Today it is 96 degrees. I am so sick of the hot weather. I do not remember it ever still being this warm at the end of October. The heat is causing havoc in my garden! I have some flowers blooming that don't usually bloom this time of the year! And some of my fall and winter plants that are starting to come up are wilting because of the heat!
Water Hyacinths look so pretty in the Koi pond when in bloomMy Fall Pink hardy Camellia plant has blooms all over it. Should be in bloom in a week or two
Thank you for visiting me today on Blooming Tuesday. Please go visit Jean at Ms Green Thumb Jean's Blog for more Blooming Tuesday posts!

As I was walking around trying to decide what to post for Blue Monday, I noticed my husband playing with two of his vintage cars from his collection. They are Blue!
This is a blue 1965 Chevy Corvette Stingray. What makes this car so special is that it's all original, and that is the same Nassau Blue paint job that it had when it came off the assembly line in 1965. This car only has 27,000 original miles on it! We purchased this car around 10 years ago on ebay. It was in Pennsylvania and we live in California! We immediately looked at each other and screamed "Road Trip"! We flew to Pittsburgh and bought the car and drove it all the way home! It took us 10 days as we toured across the United States. We only drove on the old highways through all the little towns staying off all the Express Ways, Freeways or Main Highways. The owner of the car wanted to cry when we told him we were going to drive it to California because at that time it had less than 25,000 original miles on it and it had been parked since the late 60's because it had belonged to his best friend that had passed away. We still cannot believe that it made it all the way home!
This one is my favorite of all our Muscle cars. It's a 1957 Convertible Chevy Belair and it's turquoise blue! It's a real looker when it's top is down!Please click here and go visit Sally's Blog for more Blue Monday posts!
