    Good Morning Larry and all..it was nice to see that you made it here without too much trouble this morning. It is promising to be a wonderful day here, not a cloud in the sky and the temps are comfortable. I have the lawns all mowed but there is a LOT of trimming to do. It seems so good to have the mower working like it should. Another mass shooting this time in a La. movie theater. It makes me wonder why this is happening so often lately. Prayers for all of the people who were killed, injured and traumatized by this senseless act. Larry enjoy your lunch out with your favorite girlfriend..it is sometimes just nice to do things like that. Have a wonderful day everyone.

    I agree with Ili, I would like all three of them here, would you believe I don’t have ANY Dasies any more, the ones I had just died out a few years ago. I can’t remember what kind they were but I had them for several years before they disappeared. Yours are beautiful Charlene!

    Good Morning Marilyn, Larry and all..I was reading some of the later posts from last night and every time I went to a new thread I had to sign in again…sometimes it is months before I have to do that. I have noticed that the annoying pop up has been removed..I HOPE for good! It is a nice start to the day here but rain predicted for later. More of the same ole stuff for me today, nothing exciting but I can live without the excitement. Have a wonderful day everyone.

    Good Evening Charlie and all…I had the shot in my eye this morning, it is still a little scratchy but not bad. It was a beautiful day here and I should have been mowing but the guy came and took the tractor to the shop. I got curious awhile ago about how tall the Zinnias are in the pots next to the front steps so I came in and got the tape measure…50 Inches from the top of the soil to the top of the blooms!!! I had no idea they would be that tall when I put them in those pots. I am going to be sure to save seeds this fall. I had put calebrocia and some small dahlias in the pots with them, they have faded out from the heat already but the zinnias are thriving. Not the prettiest pots but I love those zinnias!

    Good Evening Charlie and all…when I lived in Al we watched every Braves Game there was. I don’t watch any of them here, not particularly interested in any of them. We had about a 15 minute downpour complete with thunder and lightning, dropped 1-1/4″ inches of rain. Supposed to get cooler for the next few days. I am looking forward to that. The humidity was a killer here for a few days. I don’t know what I might watch on tv tonight, too wet to sit outside tonight. Had some Tom’s Chowder with DD, she has gone home and I will see what might not be a re-run tonight.

    I have had a LOT of tiny ants this year too. I think all of these critters are Mother Nature testing our dedication.

    Hibiscus might not be tasty to grasshoppers but it is the main meal for Japanese Beetles! Grrrrrrrr but the strange thing is there are Texas Star Hibiscus right next to the other ones and they never bother them. So happy yours is so pretty for you!

    Sandy I fully appreciate what you say about looking at flower beds and planning to change things. I do it all of the time! I have so many plants that have outgrown their places and where to move some of them is blowing my mind! I am really thinking of potting some up and taking them to the sale in the courthouse every saturday. But it has to get cooler for me to do that, I can’t take the heat like I did when I was younger.

    Good Morning all…it is going to be another steamy day here too, possible storms this afternoon. I guess I should plan to go to town and run some errands this morning. Nothing exciting going on here these days, but quiet is a good thing. Have a great day everyone.

    Good Evening Charlie and all..I wish I could say that we are having the same temps, it is the hottest day so far this summer with humidity that makes you think you are breathing underwater. I went out awhile ago and cut a huge bunch of White Swan Hydrangeas, the blooms were so heavy they were laying practically on the ground, some even laying on the bench next to them. This is supposed to be the hydrangea with the biggest blooms and I believe that. I haven’t done much outside today, just short bursts until it gets too hot. It is getting cloudy outside right now so maybe it will rain later and cool it down some. I made some chicken salad this afternoon, will have that and maybe some nice cold ice cream later. I am looking at the weather map on tv and it looks like most of the rain is going south of us.

    Good Morning Marilyn, Tina and all…Tina I had a problem when I lived in Al, they kept sending the same guy out who swore that it was ok and it wasn’t! Finally a woman tech came out on a Sat and was determined to find the problem and she did, there was a crack in a line down the road from my house, she fixed it and I never had another problem! After my problems with Verizon a few years ago I can fully understand your frustration…I hope this time they really find your problem and get it fixed. Now I am getting late notices in emails from Verizon and have not yet gotten the bill. How they expect me for pay a bill that I don’t have is beyond my understanding. This is the second month I have gotten that email and it really PI$$es me off! Since I added a new house phone last month I don’t have a clue how much that bill will be. The humidity is a little lower today than yesterday, but it is going to be very hot today. I need to get outside and do what has to be done before it gets too hot. Have a wonderful day everyone!!!

    I was just outside wandering around when I spotted something in one of the beds…My yellow four o’clocks are 4′ TALL!!! All of the rest of the other colors of 4:00s in the same bed are normal size. I can’t account for the difference in size, they were all normal sizes last year.

    I came home from church and except for a few quick trips out to water some plants I have stayed inside. Like Gayle it is horribly hot and humid today. I am waiting for the sun to go off of the pool so I can get in that, I don’t do full sun any more…I remember the good old days when I would lay out in the sun…got over that quickly!

    Good Morning Larry and all..sorry you had problems starting this. We had a little over 1″ of rain last night and the humidity and temps are going way up today. The cooler weather was nice but sure didn’t last long enough. I know I promised to not complain when it was so cold all winter but it would be nice if it was “normal” temps for awhile. I am hearing about people losing their homes to lightning last night so I will quit whining!!! Church this morning then depending on how wet it is outside I hope to get some weeds pulled unless it is so wet the soil comes with the weeds.`Still fighting the JBs they don’t seem to mind the rain. One strange thing is they are totally devouring my Hibiscus but they don’t go near the Texas Stars next to them. I know one thing for sure, that entire bed needs to be thinned out this fall. And I plan to move my Bloomerang Lilac this fall…the wind comes over it and it is leaning too much so it needs to find a place that the wind won’t bother it. I guess I will be very busy this fall. Have a great day everyone!
