Color Potential

This makes me so excited, but also so nervous. I’m really hoping we make it through mum season without an early freeze this year.

The last couple of years we’ve gotten freezes early enough to kill off the flowers before they’d barely even bloomed so I didn’t get time to enjoy them. Sadly, it doesn’t take much and these are done. Even a lighter freeze kills off all the flowers and buds.

We don’t have any threats of freezing just yet, so I’m going to enjoy these as much as I can!

As if I wasn’t busy enough with book release stuff, I have to throw in my normal, every day stuff, too. That seems to have piled up into a mass of phone calls I need to make for appointments, dealing with problems with my web host, work on the design for the kids’ science club t-shirt, work on designing a jewelry piece (the first in VERY long time), and sketching out a list of about 10 other projects on my to do list. All of that was just yesterday and I didn’t even come close to getting it all done so I’m working on the rest of it today.
