Locked Out.

I locked myself out of the house today.  I was expecting my son to be home and then realized that he was at work for a while yet.  At first I was quite frustrated because, well, this was not the first time this has happened and I fully intended to hide a key somewhere outside just in case it happened again.  So much for that idea.  

The good part of my dilemma was that it was a gorgeous fall day, a little breezy  but sunny and warm.  The bad part was that I really needed to use the um, you know, the facilities.  After texting my husband and then my son and then my husband and then talking on the phone to my son and then my daughter, I realized that I was just going to have to wait awhile until my son got home from work.  So I looked around me and enjoyed my little garden that has been cheerfully blooming all summer long and is still going!  Willed the frustration away and embraced the moment!

The geraniums have been so happy all season.  They are my hubby's fave.

These little ground cover beauties have just gone crazy and show no signs of slowing down.  

My far away daughter bought me a tea kettle full of succulents that are so amazing.

There were lots of babies from this mama so I transplanted some into my fairy garden.

I had to google how to transplant them.  I must have done it right because they all took.

There are tell tale signs of fall in my garden too.

It wasn't too long and my long legged son came striding down the sidewalk. 

Good thing, just in time.
