Deice in August

D - for "deice", which means melt, thaw out, or unfreeze. It has been a cool summer. I didn't get enough warmness, even in August, I am chilly. Some mornings, I sit by my kitchen window where the sun is shining through to "diece." Even the cream dispenser is warmer than my fingers. I hope it will at least stay in the 70's for a few more months so that we can make use of the new soda siphon. This thaw out seat is also where I sit to gazed at the beautiful flowers my SO planted this summer. Before you do the "awww", he did it for Trinity's Birthday party, not for me this time. The picture on the left is of T during her Birthday magic show when the magician made the bird appear.

I wanted to participate in ABC Wednesday to challenge myself, because it will make me have to come up with a word for each letter of the alphabet. I could have very well taken a picture of the meat in my freezer and used it as a sample of the word deice, but it isn't Self Sagacity's food post, food is reserved for Fridays. Now that I've finished rambling on - a word so many bloggers use, about the why, we can continue with the post.

Do you have Allysum in your yard? They make great ground covers, or enhancements to your garden. I see them often and in many gardens, except my own, only because I spent more time thinking about what to do. I hope to transplant some Allysum from my mom's yard to fill in some bald spots in my garden. Now that I can say my yards are prep, I could start adding my favorite colors and types of flowers to them.
