!

Finally, I can upload pictures again. I shot these over the weekend of my sparse flowers that are in bloom...

I can't remember the name of this lovely dahlia, but it is now occupying a vase on my desk....


I think this was a left over amarylis from one Christmastime. I planted it in the ground and forgot about it. This year it expanded and sent up 3 blossom clusters. Maybe next year, I'll be brave enough to cut one stem and bring it inside....


This is a Just Joey rose which is usually a great producer of blossoms... however, that requires water which the roses have not been receiving much of...


This one is a little blurry, but I just love the colors together... the deep purple of the Grandpa Ott morning glory with the vivid orange of the Swan's Olympic Flame Dahlia... which is an outstanding producer. I probably should divide it this fall.


As far as the pregnancy progress, I'm at 34 weeks and as big as a house. I have to take it really, REALLY easy because all signs indicate an early delivery and my OB is on vacation all next week! So no stairs, resting most of the afternoons, not lifting things and trying to keep my contractions to a minimum. I'm trying to do some crafting, but it's hard to find a comfortable position in which to work. I'm still knitting a bit and trying to get some sewing done. My parents are arriving on Saturday and will stay for quite awhile and help with projects and general baby prep. Thank goodness!!!! The house needs cleaning too....
