The Green Mess


 

Considering I live in New Mexico, where it can look brown and dry a lot, seeing all this green as I look outside my sunroom/office window is sort of refreshing. Our pond is overrun with water lilies. About 5 years ago a fellow bought almost all of them from us to put in a new housing development. As you can see, it did no permanent damage. I think I need to promote that happening again soon! Yes, there are fish trying to swim amidst that green mess. And, there are even flowers hiding somewhere. I did manage to get a pose from one of them.

 

Things to do:

             Remove many lilies as soon as possible.

             Find the fish.

             Head back over to myPotsandPlants.com to shop for pond and fountain goodies.

They have some amazing creatures to keep the fish and lilies company.

Hanna, the Hippo Spitter

Or how about …

Quack, The Duck

These two are only an example of the great selection of accessories you will find at myPotsandPlants.com. My work is cut out for me, and I will be sure to blog any progress.  Watch out Green Mess! Here I come.

Shady Spectacles

 

Harlem

Blocking out the sun’s glare is almost as old as the sun itself. Exposure to UV light can increase the chances of cataracts, macular degeneration, conjunctival growths and certain cancers in the eye. New studies show that high altitude, mid-day exposure and some medications can make things worse. Why take that chance? Get some polarized protection at Sunglass WarehouseYou can buy them with prescription lenses, to wear over your normal glasses or just for fun. Even if you love to buy a top brand pair, having extras or substitutes is a great idea.  

Sunglass Warehouse is the place to visit!  You can get both protection and fashion. Their prices are so affordable you can have a pair handy anytime. Right now, they have many styles for under $20, and a code to use to get 15 % off your order. You will be amazed at the wide selection, and the options for protection and style. FREE SHIPPING on orders over $25!

THOSE DOG DAYS…

 

 

 

If asked, the dog that resides at my house would certainly agree that the dog days of summer have arrived.

It has been hot and humid (even here in Albuquerque) for days. Afternoons call out loud for a person to nap along with those dogs. Before I heed to that invitation, I want to remind all readers that the online places we refer you to have great ideas for summertime.

And if your windows are dirty, I always suggest that you HIRE A PROFESSIONAL. 

If you insist on washing your own windows, please use a squeegee and a wetbar. And, the suggestion of using vinegar and wadded up newspapers that you see in a lot of “how to” info is really not a good one.Best tip…HIRE A PROFESSIONAL. They are not expensive and it really does improve your outlook on life!

Planning For Fall

crocus

So, I am convinced I brought the hot New Mexico weather to the Pacific Northwest. Here in Portland, it is probably going to have record breaking temperatures this weekend. The windows will be closed and the AC’s on for sure! However, it is not too soon to plan ahead for what you want to plant outside those windows this fall. I love crocuses. BloomingBulb has some great fall planting specials right now. Besides finding the bulbs you want, you can learn where to plant what, and when. Those pretty crocuses are on sale and the bulbs will get shipped to you in the fall, mid September or so.

daffodil

Think daffodils!

amaryllis-reg-052317

Amaryllis too!

You will love their selection for fall, so plan ahead and take advantage of the great deals.

Meanwhile, I am hoping to see some pretty flowers, even in the heat, as I head up the Columbia River Gorge to an open house for the Girl Scout camp I spent a lot of time at many years ago-what memories.This should be an interesting adventure!

For Your Windows Weather: HOT

 Bali Exterior Solar Roller Shade Lattice 5%

The heat is on! It has been reaching about 95 degrees so far this week here in Albuquerque.  Forecast states it will reach 108 in Phoenix today. Wherever you are, summer is here and you will have some hot weather now or soon. If you have windows that face south or west especially, you should consider some exterior solar shades from BlindsExpress.com.

Bali Exterior Solar Roller Shades Style Boxwood 5% and 7% openness

If you block the sun’s rays before they get to the window, deck or patio, you stop heat transference, and that keeps the inside cooler. Extra benefit is lower air-conditioning cost. You can get low or high openness (5% to 10%) depending on the specific situation. Even the 10% blocks out 90% of the harmful UV rays.

 

  Bali Exterior Solar Roller Shades Style Shoji 10% openness

The fabric on these effective solar shades is sun fade resistant, and they come with sturdy, stainless steel cord chains. Right now they are on sale for 15% off at BlindsExpress.com, and SHIPPING IS FREE!

Stay cool, protect belongings from sun damage and keep the costs down all at the same time! Check out all their selections for any shades or blinds.

Hanging Outside My Windows

Self Watering Hanging Basket

I love hanging flower baskets on the porch or patio. What I don’t like is when I forget to water them. I have never planted my own, but I do see that in my near future! Now I just have to figure out what gorgeous specimens I am going to plant. 

 

myPotsandPlanters.com has these wonderful self watering planters made from shatter-resistant polypropylene in a variety of colors. Each planter holds 8 quarts of potting soil. Your watering chores are minimal because of a dual-action wick system that taps from a 1 quart reservoir. There is a refill hole at the bottom to make the refill process easy as well. Oh, and the 18″ hanging cord is included!

Pretty sure I need at least 3 of these, and that means 5 per cent off! And,any order over $49 qualifies for FREE SHIPPING!

What pretty flowers will you use?

Windows for Your Eyes

 

                                                             

Victoria

Blocking out the sun’s glare is almost as old as the sun itself.  From using a flat object with slits to thin tinted quartz, or even jewels, has been documented in history. Early versions of sunglasses were also used to cover up the eyes for protection or anonymity. In the 1920’s, Sam Foster found a prime market on the beaches in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Both for protection and fashion, sunglasses became very popular. Now, not many of us survive without them. You can buy them with prescription lenses, to wear over your normal glasses or just for fun. Even if you love to buy a top brand pair, having extras or substitutes is a great idea.

     Cape Cod

Sunglass Warehouse is definitely fun! When we are outside the windows, and in the bright sunshine we need protection and fashion. Their prices are so affordable you can have a pair handy anywhere. Right now, they have many styles for under $20, and a code to use to get 15 % off your order. You will be amazed at the wide selection, and the options for protection and style.

Protect those windows for your eyes, and have fun too.
