Huh? say What??

We received a very interesting piece of mail the other day.

Now keep in mind we bought this house new back in 1994
and are the only ones that have ever lived here.

The only ones to have ever had this address.

Look who this is addressed to....

umm, yeh

we don't use Verizon

this number isn't familiar at all

I haven't seen any unfamiliar faces around the house

I've asked the family who invited him

they assure me none of them did

My address has been blocked to protect the innocent

Fertilizer Friday ~ 10/8/10

It's time once again to Flaunt Your Flowers over at Tootsie Time.
Be sure to stop over and see everyone's gardens.

Not much is left blooming in my gardens... but the Morning Glory that reseeds itself each year is blooming it's heart out. 

You can see the caterpillars and grasshoppers have arrived
 by the chewed holes in the leaves.

I love this color, it's so vivid.

Wishing everyone a great weekend!
