I've just gotten back from celebrating National Doughnut Day, which means I got a free doughnut with my iced coffee at Dunkin Donuts today. And no, this wasn't a marketing ploy by Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreme to all get us to go buy drinks, it's actually a real day! Apparently, it was started in 1938 by the Salvation Army, to honor the women who had served doughnuts to World War I soldiers. Pretty neat.
It's all day today, so be sure & get your free treat!
And we've got some new flowers in the yard. It's lily time, apparently. It's tough, because it's so incredibly hot that these pretty pink ones are fading almost as soon as they bloom. They're in a spot that gets direct sunlight, so the deep pink is gone pretty much within a day; I think these two bloomed this morning or late yesterday and were much darker before I got a chance to bring out my camera.
Unfortunately, you can see behind them where the ones that bloomed a day or two earlier are already turning brown. It's hot out there!
We've also got these red ones, which are doing better behind the house.
As of today, I noticed the orange ones had bloomed on the side of the house. They're brand new and still doing well, despite the heat.
