It's ALIVE!!!

Yeah!!!  Last March when Russ & I went to Hawaii, I purchased this very skinny, cucumber looking thing.   I was assured that all I had to do was bring it home stick it in some dirt and it would turn into one of the beautiful PLUMERIA bushes that they have growing all over Hawaii. I did what they said and after 3 months I gave up!!! I stopped watering it...I moved it out to the plant graveyard (the deck) and forgot all about it.  It worked!!! I now have a somewhat less scary plant that smells WONDERFUL!!!
After 3 1/2 long years... today I finally got my wish!!! I got to mow my own grass!!!!  It has been 3 weeks and 1 day since we hydro seeded.  I WILL ADMIT THAT I WAS WRONG (I know that it doesn't happen very often, so make a note of it!) I was all for seeding.  It would save us money and it doesn't make that much of a difference.  Again, I was wrong!  I am very impressed with how well our grass did.  It looks spectacular!!!

I rode passed your house the other day and your grass looks great! I bet you are loving not having dirt anymore. I'm glad you finally got to mow your lawn :)
