Flower shelf

Last Thursday at Guava Gardens, we had a potluck party. We have a party like this once every month. The guy who owns Guava Gardens Apartments is pretty social. His name is Robbie, and he attended this month's potluck.

After we all had finished eating, I noticed Robbie in the corner not talking to anybody. So, I went over and began a conversation with him about the flowers that I'm growing on my balcony.

When I mentioned that I have a bunch of potted impatiens growing on my balcony, Robbie hopped right on that one!

"Your flowers aren't on my balcony railing, are they?", Robbie asked.

I assured Robbie that my impatiens are growing on a wood board that is "sitting" on his balcony railing. This is not the truth. I told this lie to stay out of trouble with Robbie!

Buying wood
That afternoon I drove to Dixieline Lumber to actually buy the "wood board" that I had told Robbie my flowers were sitting on. "Oh what a wicked web we weave when first we practice to deceive!"

Dixieline also is a hardware store. I bought a couple of hummingbird feeders and iron hanging supports for those feeders too.

Now it is Sunday afternoon. All of my impatiens are sitting on the new balcony railing boards. So I am not a liar anymore!

Also, my two new hummingbird feeders are hanging and waiting for their first customers!

Note: Not even one hummingbird was seen today! :(

    1. Wendy,
      I've seen hummers looking for nectar in my impatiens. But these flowers don't have much food for hummers.

      Now when hummers find my two feeders with their super sweet nectar, I'm hoping to see bunches of birdies on my balcony!

    1. David,
      My place in Guava Gardens is just about perfect for this time of my life! Although only a studio size apartment, it is 4x larger than MsTioga. All that space to me is sooooo luxurious!
