    Good Morning Sue, Larry and all..the rain missed us last night but the temps are lower today. It was really muggy last night. The sun is bright so I will spend the day outside cleaning up some more beds. But first I need to get some coffee in me to give me the incentive to get outside.

    I have chicken breasts and veggies in the crock pot. There should be enough for a couple of meals.

    I agree..leave them there. I am sure the daylilies are strong enough to get up around them. If next year they seem too thick you can take a few out. I like them!

    It is still too wet to work outside so I am working in the house right now, too hot to work in the greenhouse, for the plants not me! I don’t like to transplant when it is that hot the plants want to wilt. Tina is that the “world’s longest yard sale” that starts in Al and runs through Tenn?? I always wanted to go there when I live in Al but never could find anyone to go with me.

    Good Morning Sue, Larry and all..we had about 2″ of rain overnight and the temps are supposed to be in the 80′s today, sounds like a hot, humid day for us. The prom weekend was a huge success, after the prom they all headed for Nags Head and the beach. I bet there will be a lot of tired kids in school today. I see DGD is on her way to school this morning, I wonder how many won’t make it there! I guess I will have to work in the greenhouse today, I have many pots to make up so that will get done…I hope! First I have some things to do in the house but if that doesn’t get done now, it will later when it gets too hot to work in the greenhouse. I still can’t tell what the secret seeds are, guess when they bloom I will know! They look good and healthy, but I have never been able to identify the leaves of a lot of plants, they all look alike to me! Have a great day everyone, I am off to the get some things done!

    It started raining here about 4:00 and it is supposed to get nasty later tonight. I closed the greenhouse up and came inside. Balanced my checkbooks and fixed some dinner. Now I will try to find something on tv I haven’t seen before. I not I have a couple of books waiting to be read.
    Not a lot of excitement in my life these days but I can handle that! Still a lot to be done outside but I can’t control the weather so it has to wait.

    Good Morning Larry, Eva and all…I was here earlier but didn’t want to start because it would be two GM threads. So I took my coffee outside and watched the birds wake up! I took the time to read some of last night’s posts too. It sounds like spring has finally arrived to most places. Charlene I put my fleece sheets back on the bed when I washed them…With an open window next to my bed they felt good this morning. I am not sure what I might do after church…but there is no end to things that need work. I try not to mow on Sundays in respect for the neighbors, but I still have some things to do in the greenhouse, I might even get most of the things moved outside today. That is always a major project. Have a wonderful day everyone!

    Hello Charlie, Karen and all…I had to go to the store today to get some things for the church, spent way too much money but that is ok too. Then I made cookies all afternoon for a prison ministry they do every year. Was about to get relaxed when DD came over and dragged me to the neighboring courthouse to take Prom Pics…my DGD is the last of my kids to have a prom. So we took lots of pictures, I came home and got into some cooler clothes, it is actually quite warm outside today. I managed to get the greenhouse watered this morning but that is all that got done outside. DD wanted me to go with her to help with the After Prom party they have every year..I begged off on that, it lasts all night. It keeps the kids active and out of trouble, they give prizes for all kinds of things and they can take off the prom clothes and get comfortable for the rest of the evening. GD looked so pretty and her BF looked great too. He graduated last year but he will do anything she wants to do. I got to visit with some of the mothers and grandmothers I haven’t seen since last year’s Prom. I took some lasagna out of the freezer and will have that for dinner with a salad. Then I plan to become a vegetable for the rest of the evening.

    One thing I learned about them the hard way: Do NOT prune them back until after the last frost of the spring. I lost so many of them in Al. until a niece told me that, after that they did well if I waited until spring to cut them back. Unfortunately I don’t have any here, I had some in DD’s yard and GDD mowed them down one fall and they never came back.

    I am afraid most of my snowball bushes are not going to bloom this year, in fact a couple might not even be alive. We had colder weather this year than ever and if they survive at all they won’t get big enough to bloom this year. I see very little leaves close to the bottom of the bushes and no sign of anything above them.

    Good Morning all…I was here very early this morning but nobody seemed to be around so I got dressed and went to town for some things I really needed badly, namely vacuum cleaner bags! Of course I got a lot more things too!! It is a beautiful day here today, it started out cloudy but the sun came out and I have to have something to eat before I go out. I hope everyone is having the weather they want or need, I know I am having some beautiful weather to be outside so here I GOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

    I don’t have any now and wish I did. So many things froze out this winter, guess I need to replace mine.

    It looks like a plant to me but don’t ask me what it is..leave it awhile and it will show you what it is.
