(this photo courtesy finegardening.com) This is what a buddleia bush looks like. I started mine from a 3" plant a few years back. It quickly got huge and my husband got disgruntled and whacked it off at the roots..and I was then also disgruntled! It did come back and is once again up to roof line height. It is nicknamed butterfly bush for a reason..it really pulls them in! It looks a bit like a lilac bush and it comes in other colors, but I think purple is the most common.
Now for the Oh Man it's Friday part.. I was awoken this morning with my daughter freaking out that there was no water and HOW was she to get ready for work?! I got up and went downstairs to the electrical box to throw circuit breakers for the well pump but no good. Then I noticed her dog had taken a poo on the floor by the front door sometime in the night about the same time I realized it was 10 after 8 and my alarm had not gone off and my son was late for his first day of school! Aakk! Let the fun morning begin! I called a couple plumbing guys..one just had a voice mail and the other said he'd be over. Since that was 7 hours ago and he never showed up, I don't think he'll be getting the job! My husband is now down there banging about, so hopefully he can figure it out. *sigh* So here is hoping you are having a better day than me! Overall, I have to step back and look and see how blessed we actually are, take a breath, and carry on! 'Til next time! Julia
