It's like yesterday never happened

I woke up today feeling great after a reasonably good night's sleep. It's like yesterday never happened. No more diarrhea, no more nausea. (I guess eating the bowl of cereal at 10 PM made a difference in morning hunger levels.)

I was kind of tired this afternoon and took a nap in the hammock, but that might also be due to the record-breaking heat we've had the past two days. 91 degrees, last experienced in 1978.

I spent some time in the garden too. I bought two caladium plants at Lowe's. Caladium come from Lake Placid, FL where Rik's parents winter, and we have always wanted to bring some back. Caladium don't transplant in December, when we are usually in Florida. I was so pleased to find variety "Blaze" in the Lowe's garden center. And while we're on the subject, what is the plural of caladium? Caladiums? Caladia?

I moved the poppies from their nice shady spot and put the caladium there. The poppies needed a sunnier locale, so I moved them into one of the raised beds that is currently unoccupied. I also moved a lavender bush that was in the wrong spot in the herb garden and never had a chance to spread properly. I hope all these established plants survive their hottest-day-of-the-year-so-far move!
