Walking the Dogs this Morning

While walking the dogs this morning I happened upon what I thought was a good idea for the yard. These hot Houston summers are not only tough on us, they are brutal on our lawns! A Willowbend area neighbor has a great idea to combat the heat that I wanted to share.

That narrow patch of grass between the street and sidewalk always takes a beating. Here’s what she did to add color and beauty!
Crushed granite as the foundation, ivy ground cover in the center with potted garden cabbage, lettuce and a brilliant purple flower.

I just love this! Can any one identify the purple flower? I’d love to add it to my garden.

Pan Am

20110925-081117.jpg

OK everyone, get ready for the new series Pan Am! It is going to be this years season hit.

I have for you the real deal, a 1959-1960 Pan Am bag! My good friend who is 72 years young was living in New York City in 1960 and dating a Pan Am Stewart. So dazzled by her presence he gave her The Bag!
Now I have it and asking your opinion on just how much would you pay for the Real Deal?

Enjoy tonight’s primer and let me know what you think!!
