    Good morning everyone….it is nice to be back in the sun room….I hope we see some sun here today.  It rained most of the night and is still drizzling a little.  I am glad I got some bulbs planted yesterday….perfect time for the rain.

    Melissa….you have a fun day with friends and family….all 8 of you….lol.

    Sandy….did you get a frost yet?  I know Charlie said he did in his area.

    Sharon….glad to see you joining us….hope you chime in more often.  I saw several flocks of gees heading south yesterday….you know what that means.

    I read the chit chat thread and see many of you had an exciting day yesterday.  Gayle got a new printer….Sue got a new vacuum….and Del….I LOVE your new car!  How exciting for you.

    Wendy….what strange hours for training….I do hope you can stay awake….lol.

    Molly….I’ve heard about the gum thing with moles….hope it works for you.

    Kathy….we haven’t been having that heat like you and Snowwolf.  Yesterday did get up to 75º, but it was so windy that it did not feel that cool.

    Karen….I have also had several hummingbird in the face experiences….aren’t they great?  This morning I saw a hummer resting in the smoke bush….he is so fat.  I think they will be leaving soon.

    Waving at everyone else, since I cannot remember what I just read a few minutes ago.

    I am not sure what I will do today.  Have a great day everyone.

    Caden…you are here in Iowa, correct???…..zone 5 if I remember correctly.  I would plant it now if I were you……dig a deep hole…..fill the hole with water….then plant the mum and cover it with dirt….and water again.  You want those roots to get established before Mr Winter comes.  We have already had a frost in NE Iowa…too soon, but nothing I can do about it.  Charlene

    Margba….I wanted to tell you that is the most beautiful mum I have ever seen!  I don’t think I have ever seen one that is such a vibrant red.

    I also grow red dipladenia…..but Donna is the expert.  Mine winter killed last winter.  I bought another one this year and it is doing good…hope it makes it through the winter. Donna can give you better advice.   Charlene

    Lovely pictures this morning…and also a lesson on Praying mantis….I also did not know that they harmed hummers.  I can’t say that I’ve ever seen a praying mantis here in town.

    We have an abundance of these this year

    Purple Bergamot Monarda…taken in late July

    It must be your lucky day, Molly!  I wish you would come here and help me find a few things that I put in smart places….never to be seen again……lol.  I doubt that my name is on your list…..ginger doesn’t like Iowa.  Charlene

    Good morning everyone.  It seems chilly this morning, but we are supposed to have another nice day.  I may only work a few hours in my shop and then take advantage of these days….I know they are numbered.

    Charlie….I know all about your sleepless nights….I have been having a lot of them lately….and I also know about cold winters.  We had the longest and coldest winter on record last year….I thought Spring was never going to arrive.  We had our 1st frost on September 12….one week ago….a couple weeks earlier than average 1st frost.

    Have a great day everyone!  Charlene

    Margba…..hope you check again….it is a red dipladenia.  The flower on those do resemble Mandevilla, but the leaves are much different.  Donna has a beautiful Red Dipladenia…..maybe she will see this and post a picture.  Charlene

    Just taking a guess here…but I think evening VIP is the same as chit chat….whatever it is called, it is still our evening get together, right?

    Joe….I only grow a few veggies….some in pots and some in the ground.  I used to grow many more, but now no kids at home, so I do not do any canning.  We got our killing frost (30º) on September 12th.  Some things survived it….others are history.

    Karen….I will hopefully get your email answered soon….some times I have to make the decision between coming here or my email….tonight I am here.

    Kathy….when you post from your phone, you will probably have to log in every time.  A phone does not have “cookies” to remember log in info, so is not a board problem….but maybe you need to refresh your cookies on your home PC if it was that difficult.

    Another day….another dollar….off to bed soon.

    Noreen….so glad to see you posting.  I have mentioned missing you a couple times on Steve’s thread and the weekend that Gayle’s subject was vines….I missed your gorgeous clematis and other vines.  Please do join in soon.  I am glad you got to travel and have fun….did Bobbie make the trip with you?  Charlene

    Those are so pretty….and you had me when you mentioned the zones.  Now that Snowwolf said that they are tried and true….I guess I’d better be adding them to my wish list for sure!  Charlene
