Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day – ‘Hy’ and ‘Dry’

Anticipation is what I like best about vacations. I’m not a ‘Wow that’s a great surprise – I’ll pack a bag now’ kinda gal. You’ve taken away half of the fun if I can’t think about a vacation before we go. Nonetheless, if any of you are thinking of sending me a surprise all expense paid vacation, I will gladly accept it. I’m perfectly willing to try again and report the results back to you.

This week, I had another opportunity for anticipation. You may have read yesterday’s In The Category Of I Think I Can. If not, I’ll wait while you go check it out. You’ll see that anticipation in regards to my hibiscus blooming has been going on for several days. I’m getting everything I can out of the anticipation phase on this one.

With that said, I am happy to report…

We have another day of anticipation ahead of us. Aren’t you glad you stopped in today so you have something to look forward to tomorrow? I promise to keep you in the anticipation loop.

Hy, my hibiscus, is still in the ‘I think I can’ mode. His spirits are elevated, and he is proceeding according to God’s plan in his delivery of a new bloom. For now, lets check on him with our hy-cam for an up-to-the-minute report on his progress…

Please share the anticipation phase with me and I just KNOW Hy will meet his goals soon, and produce a lovely bloom for all to see.

For today though, I’ll have to defer the Bloom Day Category Excellence Award to warm sunny spots like Billy Goodnick’s Santa Barbara area. I still contend our Chicagoland layer of snow makes for a beauty of its own, so Billy, here is my backyard view for you to drool over. Betcha Billy Goodnick would love if you’d send him plane tickets to Chicago, so he can come experience this beauty himself.

As for me, Mike and I are off to Morton Arboretum, for an inside breakfast with a stunning outside view.

  • I think Hy will certainly meet his goal. Have a happy GBBD.

  • Your snowy garden is beautiful. And I hope your hibiscus doesn’t make you wait too long. I know the silent suffering of anticipating a bloom that won’t open!

    Always enjoy reading your blog. Loved the snow pictures especially since we don’t see snow anymore. And Cameron is a beautiful boy. Congratulations to you and Mike. Regarding the vacation, you and Mike are always welcome to stay at our condo in Sunrise, FL. It wouldn’t be all expense paid but the sleeping arrangements would be free. And though I couldn’t promise you that we would change the sheets everynight. I could promise you a few free meals and my cooking. Which is my number 1 speciality. 6 beautifully heated pools, tennis court, health club are some of the free amenities. So come on down….call for more details. Love to you and your family. Sandy and Len
