Update July 24–my Pretty Much Picasso did not make it. The heat and humidity of this summer were too much for it. Actually, I’m getting reports from all over the country that they are having trouble with this plant also. Most folks say it shrivels up and the blooms don’t open all the way. I promised I’d be honest–so there you have it.
Original message—-Here you see agastache ‘Golden Jubilee‘ and ‘Pretty Much Picasso’ petunia paired together. The lime outer edges on the petunias look pretty nifty with the lime in the agastache. Aunt Debbi and I are pairing up for a pretty spectacular journey.
Debbi from Aunt Debbi’s Blog and I are walking to the moon with others who sign up at Purdue University’s site. She and I decided we’d get in shape and are hopeful to lose a bucket full of pounds along the way. Purdue wants people to count their steps and together we can reach the moon and good health in the process.
I commented on Facebook yesterday that there is a need for me to lose about 50 pounds. Debbi said she wanted to lose a few too so I teasingly said–well let’s walk to the moon or something. Debbi got right on the matter and found the Purdue group. This is going to be loads of fun and more successful than me trying to be accountable to myself.
Debbi and I are encouraging each other to walk daily and watch our calorie intake. I’m not a dieter but I do know how to eat better and make more wise choices. I think Debbi is like minded on the subject. She has a lot of fresh vegetables from her garden in Texas and this is the perfect time to eat more of them.
Thank you Debbi. I am really looking forward to the journey with you. I will be there for you too.
Debbi and I are going to record our process on Facebook and our blogs.
