    I have several varieties of sphinx…aka hummingbird moths.

    These guys are bigger and are busy during daylight hours.

    These smaller guys are busy after dark

    What a beautiful sunrise, Steve!

    Donna….those are great sky and water pics…and it is so very nice to meet Rick….waving at him!

    I took this pic a few weeks back, but failed to share it.  It is a daylily that Bette gave me as a gift last year….it is very pretty.  Thanks Bette….and hope you see it!

    Good morning Molly….you are right about the 2 posts.  I will C&P mine here.

    I guess everyone is sleeping in this morning. It sure would have been easy to do for me. We have 44º now and I think it is supposed to get into the lower 60s and then chances of rain tonight. We could use some rain.

    The farmers have started hauling beans to town. so the asian beetles are coming to visit as well. They seem to migrate to town when the beans are harvested.

    Just work in my shop for me today. Have a great day everyone. Prayers for Sue and her family….what a sad tragedy.

    Bette…check out today’s picture thread.  I shared a pic of the daylily you gave me last year…it was beautiful this year…..a lot more blooms than I expected for the 1st year.

    Melissa….I got your card yesterday….thank you so much!  I love cards that rattle….can’t wait to grow those.  Charlene

    Good evening everyone.  We had a beautiful morning.  It was sunny and 70º at noon….and then the cold front moved in.  Right now we are 55º.  I closed the doors and windows, but don’t need the furnace on quite yet….but probably will by morning.

    I have TV shows to watch…infact, I hear that Big Bang theory has already started.  I will then watch Scorpion and 9pm is Castle.

    Kathy….I wouldn’t worry too much about your spraying not doing any good yet….it usually says 2 hrs before a rain and you had a lot more than 2 hrs.  It often takes several days for things to wilt after being sprayed with roundup….patience, my friend.  Charlene

    We are having hamburger vegetable soup with bisquits.  I imagine I will dig out the carton of Bunny Tracks ice cream later while watching Castle.  Charlene

    The variegated wax ivy is a houseplant and likes shade…there are many other ivy houseplants that like shade…and most of them only need small pots, so the weight should not be a problem.

    I think it looks great, Gayle.  I would hang spinner or chimes from the center….from the 2 left and right of the center, I would hang 2 small matching red pots with a variegated wax ivy….and from the next 2 down I would hang 2 matching blue pots (like the ones on your deck) with a different kind of ivy.  JMO  Charlene

    Steve…I grew that verbena one year and loved it…so pretty.

    Donna…your torenia is still beautiful!  Mine always peter out on me.  Do you have it in shade?

    Julie…great Monarch pics….we still have a few around here….maybe just passing through.

    Mary…another great hummer shot!

    Melissa…those potatoes are a bonus….and what a huge one that last one is!  Do you think it is hollow?

    I have taken some fall shots, but just now getting them on my puter, so I didn’t get them shared in the weekend post.

    I replaced the plants in front of my shop with a couple dried arrangements and a Vancouver Centennial geranium.

    I like these hydrangeas and sedum….just an old rusty pail….lol

    Good morning Wendy and Melissa….

    Wendy, I was thinking about some kind of exercise regiment, but haven’t gotten in to it quite yet since there is still so much work to do outdoors.  Good luck with your new schedule.

    Melissa….I am also going to try to save a couple SP bulbss in the fridge.  Larry got me a small fridge for my birthday.  It seems he was sick of all of the seeds in our fridge….who knew?  LOL

    I think you’d better put that geranium in moist soil.  They usually rot in water before they root….do better right in dirt.  Sounds like you had a very busy (as usual) weekend….but productive.  Charlene

    Good morning Charlie and Molly and all who visit later.  It is very pleasant here this morning and I believe we are supposed to get into the upper 70s again.  After today I think there is a cold front moving in.  It sure has been nice while it lasted, and the temps coming with the cold front sound not so bad, either.

    Charlie….you just unlock this place any time you want.  It sounds like you had a great day yesterday with your family….what a wonderful surprise for you!

    Molly….I am hoping for the best for your DDs.  I am glad you were able to sleep.  Sometimes news like that makes for sleepless nights.

    Wendy….just what did you neighbor expect you to do with the tree roots?  That has me puzzled.People do not dig up all of the roots when they cut a tree down.

    Back to work for me today after a 5 day vacation….it has been fun, but I am ready to get back to my routine.

    Have a great day everyone.  Charlene

    That’s an interesting looking gadget.  For just the 2 of us, we often use the George Foreman or our toaster oven.  I hope this new appliance works well for you guys.  Charlene
