    This is not Bindweed but true Morning Glories and they bloom in all colors.

    I came in from church and was changing into my grungy clothes when I heard it…thunder! It has rumbled all afternoon long, just enough lightning to keep me from going outside and very little rain, just occasional sprinkles.  But I don’t want to turn into fried bacon so I won’t go work outside and I don’t feel like doing much inside so I have read and snoozed and just plain had a lazy afternoon.

    Del I normally don’t need a solar cover the pool is usually too warm in the summer as it is. But three inches of cold rain water sure did cool it down yesterday.

    If I don’t have my glasses on I do the same thing so now I make sure I know what button I am pushing, turned the heat on once instead of a/c. So you are not alone.

    Things like that make all of your hard work well worthwhile doesn’t it? To have strangers come in and admire your work is precious. Congratualtions!!! The sun is shining and it is pouring rain too…another inch added to what we got yesterday. I will never get my beds finished at this rate.

    Hosta would do well in there too. And easy to take care of. Japanese painted fern is another idea.  Add some pots of colorful coleus and impatiens too if you like. More ideas once I wake up a little and have some coffee.

    Gayle I am with you on the clams. But I don’t want just a dozen or two I want a LOT of clams.  There isn’t much in the line of seafood I don’t like but clams are on the top of my list of delicious.

    I also wondered where Steve’s post was so I am glad to know now it was just his internet. I didn’t get any new pics yesterday and it is raining so hard today I probably won’t get any today either so I will just enjoy all of your beauties. Giddy I have heard there were crepe myrtles that will live in zone 5 but don’t know what variety they are. Probably a google of that would find some for you. Steve I didn’t get my crepes pruned last year and mine are also drooping this year. MD you have so much patience and we all are happy that you do. Pictures are beautiful today.

    You have all had better luck with nasturtiums than I had this year. Mine lost all of their leaves and just stems left. So I pulled all of them.

    I also have a daughter who lives between Tampa and Orlando. They are holding their breaths also. We are probably going to get some of the rains from that but not the winds…we had enough of that last year to last a lifetime.

    At this point my planning includes LESS but I know during the winter I will probably do too much again.  I am trying to get all of the beds with enough perennials that I will only need a few annuals to fill in. Now if there was an answer to keeping the weeds (wire grass) from moving into the beds I would be a happy camper. I have used bricks and the plastic edgings but the roots of that grass just dig under them and go crazy. I try to keep a big enough edge from the boarder but that fills in so fast it is hard to keep up with it.

    I wish I could send you all some! We have had storms off and on all day and we just got a lull so I went out and pumped two inches of water out of the pool on already saturated ground. I guess I will be mowing again soon too. :(

    I think it is wonderful Wendy, the pictures are great. You may have started a whole new trend on here and wouldn’t that be fun? I guess I really need to go trade in my old phone and get one that takes pictures…it is way past due to be replaced but I haven’t gone down to get it yet.
