    Sorry, no picture.  You have to post pictures through a 3rd party u like Photobucket, for example.  Or you can C&P from Facebook to here.

    I hoe you can get the picture to show.

    Yes Marge the dipth something (I can ‘t remember either) is a variety of Mandeville or vice versa.  You can bring it inside for winter & put it in a sunny window.  Some have better luck with this than others.  Mine always lost leaves & was pretty straggly looking by Spring but I’d try anyway.

    They do have the Black & Blue but you have to order a $30 minimum

    Pretty Salvia but I only have so much room.  LOL  My B&B did not make it through the winter so I’m looking to replace that.

    My biggest thrill/surprise is the Coral Nymph that I started from seed this past winter. .  It got pretty big which I didn’t expect & today I found two more good sized ones that I guess came up from seed.  Yaaayy.

    Welcome back Wanda, even if only for a while.  Congrats on the new little one. I hope your work situation works out for you.  I seem to remember you were quite frustrated with it & I know that feeling.  I now work only on an as needed basis.  Basically as a helper to the girl I trained.  LOL  I like that much better, I help her with whatever project she needs an extra set of hands for  & get paid.  No paperwork , no reports to file, no having to put up with company BS, etc;  Just do the job & collect a paycheck.  Might be a smaller paycheck but it’s OK.

    I hope you get to travel like you want soon also.  Life is short girl; do it while you can. or someday you might be saying you wish you had.

    Well, there you are.  We were wondering what happened to you but I kinda thought you might be on the road.  Glad you’re back.

    Good afternoon everybody.  Sun still shining & still nice temps for working in the yard.  It was only 64º at 9:30 this morning.

    Still trying to get somebody on the phone so I can make an appt to get this van inspected.  Very frustrating when they tell you it is best to call ahead before you come in but then nobody answers their phone.  I finally left a message this morning with the one who is my brother’s friend.  I explained who I was, what I needed & that I was having a problem getting it done & I really needed it done.  No response but then I’m not really surprised at that.

    If I get pulled over or caught with the expired sticker I’ll just have to plead my case & hope they understand.  I don’t know what else to do at this point.  My BFF suggested that Monday I get youngest DB to stop by this guy’s shop (It’s his childhood friend) & ask him , in person, when would be a good time  for me to bring the vehicle in.  I’ll guess that is what I’ll do.  (DB is not home this weekend.)  But I was home all this week & next week will be working Tues. & Thur.

    Somebody said I bet if you show up at his garage at 7AM when he first opens he’ll probably go ahead & do the inspection for you.  Well, probably is not good enough for me. I need to know for sure before I drive 20 miles there & 20 miles back for nothing.

    Oh well, enough of that.   I took Chelsea for a walk & got my d’way bed cleaned out for the coming Fall.  Weeded it, cut things back & moved Ice Plant, Mexican Hat & Bee Balm elsewhere.  Still have a couple of things I want to move but will wait for cooler weather or a cloudy day to do those.

    I have a lantana that is in a pot & doing rally well this year.  In fact the roots are through the bottom on the pot into the ground.  Instead of putting it in a bigger pot & then in the GH for the winter I am thinking of planting it in the ground .  Can’t decide on that.  I ‘m not sure if it is hardy or not & don’t want to kill it.

    Leslie how did the employee mange to get hit by lightning inside a bldg?  Was he in the doorway or something?

    And I don’t want to hear freeze warning.   Fortunately I won’t till probably Jan. or Feb. & TG for that.  I don’t like cold weather.

    I was going back out & do another bed but since it is already mid afternoon I think I’ll wait till tomorrow.  I have laundry I need to put away so will do that instead.

    SSSSHHHH.  You weren’t supposed to admit that.  Haven’t you ever heard of “Don’t ask, don’t tell”?  LOL

    Bacopa is another plant that I can’t get to live thru the summer.  It always looks good as a filler in containers.

    Snow, you got kicked off four times but then they let you back 3 out of the 4.  LOL  But you didn’t tell us what that plant is?

    My Miniature Rose has decided to bloom for the last time this year.

    I haven’t really done anything since I posted this afternoon but I want to say Hi anyway.

    I’ve gotten over my cold but my friend/coworker now has it.    I told her to stay far, far away from me. Didn’t work.

    These are the 1st ones I’ ve ever had any luck with so I’m trying not to kill them.  The newest one is still in the original pot.
