Miller County

Sure is dry here....
I am all about plants and stuff, but I think they need to trim/cut down this bush! haha
One day this week Richard and I went to a neighboring county so he could do some deed research stuff.  The county seat is in the middle of nowhere it seems, and was made worse by a bridge being closed....I have not been to this town probably since high school, so I was really surprised when we came out of the wilderness and came across their courthouse.....built in 2003.  This is not the entire building, the jail/sheriff's offices are not shown in this picture.

Luck of the Draw

The local pharmacy sponsored a health fair yesterday and my daughters and I attended. It was a nice deal
with lots of vendors.  Several of them had drawings for gifts baskets and I was lucky enough to win one!  I never win anything, so this was a real surprise!

Morning Mess

This is the sight that greeted me on the back deck this morning....I had the two hanging baskets on the bench and something got into one of the hanging part of the basket is broken....hopefully I re-potted them good enough that the plants will be ok.....
Whatever animal it was also got into the aloe plant.....this is the second time that has happened. At least this time it didn't knock the whole deal off the shelf and scatter dirt all over the deck!  May have to go to Plan B on having plants on the back deck!
