This morning when I went outside to drink a cup of coffee on the patio - the air was cool and it seemed like the heat of summer has moved on out. It was 59 degrees and nearly jacket weather. The sun came out quickly and suddenly before you knew it, it was over 80 degrees outside. Certainly better than the 104's of last week - but can't wait til it feels like fair weather.
Last April at our annual Mckinney Garden Club plant and seed exchange, I picked out a little 4" pot of Texas Rose Rock....it had a few sprigs and was about 6" tall. I decided to plant it next my lamppost near other little bits of pink plants...JFK rosebush and also, pink salvia. Here it is just over 4 months later in full bloom and gorgeous. I've read its very easy to propagate and transplant around the garden. Great great filler plant.

A few months ago, I decided to take on two of my closets...my sewing room and master closet. First, my little boring closet in my sewing room....I was inspired by the beautiful craft closet redos on pinterest and across the web....especially this one...Pam Garrison's and this one...Everything Etsy! love her use of wire baskets. I opted for the scrapbook paper instead of paint, stair risers and iron shelf brackets from Hobby Lobby.
