As a result, we are free from the contingency contract. We can look for other houses and hopefully be able to take our time. There have been many prospective buyers for our house, but no offers yet. Should someone make us an offer, then we will have to start narrowing down our choices.
We have been down this road before when we had our house on the market about 5 years ago…and we ended up staying here. If we cannot sell our house that will be fine because I really enjoy our backyard. However, a bigger house would be very beneficial.
Here are a few photos of some other flowers I have growing.
This is a cleome, also known as a spider flower. It is one of my favorite plants. I do not recommend this flower as a cut flower because it has a strong musk fragrance. The seeds are inside long, thin, green pods. They are black and tiny, similar to poppy seeds but larger. In the late summer, the pods open up and the seeds drop everywhere and reseed. Small plants will sprout up and grow without any problems the following year. This plant was about 6 inches tall a few weeks ago.
This is a kwanso or kwanzo lily. It is the only known triploid day lily. They came from my husband’s grandmother.
